  • Kielikeskuksen kursseilla on vähintään noin 75 %:n läsnäolovelvollisuus oppitunneilla. Tästä voidaan joustaa perustellusta syystä tai kurssin luonteesta johtuen. Itseopiskeluna suoritettavien tai vastaavien kurssien lähitapaamisissa voidaan kuitenkin edellyttää 100 %:n läsnäoloa.
  • Allmän praxis på Språkcentrums kurser är en närvaroplikt på 75 % och utförande av kursens uppgifter. Man kan vara flexibel med detta på grund av en motiverad orsak eller på grund av kursens natur. På självstudiekursernas eller motsvarandes möten kan man emellertid förutsätta full närvaro.
