Why can I not see my timetable?

The following things need to have occurred in order for your personalised timetable to be visible:

You need to be fully registered for the 2018/19 academic year

  • First year students must make sure that they have fully enrolled in order to view their personalised timetables.
  • All students must be registered on a module/assigned a group – students can check this via their Faculty office
  • If you are in the process of transferring courses or modules, there may be a delay in your timetable becoming visible.

If you are still unable to see your timetable following enrolment, please complete the timetabling enquiry form.

Additional Information

  • The Academic Calendar comprises two versions -  one for Undergraduate students and one for Postgraduate students;
  • The Postgraduate calendar applies to many, but not all taught postgraduate programmes.  Please consult your Programme Handbooks for the detailed schedule;
  • Graduate+ weeks (employability activity) will comprise a range of employability and professional development activities across campuses;
  • Most courses have an ‘inter-semester’ week (wc: 29 January) – Examples of what this might comprise includes: professional development and employability activity, trips and/or work based visits, Moodle on-line activity, independent learning and/or group projects and presentations;
  • Assessment is NOT limited solely to the weeks indicated, but these weeks have been identified as they may typically be utilised for exams, assignment hand in dates and other assessment.
  • As a Tier 4 student, if you are using the academic calendar to determine when you can work full-time it is essential that you first visit Working During Your Studies as the regulations surrounding the work Tier 4 students can do are very strict, and the penalties for breaching these rules, even accidentally, are severe.

Please note a minority of courses follow slightly different academic calendar weeks, for example those that are heavily placement based on those starting in months other than September. If your course is different, this will be made clear in your Programme Handbook.
