Student who will come more than 15 minutes later is not allowed to participate in practical training or seminar.

Students are not allowed to change specified group.

In accordance to The MU Study and Examination Regulations all practical education and lectures are obligatory.

Absence in tuition and make up classes

Without an excuse, it is possible to miss 10% of the total internship time. In practice, this means either one bedside teaching or one seminar. All absences above the allowed limit must be made up for. A planned exam in a different subject on a given internship day is not a valid excuse. To make up for the absence at the bedside teaching session, the students are expected to agree on a new tuition time with a relevant assistant (the one whose class they missed). The absence in seminar could be amended by attending another seminar with a different group of students, where same topic is discussed. Please be aware, there might not be same-topic seminar scheduled in convenient time scale. The students might also choose to make up for asences in either tuition during "the substitutional" week (18th week).

The signature and the name tag of the teacher must ALWAYS be stated on the attendance list.
