Timetable coding system

If you have created your timetable using the timetable generator you will have a record of the information.

If you have a module clash, you need to change your module selection, or speak to the module co-ordinators.

Module Code

Using the example RELU911, the first 3 characters represent the subject area, so REL is Religious studies.

The 4th character represents the level of study, so U is undergraduate. P is for postgraduate.

The 5th character can sometimes represent location, e.g. S for Singapore, M for Muscat, H for Hong Kong.
