Swansea University

1. Introduction

The University recognises that attendance and engagement with supervisory sessions and research engagements is a key element in successful student retention, progression, achievement and employability. This approach serves to identify students who may be experiencing difficulties and might need particular support.  The University also has a legal duty to monitor attendance and to act on non-attendance to meet its requirements in reporting attendance to external sponsors, as well as meeting the sponsorship requirements of UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) for the monitoring of International students studying in the UK on a Tier 4 student visa. A centralised electronic system has been developed for monitoring attendance for these purposes.
