Compulsory Attendance

In contrast to regulations at school, there is no general compulsory attendance at university.

Whether attendance is checked or not depends on the type of class. While it is still acceptable to skip a lecture in urgent cases, you should consider your attendance at other classes including introductory courses very carefully. If you are absent too often, you may not be able to obtain credits for the course.

If you are unable to attend due to illness, it is often possible to watch lectures and seminars via the FAU video portal
