Preferences and changing your timetable

Have a question?

Why can't I enter timetable preferences for some of my units?

You won’t have the option to enter preferences for a unit that is listed as read-only.

Why didn't I get my first preference on my timetable?

It’s not possible for all students to get their first preferences. You may not be assigned to your first preference class if it will cause clashes on your timetable, or many students have selected that class as a first preference and there isn’t room for everyone to be placed in the class.

What can I do if I don't get my class preference on my timetable?

If you didn’t get your preferred class and the class is full, you may be able to request a class swap.

What happens if I miss the timetable preferencing deadline?

If you miss the preferencing deadline, we’ll allocate you into classes. You’ll then be able to review and adjust your timetable once it’s available.

What happens if I enrol or change my units after timetable preferences close?

If you enrol or select new units after preferences close, you’ll be allocated a timetable for those units.

Can my timetable be changed after the deadline for making adjustments has passed?

Generally, your timetable can’t be changed after the deadline to make adjustments, which is the end of the second week of classes in Semesters 1 and 2.

If I withdraw from a unit and later re-enrol in the same unit, can I be allocated to the same class?

There’s no guarantee you’ll be allocated to the same class if you withdraw from a unit and later re-enrol in that unit.
