Starting 2019-2020, you'll have to be on time to have your attendance count. The previous '10-minute' grace period is no longer in effect and has been removed from the Exam- and Education Regulations. An instructor/tutor can deny access to a tutorial, workshop or practical if you aren't on time.
Be on time: no '10-minute' grace periods anymore.
For many courses and practicals, attendance is part of the course examination. The attendance requirement means that you need to be present at (a percentage of) the meetings.
If you do not pass the attendance requirement you cannot pass the exam, the resit or the course in the current academic year. If you took the exam or the resit your exam result will be annulled. The attendance requirement can only be passed in the upcoming academic year(s). This implies you need to take the exam in the upcoming year(s).
If you already passed the attendance requirement, but failed the exam(s) you can re-attend tutorial group meetings to prepare for a resit, see 'Repeat Education'.
The miminal required attendance can differ per type of meeting and per programme. The formal regulation can be found in the current (2019-2020) Rules and Regulations.

You may only miss a certain number of tutorial group meetings if you report your absence personally to the tutor, at the latest on the day of the tutorial meeting. It is no longer possible to request a catch-up assignment to compensate for a missed tutorial group meeting.
At the start of a course, the coordinator will announce if it is allowed to attend any missed sessions in another tutorial group. If so, you contact the tutor of the group and he/she will decide if you can join his/her group for that session. Please note that your attendance record will not change, only the attendance in your assigned tutorial group counts!
No switching tutorial groups
Switching of tutorial groups is not possible. In case of exceptional personal circumstances that merit an individual arrangement with regards to the times of tutorial groups you can contact the Academic Advisors by email. They will decide whether you are eligible for such an individual arrangement. To combine two studies, adjustments can be made. Working next to your study is not considered as valid reason
s in order to request an individual arrangement.
