Immigration, Attendance & Absence Issues

This page provides information about attendance monitoring and information specifically for students from countries outside the European Economic Area who require permission to be in the UK and to study here.

Student attendance monitoring

UAL student attendance monitorig will be used to support the University’s Highly Trusted Sponsor status and meet the requirements set by the UK Government whilst continuing to provide a good student experience.

Consecutive and sporadic continued unauthorised absences will lead to suspension from your course and could then lead to withdrawal from the University.

Studets with visas 

As a Tier 4 student visa holder, your withdrawal will be reported to UK Visas and Immigration and you will be required to leave the UK.

Remember to inform your Immigration Compliance Administrator of any changes to your circumstances.
