On Tuesday 6 January, Union Council met and voted to call a referendum. You can read the original motion here. The amended referendum questions are: 

  1. Should UCL prevent students who attend less than 70% of teaching from taking part in assessment?
  2. Should UCL monitor the attendance of all students in order to enforce this requirement?

At this meeting, you can find out more about what the proposals mean for you and debate the pros and cons of the system, whether the £600,000 allocated to implement the policy could be better spent elsewhere and anything else you’d like to discuss in an open forum.

What’s does a UCL referendum mean?

Referenda take place so that you can vote to decide what we should do on important issues and areas. Just like a referendum held by the government, it’s a question put out to all students where you can decide what our collective position is on important issues. In this case, the results would also inform UCL of your feelings about the changes.

Referendum Voting for the referendum will open at 12.00 on Thursday 1 March and close at 12.00 on Tuesday 6 March

Results will be announced on Tuesday 6 March 2018
