Absences are only permitted with evidence such as a doctor’s note.

You must be available to successfully complete the PARTNERS Academic Summer School (PASS) and meet the terms of the PARTNERS offer.


Holidays are not an acceptable reason for absence. If you have a holiday planned during this event you should rearrange it.

You must also ensure that you have plenty of time afterwards to complete and hand in your project work by the deadline agreed with your academic during PASS. The exact date is dependant on which subject strand you sit at PASS and will be confirmed at the start of the event.


If you are ill during PASS, or have a condition that may prevent you from taking part in any of your sessions, we will require a note from your doctor.


Other circumstances

Other circumstances for absence from the Academic Summer School would be considered on an individual basis.
