UPIC students

What do I need to do?

While you are studying with University of Plymouth International College (UPIC) you will have your engagement monitored and recorded by UPIC staff and will also be subject to their Student in Jeopardy programme.

For more information on UPIC attendance and engagement monitoring please speak to the Student Services team in UPIC. 

Integrated programme students and students who have progressed from UPIC have their engagement monitored by the University. 

What do I do if I experience problems?

Speak to the student support team in UPIC as soon as you are experiencing problems. 

What will happen if I do not attend or my attendance/engagement is not satisfactory?

Your engagement is monitored from a range of data sources and if no engagement or attendance is recorded for you, or you are not engaging satisfactorily, your Faculty will be contacted and asked to confirm your recent engagement, and record this in University systems as appropriate.

If you have not been engaging with your course and this does not improve then the situation will be escalated. A meeting will be arranged with you, representatives from your Faculty, the compliance team and ISA. This meeting may result in your interruption or withdrawal from your programme, dependant on how much of your course has been missed.

If you are withdrawn or interrupted from your programme due to poor attendance you would be required to leave the UK, and depending on the reasons for your non-attendance, the University may not be prepared to sponsor you again under Tier 4.

Therefore it is very much in your interest to ensure that you are engaging with your course fully, and that you seek help early if you experience problems.
