Sickness Absence

Sickness symbolUniversity regulations only require a Doctor´s certificate for continuous absence of more than 7 days, or in the case of exams, extension to work deadlines or recurrent illness. Sickness absence forms can only be completed if a Doctor has actively attended a person during their illness or has documentary evidence from another Doctor. If you are ill during an examination, you must see a Doctor the same day.
