Teaching timetables

Timetables for spring and summer 2024 are now available.

The timetable for Autumn 2024 will be published by 29th August 2024.

There will be new instructions on how to access your Autumn timetable, and how to sign up to seminar groups. Information on this will be provided to all students, and the instructions below will be updated closer to the time.

How to get your personalised timetable

Here's how to get your personalised class schedule:

  1. Your teaching timetable for spring and summer is now available. If you have not yet enrolled, you can view the timetable using the timetable checker on the student portal. You will need to know the module code of the modules you are planning on taking, you can check these on our course pages. This is not a personalised timetable, and all group activities will be shown here. If you have enrolled, follow the instructions in point 2 below for a personalised timetable.
  2. Download the University App to access your personalised timetable which is populated with details of lectures and other full class activities for your modules, once you enrol. If you are not able to access the University App on your device, you can use a web browser.
  3. Next, you need to sign up for seminars and other small group sessions for your modules via Canvas, our Virtual Learning Environment, before they will appear on your personalised timetable. It is available from a week before the start of the semester. We encourage you to sign up for your group sessions as soon as you can because they fill up quickly. This guide to Canvas will help you get started.
  4. Once you have signed up for sessions on Canvas, they will appear in your personalised timetable on the University App the next day. Your timetable is now ready! Ensure you know when your first class is running as it may be on the first day of the semester.
  5. Your teaching timetable will describe the teaching activity, the date of the activity and the location for each of your modules. Your timetable indicates:
    • the module code for each activity
    • the type of teaching activity (e.g. lecture (L) or a tutorial (T))
    • the location of the class  (online is noted as “virtual” or a room on campus e.g. C. B23= Cottrell Building, B corridor, room 23).
  6. Finding your way around a new building can be tricky if you are new to our campus so allow plenty of time in case you get lost. Here is a link to our maps and floorplans to help you locate your teaching rooms.
  7. We try not to change timetables after they have been published, but this is sometimes unavoidable. Please check your timetable regularly.

You’re good to go!

If you have questions then use LiveChat on the portal or ask at the information desks on campus when you arrive.

How to access your timetable for activities and lectures.

Using the timetable

We gather information about modules running, registered student numbers, staff availability and the availability of suitably sized rooms before producing the timetable.

The room number on your timetable will tell you which building and floor the room is on, e.g. C.B23= Cottrell Building, B corridor, room 23.

Our campus maps are a useful resource for assisting you around the campus.  You can also view teaching room locations. The maps are also available on the University mobile app.

If your induction or class test clashes with a lecture, don’t worry. These classes are only running for that week and you can catch up with the lecture material via Canvas or from material from the lecture.

Our goal is to create a working timetable where all classes have suitably sized rooms and ensure that there are no clashes between compulsory modules. The wide range of optional modules available means it is not possible to guarantee that every possible combination will be available without clashes.

For other clashes, please contact your Faculty and they will be able to advise you of the most appropriate course of action.
