UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) require the University of Plymouth to monitor the attendance, engagement and absences of all sponsored Student visa (formerly Tier 4) students.
This applies to every student with a Student visa who is being sponsored under the University of Plymouth’s sponsor license, regardless of their faculty or programme of study, and includes students studying at University of Plymouth International College (UPIC).
Students with a Student visa are expected to engage fully with their studies and have the ability and intention to progress and succeed on their programme of study. As a Student visa holder your visa was issued for the purpose of full time study in the UK and you should ensure that your studies are always your first priority. You should make every effort to continually progress on your course with the aim of graduating successfully.
Faculties within the University have their own attendance monitoring policies and procedures, and the UKVI Compliance Team will also be made aware if a student with a Student visa receives a warning through these processes. However, this policy takes precedence with regard to students with a Student visa.
