Due to COVID-19, we've made some changes to our Semester 2 2020 dates which will impact timetables. For most students, your units will be held in either:
If you are enrolled in Semester 2 Early units, you'll be able to request assistance with your timetable for these units between 28 July and 14 August.
If you’re enrolled in Semester 2 units, you'll be able to request assistance with your timetable for these units between 18 August and 6 September.
If you have exceptional circumstances, such as if you’ve been impacted by a COVID-19 travel related ban (including international or domestic) or if you’ve made changes to your enrolment or unit of study selection, you are eligible to request a change to your timetable after 6 September.
If you have commitments that mean you can’t attend your classes, you should first try to customise your timetable.
If you can’t change your timetable it's often because the class you want to join is full or the changes you want to make would cause a clash.
If you have special circumstances and would like to make a change to your timetable, you can submit a request for assistance with your timetable. Be aware that we will not be able to place you in a full class or deliberately create a clash.
Attending classes is an important part of your study at the University and we will only attempt to change your timetable if your circumstances are considered to be exceptional.

The deadline to request assistance with your Semester 2 timetable has now passed. Timetables are final from 6 September.

For your request to be considered, you will need to provide a short description of your circumstances and why you need to have your timetable changed. Include the timetable change that you would like made.
