Attendance policy

Class attendance is obligatory!

Classes begin at the time written on the schedule, please always arrive on time. Anyone arriving later than 15 minutes after the class starts will be considered absent.
In the event of an absence, the student must excuse themselves no later than by the beginning of the lesson, otherwise it is considered an unexcused absence. The student always announces an absence to their instructor. In the event of an absence of more than three days the student announces the absence to the programme administrator
If attendance in the course is lower than 70 % of the hourly composition of the course, the student will not be evaluated for this course and receive the mark N (unclassified) on the certificate. If a student is unclassified in one or more courses, they may continue their studies only with the consent of the academic coordinator of the programme.
If a student receives four unexcused absences (one absence = 90 minutes), the student is expelled from the programme without any entitlement to compensation of the course fee.

4 and more unexcused absences -> Expelled from the programme
Excused absences > 30% -> Unclassified (N) in the specific course
Excused absences > 50% -> Unclassified (N) in all courses
Short-term absence (1 to 2 days) -> Announce absence to your instructor
Long-term absence (over 3 days) -> Announce abscence to programme administrator


Late entry into the programme

The maximum possible delay is three weeks from the official commencement of the programme. If the delay is any longer than this you have to inform the administrative coordinator about it.
In individual cases may students (mostly intermediate or native Slavic speakers) join the programme even later, but always after the consultation with the academic coordinator of the programme.
