Probably belongs in the international schools forum more so than here...
Took me a bit to figure out your question. I think you are doing a study abroad (semester?)
In my understanding, it depends on the number of classes and usually it is more lenient than in the US but that depends on WHICH school in particular and which professor. I have had people take attendance at the beginning of each class, others, not care, and others, kick those out who were late. So, go figure.
