How will I know how my child is doing academically?

The only way to find out how your child is doing academically is to ask them.  UK universities are not permitted to release information about academic progress, attendance or anything else to any third party without that student’s express consent, and this includes parents. Examination results are issued regularly to every student on a taught course – usually after the end of each semester. Undertaking a degree is challenging and even A* students can receive poor grades at first while they are adjusting.

At NCIUL , every student is allocated a personal tutor, who will be available to discuss academic or personal concerns on a one-to-one basis, and will, should be consent given from the student, be willing to discuss progress with a parent or guardian.
