I don’t know what my Programme Code is.

Please refer to our guide on How to Find Your Timetable.

Do I attend all of the seminars/tutorials on my timetable?

Programme and Module timetables contain information on all activitites that relate to that module and or progamme of study

 

 

A Timetable is made up of the following:

 

Lectures

Seminars

Practicals

Tutorials

Class Tests

Drop in Sessions

Online delivery may not be on your timetable

For example,  a Nursing module may contain one lecture and 30 different seminar groups. You will only be allocated to one seminar group once you register as a student for the upcoming academic year.

You may not be required to attend all of the Seminars/Tutorials for a Module. You will be allocated a Seminar Group in due course after you have completed the registration process and this will be on your individual student timetable. All activities in your individual student timetable msut be attended (excluding drop in sessions) and your attendance will be recorded from the attendance swipe system colated within each teaching space.

When will Individual Timetables be available?

Individual student timetables for 18/19 should be available from the following:

New Students - week commencing 10th September 2018

 

An individual student timetable contains all main lectures as well as seminars where the programmme groups have been split into smaller student groups.  You will only see your own seminar groups on your individual timetable therefore your individual timetable will be different from other students on the same programme.

Completed Individual timetables are dependent on you having registered and chosen your optional choice modules. Once registered individual student timetables will be populated within 72 hours of registration, if you have not chosen your optional modules yet, please contact your Schools programme administration team. If you have not registered we are unable to populate your timetable until you do.

 As soon as Seminar Group allocations and all optional Modules have been allocated you will see these appear on your timetable. These groups are constructed within the schools and not by students, no input is required.

 

Please note: We try not to make changes to times of classes when published but on occasion they cannot be avoided.

There are classes on my Timetable for Modules that I did not choose.

All of the available modules appear on the Programme and Module Timetables, including optional modules that you have not personally chosen.

 

Individual Timetables contain only Seminar Groups and all optional Modules that that you selected. These groups are constructed within the schools and not by students, no input is required.  If you have modules within your individual timetable that you should not be attending please advise the Timetabling and Student Systems Team within Registry.  Email timetabling@gcu.ac.uk
