Further information
Attendance of classes
According to the university rules attendance at classes is obligatory. More than 30% of absence from an academic subject in a term results in an automatic exclusion from the semester, while the reason for being not present is irrelevant (Students’ Guide, p. 6.).
According to that the acceptable number of uncertified absences from lectures is maximum 3 per semester. Above this level the Department of Animal Nutrition will refuse to recognise the semester and will not sign the student’s black book. Absences because of clinical practices or research activities connected to the diploma thesis are not treated as uncertified absences, but these must be verified on the official certificate by the teacher or the tutor.
One absence from the practicals is acceptable without proof. In case of further absences, subjects of the practicals must be recited within 2 weeks at the lecturer of topic. No more than 4 missed practicals will be accepted from which 3 must be recited.

Exams: see the detailed information separately under the title “Animal Nutrition 2. Oral Exam”.
