You can access a personalised timetable at the start of each semester with the location, time and duration of all your tutorials, lectures and labs.
We will be launching a new timetable process and system, Sydney Timetable, for Semester 1 2021. Designed to be easy to use and lead to fewer clashes, the system has a range of new features to help improve your timetabling experience. For example, you will be able to make a range of new adjustments to your timetable such as requesting a class swap.
You will be able to select preferences for your Semester 1 2021 timetable using the new timetabling system from 18 January 2021. All preferences entered before the deadline will be treated equally.
Make sure you check these pages in November/December for more information on the new system.
Before the start of each semester, you will be allocated a personal timetable for the semester based on the units of study you've selected. This will be available on the personal timetable website.
There are three stages to getting your final timetable:
Once your timetable is available, log in to the personal timetable website and select ‘View current timetable’. You can view your timetable either as a table in classic view or as a list in schedule view.
Some units of study may not be centrally timetabled, meaning they are scheduled by your school or department and can't be accessed through the personal timetable website. In these instances you can contact your unit of study coordinator (listed in the unit of study descriptions in your handbook) for assistance.
If you need to plan ahead, you can use our list of unit of study timetables to get an idea of where and when classes might be scheduled. Search using the unit of study code. Class times and days are subject to change until the release of your personal timetable.
If your timetable needs to accommodate a student disability requirement, please contact Disability Services before the start of each semester.
Before timetables are released, you can enter preferences for your timetable through the personal timetable website. These preferences can’t be guaranteed but will be taken into account when assigning you to classes. You can preference online and on campus options for your units. Check your unit on the 2020 Unit of Study Timetables page to see what options are available.
Login and select 'Enter preferences for next semester'. Here you can:
When you select a class as a preference, a small weighting is added to that class. This will increase the chance that you are assigned to this class.
If you block off times, the weighting for any classes during that time is reduced by a small amount, to make it less likely you’ll be allocated to that class.
When timetables are allocated, the system will first prioritise:
Your preferences will then be taken into account.
All preferences entered by the deadline are treated equally, however, it is not possible for all students to get their preferences. You may not be assigned to your preferred class if it will cause clashes on other students’ timetables, or many students have selected that class as a preference and there isn’t room for everyone to be placed in the class.
