|(b)||On days when assessments (e.g. quizzes or tests) are conducted during classes|
On any other occasions that tutor(s) or lecturer(s) deem as compulsory for students' attendance.
For the applications to be considered, they must be submitted with supporting documents to the respective Schools at least 7 working days in advance.
Application for leave on the following grounds will not be approved:
|•||Returning to home country during festive periods e.g. Chinese New Year, Hari Raya, etc.|
|• ||Participating in activities (in and outside campus) organized by student bodies during the hours when students are required to attend class|

Leave During Professional Internship/ Attachment
For leave during the professional internship (including medical/compassionate leave), students must submit the leave application or medical certificate via the online internship system, InPlace at https://inplace.ntu.edu.sg, and refer to the guidelines of the internship organisation, as well as the Career & Attachment Office instead.
Students who are absent on medical grounds on occasions (a) – (c) must submit a copy of their medical certificate (MC) to the School not later than 7 working days after the medical leave.
Students whose family/household member has acute respiratory illness, should stay at home to reduce the risk of community transmission, and submit a copy of the MC of the family/ household member instead by the same deadline.
Otherwise, they will be deemed as absent and will be given zero mark for any test or quiz or assessment component that they missed.
For absence from an examination due to illness, please click here for the submission procedures.
| •||Students are to retain their original MC for 1 year for verification when necessary.|
| •||The University only recognizes medical certificates issued in Singapore by Medical Practitioners registered with the Singapore Medical Council or Dental Officers registered with the Singapore Dental Council.|
Students will be granted leave in the event of the demise of an immediate family member (defined to include parents, parents-in-law, spouse, children, siblings and grandparents).
Leave of absence on compassionate ground will be granted within 7 days of the death, and inclusive of Saturday, Sunday and Public Holiday, and on the day of the funeral.
Students are to download and complete the short leave form, and submit this with the supporting document(s) to their home School within the stipulated timeframe.
If they had missed an assessment (e.g. quizzes or tests), they should additionally send a scanned copy of the supporting document(s) via email on the same day as the session missed. The course instructor may contact them to arrange for another session, if required.
Students must contact their School if they do not receive the outcome of their leave application via their NTU email address, after 5 working days.
