In HELA contact teaching, an 80% attendance is required.

Additional absences are excused only in special cases, e.g. due to illness or some other pressing reason (personal matters e.g., parental leave, reservist military training, etc.).
Attendance applies to the whole course (i.e. lectures and exercises are not considered separately). Students are responsible for ensuring that they collect all the materials given out during the course.

Absences are agreed upon in advance in accordance with the instructions given by the teacher.

Participation in course meetings predetermined by the teacher (e.g. the first lecture of the course) is required in order to complete the course.

Employment, living in another town, minor subject studies (major subject is prioritized), or holiday trips are not mainly considered as reasons for absence.
