Certificate of Attendance

For many of our classes you can gain a Certificate of Attendance providing you attend at least 80% of the taught sessions for the course. This level of attendance is set centrally by Imperial College and cannot be changed by the tutors on the course on which are you areenrolled or by the Evening Class/Lunchtime Learning staff.

Attendance is measured by the register for each class and so it is important to ensure that you are properly marked on the register for a class, particularly if you arrive late.

Certificates for those who attend at least 80% of the taught sessions are sent by email automatically soon after the end of the course of study.
