Following on from the title, I noticed that Newcastle University's Assessed Summer School dates fall within the Islamic month of Ramadan and extend into the Islamic festival being Eid. I also noticed that there is a policy of 100% attendance to all summer school sessions.
As a Muslim, I look forward to observing fasting in Ramadan and the festival that follows, Eid. I do not at all mind fasting whilst attending the summer school, however, I am concerned about missing out on observing Eid with my family. Especially as this year, Muslim A-Level students (like myself), will have a religious festival to look forward to after a long month fasting through revision and our A-Level examinations.
My question is, do you think Newcastle University will allow Muslim attendees to be excused from the sessions that could fall during the Islamic festival of Eid?
