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.

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.
