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


You can now see an overview of scheduled units in Sydney Timetable for Semester 2 to help you plan your unit selections. These are provisional and may change. This is a preview page, so won’t display your personalised choices at this stage.

From 21 June you'll be able to enter preferences for the semester based on the units of study you've successfully enrolled in. For most students, you'll be able to log in to access this in Sydney Timetable

There are three stages to get your final timetable:


Enter your class preferences before timetables are released. This step is optional; you'll still be allocated to classes even if you don't enter preferences.


Access your timetable in Sydney Timetable once it's released.


You'll be able to review and adjust your timetable up until the end of Week 2 of semester.

Once your timetable is available, log in to Sydney Timetable and select the ‘Timetable’ tab. You can view your timetable in grid view or list view, print a hard-copy, and sync it with your calendar.

Units that aren't scheduled in Sydney Timetable

Some units won't appear on your timetable.

For example, many OLE units are delivered online for you to take at your own pace. If you don't see an OLE unit on your timetable, check the unit outline to see how it's delivered. Check the weekly schedule section to see if there are any attendance requirements.

Some units managed locally by your faculty or school also won't appear. These include:

  • certain project, placement, dissertation and capstone units
  • all courses in the University of Sydney School of Medicine 
  • some courses in the University of Sydney School of Dentistry.

Check your unit of study Canvas page once it's available to find out more. You can also contact your unit of study coordinator (listed in the unit of study descriptions in your handbook).

Allocation status

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

  • Allocated – an activity (for example, lecture or tutorial) has been allocated to your timetable.
  • Pending – you’ve selected a preference, 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 activities

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

Select an activity 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.

Click the blue icon next to each of your enrolled units for more information about the unit.

Activity status

A status appears in brackets next to each activity in the ‘Enrolment’ box. This tells you about your allocations and any actions to take.

The statuses are:

  • Preference – you can enter your preferences
  • Adjust – you are allocated to a class, but you can still change it
  • 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.

If you see 'Select', it means this activity doesn't clash with another class, and you can select it during the review and adjust period. 

Read-only and single option units


A read-only unit means you can't enter preferences or adjust classes. For example, this may occur if you’re studying pharmacy, veterinary science, dentistry, or some project units, and you have a specific timetable you’ll need to follow.

Once the deadline to review and adjust your timetable has passed, all units will be read-only.

Single option

If a unit is only offered as a single class and there aren’t alternative options for it, we'll allocate you to that class and you'll see the message ‘single option only’.

Adjustments and access for students with a disability

Please contact Inclusion and Disability Services before the start of each semester if you’d like help arranging adjustments or access for your timetable. If you are affected by long-term circumstances, such as a recurring medical condition, we encourage you to register with Inclusion and Disability Services. By registering you will gain access to the adjustments and services to support you to succeed in your studies.

In your timetable you can also click on the venue hyperlink to access information on the accessibility of each venue, including details on accessible equipment, hearing augmentation/visual impairment support and building features such as wheelchair accessible entrances, bathrooms and lifts available.
