Absences

If you’re pregnant and are unable to attend a class because of a health problem related to your pregnancy, your absence does not generally speaking have any particular consequences. It is however appropriate to inform the teaching staff member concerned of your absence.

If the class entails an attendance check, you will give a copy of the medical certificate to your Faculty’s secretariat or directly to the teaching staff member, in accordance with the procedures laid down in your programme’s study regulations.

If you’re unable to attend an examination due to health reasons, it is essential that you inform your Faculty’s secretariat prior to the date of the examination and present a medical certificate, in accordance with the procedure laid down in your programme’s study regulations.
