If you have a valid reason for non-attendance, you are required to provide an explanation along with any relevant documentation to your course administrator and a copy to the International Office. If your non-attendance is due to medical reasons, you must submit a Medical Certificate from a doctor who is registered and approved by the Irish Medical Council. Certified or documented absences will not affect your attendance record.
Students who are unable to attend college due to sickness must contact the College reception prior to 13:00 on the first day of sickness to explain the problem. Students who are unable to attend college for 1 or more days must produce a medical certificate which confirms non-attendance due to sickness. This certificate must be handed in to the College Administrator/International Officer on the day that the student returns to college.
