Student Attendance Overview
Studying in Australia whilst on a student visa means you are legally obligated to attend 80% of classes throughout the study period. Exemptions will be made in the case of serious illness or an unavoidable event where the minimum attendance cannot be made.
If your attendance is less than 90% during a study period of five weeks or fewer, or less than 85 per cent for a study period of more than five weeks, you will be required to attend an interview with Student Services regarding your absences.
If attendance drops to 80% and no substantial evidence has been provided, you will receive an Intention to Report notice. If your attendance then continues to drop below 70 per cent, you will be reported, regardless of any evidence provided.
