 Punctuality and Attendance

  • STUDENTS ARE REQUIRED TO ATTEND ON THE FIRST DAY OF THEIR COURSE.
  • Students must have a minimum of 80% attendance for your course/workshop in order to receive their qualification.

Classes will not be delayed to wait for latecomers, and teachers are not responsible for repeating work missed. Latecomers may be requested to wait until a suitable break in teaching before entering a class. Class hours can be varied at the discretion of the College’s Director without prior notice.
  • The college will be closed on all UAE public holidays. If a public holiday falls during your course, no extra days will be added to your course or reduction in fees given, unless the course is shorter than 5 days.

Awards of achievement are gained by the successful fulfilment of the criteria set out by the awarding body. The decision of the IMA awarding body Director is final in all such cases.
  • Students unable to understand or speak English will not be permitted to study on our courses.
  • Whilst training, as would be expected in the industry, teachers cannot be held responsible for information missed due to lateness or absence and cannot go back over subject matter already covered for individual students.  Some awarding bodies will not allow you to sit their examination if you have not achieved the correct level of attendance.

Assessments /Exams

  • Students can attend the first exam that follows their course free-of-charge.
