What do I need to bring with me?
You should bring your University of Stirling ID Card (physical or on the University of Stirling App). If you have a physical visa then you should also bring your BRP visa card (if you have a physical visa). If you have a digital visa then you do not need to bring anything additional.
What happens if I don’t attend?
If you do not attend you will be deemed to be 'not in attendance' and we will contact your Faculty to investigate your non-attendance.
Those students identified as 'not in attendance' will be formally withdrawn from their studies. The University will report to the UK (Visas and Immigration) that the student has discontinued their studies and that the University ceases to sponsor the student’s visa. As such the Student Visa is invalidated and the student will be told that they are no longer entitled to remain in the UK.
What if I cannot attend?
If you cannot attend in person due to a valid reason which includes: illness; placement; on year abroad; or any other academic reason connected to your studies, you must email firstname.lastname@example.org to inform the University of your absence and inability to attend in person. In the case of illness, you must provide a copy of a medical certificate. Your email will be considered and you will receive a response in writing.
If you are a research student on fieldwork then you should have completed the fieldwork request form on your Research Compass.
If you are a postgraduate taught student who has returned home early to complete your studies from home and you are not returning to the UK then you must have sought permission from your Faculty before leaving. You should contact email@example.com for advice.
Reasons other than that outlined above are not regarded as valid reasons for non-attendance.
