Student engagement

Regular engagement is an important aspect of learning and the student experience. If you engage with all aspects of your programme you are more likely to succeed with your studies. The University expects you to engage fully with your programme of study, join all timetabled on-campus teaching events, and participate in any online activities that are part of your programme.

Your school will advise you of the specific engagement requirements of your course, including activities and events that are mandatory. Schools monitor your engagement with campus-based face-to-face events, as well as online content. If your school assesses that your engagement levels are low enough to affect your studies, they will reach out to offer support.

Physical attendance at face-to-face events is recorded when you swipe your ID card against the card readers in our centrally timetabled teaching spaces. You can register your attendance up to 15 minutes before the start time of a teaching event.

You are able to monitor your engagement with campus-based teaching events using the Engagement Tile on the MyUoL app. You will be able to see the percentage of teaching events you have attended. You will also be able to view data around your absences, including those which were authorised.
