Term times and key dates

Check term times, exam dates, assessment boards and public holidays with the University's academic calendar. 

Individual student timetables

Your individual timetable will be available to view via the Individual Student Timetable or (IST) or via your own calendar if you have set up your iCal Feed.

Please note, your timetable may be subject to minor amendments and you should check your timetable on a regular basis for changes to locations and timings.

View your IST via the link below, using their GCU username and password to log in. Please do not try to login using your email address, it must be your GCU username.

If you have any queries relating to the timetable, please contact Timetabling and Student Systems via email on timetabling@gcu.ac.uk.


  • Individual Student Timetables are only available to students who have registered for 2019/20. If you have not registered yet, you will not be able to access Celcat Calendar, so please refer to the main Programme timetables.
  • Your IST is weekly and not all modules run each week, therefore please check each week.
  • Your IST is updated in real time as changes to your timetable occur, including changes to locations, or to seminar group allocations. 
  • It is vital that you check your IST on a regular basis or subscribe to iCal feed.
  • If you have queries regarding your optional modules, please contact your school office.


In addition to your IST, we offer an iCal feed, to allow you to get access your GCU timetable via your smartphone or mobile device. 

Modern versions of client calendars such as MS Outlook, iCal, Google Calendar as well as calendars on smart and mobile devices, such as Andriod and iOS have the ability to subscribe to CELCAT calendar feeds. Once you've subscribed you can forget about the service - you don't need to manually refresh the data or reconfigure your calendar for each new academic year. 

Please note: You must use your GCU email address to subscribe.

Returning students 

Once registration opens, you can register your intent to return to guarantee an individual student timetable before teaching begins. Please note: Progression to the next academic year is subject to ratification by Assessment Board and in line with GCU regulations.

New students

Your individual student timetable will be made available one week prior to induction week. Please refer to the programme and module timetables until you are registered.
