Timetable changes

Introduction

Timetabling is a complex exercise and it is important that correct procedures are followed, in order to maintain the accuracy of class lists and ensure the smooth functioning of related processes such as enrolment and final grades.

In the week prior to commencement of Semester 1, and during the June examination period for Semester 2, all students are allocated an individual timetable, according to their unit of study selection. This timetable accounts for all classes including lectures, tutorials and seminars. The University's interactive student home page, MyUni, allows students to make timetable changes.

Steps to follow

  1. Log on to MyUni . MyUni allows students to amend their individual timetables, if required, to suit other commitments. On MyUni a student can 'block out' a period of up to one full day or two half days, so that no classes are scheduled for those times. For example, a student who works at a part-time job on Monday afternoons can block out that period on their personal timetable. MyUni will then change the timetable to fit in with this. (Please Note: The rescheduling process will reallocate class times for all units of study, rather than only the class that was originally in the blocked out time). Students can also request to be allocated, where possible, evening classes only.
  2. MyUni makes the changes and immediately shows the student a new timetable, which the student may either 'accept' or 'reject'. If the student accepts the new timetable it is printed out and becomes effective immediately. Timetable changes may only be made until the end of week 1 of semester.
  3. If the changes cannot be made on the web through MyUni (for example, where the student needs to block out more than one day), students should refer to the Business School Timetables web page for the availability and location of timetable change sessions which are organised by the SIO.

The rules

  1. The SIO will only make timetable changes to accommodate genuine requirements such as child care, sporting commitments, employment etc.
  2. The SIO cannot, and will not, allocate students to specific classes.
  3. The SIO cannot make a student's timetable the same as another student.
