Course attendance requirements:
Attendance is compulsory for all lessons unless agreed separately in class. You need to attend a minimum of 75% of classes, so in case there are, for example, 10 contact times, each 4 hours, you can miss three 4-hour classes (12 hours). If your absences are more than that, your grade will drop by one, for example from 3 to 2. In case your absences exceed 50% of contact hours, you need to consult your teacher on how to finalize the course (this could mean retaking the whole course, doing supplementary tasks or taking additional classes, if available).
Attendance requires activity from the part of the student. Students are advised to take part in online classes from locations with sufficient Internet connection using laptops. Students are encouraged to book spaces from the campus to ensure a good working environment if needed.
If the required tasks and requirements are not met, student needs to enroll again for the course. For supplementary or delayed tasks, there will be no feedback.
All assignments will be checked for plagiarism.
