Absence - What should you do?
You must inform the compliance team as soon as possible by completing & returning this form - please read the instructions at the end
No planned absence during term time is expected or will be authorised by the University, however we understand that sometimes exceptional circumstances occur that mean you may be absent for short periods.
The compliance team must be kept informed when these situations happen so we can assist you in maintaining your visa status and so we can explain your situation to UKVI officers if you are stopped at the UK border.
You must inform us if the period of absence stated on this form becomes longer
Extenuating circumstance procedures should still be followed as per usual procedures
What will the University do with this information?
- On receipt of this form we will check with your Faculty / Supervisor. If they have stated that you can continue with your studies after your absence no action will be taken, other than to record the dates of your absence
- If your Faculty have stated that you cannot continue with your studies after your absence we will be in touch with you to confirm the next steps
- It is unlikely that an absence of longer than one month would be permitted during term time. If the absence was longer than this then usually the University will stop sponsoring you under Tier 4
