We want you to get the most out of your time here at BCU, and good attendance is the first step to succeeding with your studies.
When you attend a session on your timetable, you’ll be asked to register your attendance with your student ID card. This tells us you’re in class and engaging with your learning. More importantly, it helps us to identify students who might be struggling with their attendance, to allow us to provide the best possible support.
How to register your attendance
Buildings with card readers: Simply hold your student ID card up to the card reader in your classroom to record your attendance when you arrive.
You may also be issued with a 'challenge code' by your tutor, this will enable you to record your attendance in rooms where there is not a reader.
Buildings without readers: For rooms without a card reader, show your ID to your tutor to let them know you’re there when you arrive.
When to check in
You must register your attendance from 20 minutes before the start of your class up until 20 minutes before the class is scheduled to end. For example, if your lecture is from 9-10am you can check-in between 8.40am and 9.40am.
Stick to your timetable
Our system will record your attendance against your timetable, so please make sure you attend the correct sessions. Once you’ve enrolled or re-enrolled, your timetable will be released and you'll be able to see it on the homepage of iCity. To get a longer-term view of your timetable, choose ‘Your Timetable’ from the top left menu.
Manage your attendance on the go
You can keep track of your attendance and record any absences during your studies using mySRS.
