We have replaced School Offices with six newly created Academic Support Hubs. These Hubs will allow you to access face-to-face help when you need it and will ensure you speak to the person who is best placed to assist you with your query.

We monitor attendance as research has shown that regular attendance and academic achievement are closely linked; it is therefore important that we know you are attending regularly. By monitoring student attendance we hope to be able to identify students who need support at an early stage and put in place measures to help them continue their studies. Student Attendance Monitoring is a requirement for all students. The University expects you to attend all your mandatory timetabled sessions.
Student Attendance Monitoring (S.A.M) is just one of the reasons your UCLan Card is so important, as this is used to register your attendance in class.
