Welcome, Induction and Transition for Taught Students
Late arrival process
It is at individual School’s discretion to determine if late arrival can be accommodated based on the student’s personal circumstances, the design of curriculum delivery, and equity and quality of student experience.
Reporting on students on campus
An Argos report is available to allow staff to report on students on campus. When the approved late arrival data fields are available this will be updated to include information about students arriving late etc. and this report will enable Admissions staff to identify where CAS records need to be annotated with a new latest arrival date.
