Class timetables

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.

Getting your timetable

New timetable system has launched in 2021

We have launched 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 are now able to select preferences for your Semester 1 2021 timetable using the new timetabling system. All preferences entered before the 2 February deadline will be treated equally. Read the information on these pages to find out more about the new system.  

A few weeks before the start of each semester, you will be allocated a personal timetable for the semester based on the units of study you've successfully enrolled in. This will be available in Sydney Timetable. Sydney Timetable is the system you use to enter preferences, review and make adjustments to your timetable. You are now able to enter your preferences in Sydney Timetable.

There are three stages to getting your final timetable:

  1. Enter your class preferences before timetables are released.
  2. You will be able to access your timetable in Sydney Timetable
  3. Review and adjust your timetable up until the end of Week 2 of the semester.

Once your timetable is available, log in to Sydney Timetable and select the ‘Timetable’ tab. You can view your timetable in either grid view or list view.

Timetable dates

Event or deadline Date

Some units of study may not be centrally timetabled, meaning they are scheduled by your school or department and can't be accessed through Sydney Timetable. In these instances you can contact your unit of study coordinator (listed in the unit of study descriptions in your handbook) for assistance. To see a calendar view of key dates for each session, visit the session calendars page.

Disability requirements

If your timetable needs to accommodate a student disability requirement, please contact Disability Services before the start of each semester. If you are affected by long-term circumstances, such as a recurring medical condition, we encourage you to register with Disability Services. By registering you will gain access to the adjustments and services to support you to succeed in your studies.

Location of units

Due to the ongoing impacts of COVID-19 and travel restrictions, many units of study will continue to be available for remote learning (online delivery) during 2021. Make sure you check the location code when choosing your units of study in Sydney Student. Find out more about selecting units in Sydney Student and the codes used.

If you are unable to travel to campus to attend classes, you need to select units where the location is ‘RE’, meaning Remote. This means your timetable will then only display remote classes (delivered online).

If you choose a unit with the wrong location, find out how to change your units of study. You will need to make any changes to your units by the deadline to add a unit of study for the session.  

Key features of Sydney Timetable

Learn how to get started in Sydney Timetable with the video below. 

The homepage of Sydney Timetable provides an overview of your enrolment details and the allocation status for each of your units of study.

Allocation status

A summary of your current enrolment details, including all your activity allocations, is in the top left-hand corner of the homepage.

A screenshot showing the allocation status screen
  • Allocated – an activity type (for example, lecture or tutorial) has been allocated to your timetable.
  • Pending – you’ve made an action on an activity type, but the decision is pending. You do not need to take any further action.
  • Not Allocated – you need to take an action (for example, enter a preference).

Enrolment details and activity types

Your current enrolment details are shown in the ‘Enrolment’ box. Each unit of study will show different ‘activity types’, which are included in the subject. Examples of activity types include lectures, tutorials, workshops and laboratories.

Select an activity type to see the list of all the available classes. Additional details such as the class venue and time will also appear.

If you want to see the available classes for a unit of study you’re not enrolled in, you will need to use the search bar to find the unit.

The blue icon next to each of your enrolled units provides further information about the unit of study.

Activity status

A status appears in brackets next to each activity type in the ‘Enrolment’ box. You should check each activity status as it provides information about your allocations and any actions you may need to take.

The different activity statuses are:

  • Preference – you need to enter your preferences 
  • Adjust –you are allocated to a class, but you can still change it
  • Select –you need to allocate yourself to a class
  • Read only – you’re already allocated to a class because there’s only one option or the period of time to make changes to your timetable is finished
