Your online timetable is kept up-to-the-minute with any changes. Timetables are subject to change, and the online timetables always take precedence over downloaded and printed copies. You should check your timetable regularly to ensure you have most up-to-date information.
Returning students: You will need to have re-enrolled online for the term, to access your timetable. If you are experiencing issues enrolling, please contact our team at the Student Hub.
New students: You will be able to access your timetable once you have completed your IT induction. Please ensure that you have completed the Registration process to receive the link to your IT Induction.
If you are experiencing issues enrolling, please contact our team at the Student Hub.
I’m having trouble accessing my timetable
Access to your timetable is dependent upon your enrolment status, if you are having trouble accessing your timetable please contact the Student Hub team who can check your enrolment status.
I’ve changed programme or module but my timetable hasn’t updated yet.
Because of checks that need to be made it can take up to three working days from a change request being accepted, to the changes publishing out on the timetables.
If your change was agreed more than three working days ago, please contact the Student Hub who can look into this for you.
I have access to my timetable, but I think a class could be missing.
Our Timetabling Team assess each timetable to make sure you have been registered for all the modules you are required to take based on your programme and level of study.
However, if you think there may be a class missing you should contact the Student Hub.
The core teaching week is Monday to Friday 9am to 7pm. Weekend and classes up to 9pm are agreed for specific programmes. All classes will finish ten minutes before the nominal end time to allow staff and students to move from one class to another. Lunch breaks will usually be staggered between 12pm and 2pm.
Wherever possible, Wednesday afternoons from 1pm will be free from teaching on Undergraduate programmes, to allow you to participate in extra-curricular activities. This is not always possible especially with language teaching which has a complicated curriculum.
What are the timetabling guidelines that have been used to construct my timetable?
We aim to apply the following guidelines to timetables:
You will normally have a maximum of four consecutive hours of teaching in any one day
You will normally have a maximum of six hours of total teaching in any one day
If possible, gaps in excess of three hours between classes will be avoided
If possible, at least two teaching events will be scheduled in any one day
It should be noted that the particular requirements of some programmes e.g. retaking modules may mean that any of the above cannot be applied in certain circumstances.
Will my timetable change during the year?
It is important that you regularly check your timetable online as it displays a weekly view and teaching activities can vary week to week.
We try to minimise changes wherever possible as we recognise this can be disruptive. However, due to last minute room or lecturer availability, occasionally classes may have to be altered.
Can I change the times of my classes?
You must always follow your programme timetable and only attend classes you have been officially registered for. Core classes for your programme cannot be changed.
In most cases, programmes are of a full-time nature and therefore the expectation is that you will be free from outside commitments during the normal teaching week and classes can therefore take place at any time within this.
You can change elective options at the beginning of term please see below for more details.
If you have a disability, long term health condition or caring responsibilities that affect your availability and are concerned about any of the timings of your classes please contact the Student Hub.
Why can timetable clashes arise?
We endeavour to schedule all students into the modules they want to take, but in certain situations this may not always be possible.
For example, those who are repeating modules from a previous term/level or those who joined the university with credit from outside and are therefore taking modules in a different sequence, may experience a greater likelihood of a timetable clash.
The structure of programmes and modules also varies across the University and some are more complex to timetable than others. The wide range of elective and language modules available on some programmes means it is not possible to guarantee that every possible combination will be available.
Core modules always take priority over elective modules and alternative elective choices may be used instead. It is important that you rank your alternative electives in order of preference so that we can correctly allocate you to your next choice.
Can I add an extra module to my timetable?
Depending upon your programme, most students undertake a total of 60 credits per term. If you did not pass modules from a previous level, you may be allowed to take up to 80 credits in any one term, although this may mean an increased chance of module clashes.
If your total credits are less than 60, it may be because you are required to retake modules which you did not pass at the previous level of study. In this situation, you would not be permitted to add modules and must follow the University progression regulations.
If you need extra advice about this please contact your course tutor or The Student Hub.
If you are a Study Abroad or Exchange student you might be able to add an extra module, as long as the total credit load doesn't exceed 60 credits per term. To add a module to your current timetable, please send a request in writing to the International Partnerships Team at [email protected].
Can I change my elective modules?
Students on some programme years can change elective modules before the start of the new term providing the new choice does not make a clash and there are places available in the new module. You can see more information and a full list of elective modules and choices here.
If you are a Study Abroad or Exchange student you cannot complete this form, instead you will need to ask your home institution to send a request in writing to the International Partnerships Team at [email protected]. Please note that modules changes can only be made for academic reasons.
