Your personal timetable will be available as soon as possible after you have registered with the University and chosen your modules online. There may be a small delay before you can see your personal timetable, but we aim to have all timetables available by the beginning of Week 1. Once available, they can be viewed via your student portal. In the meantime, we can provide a programme timetable so that you can view your teaching sessions in advance.

Lectures start from 8.30am on Monday 19th September. Unless your timetable indicates otherwise, tutorials will not start until Week 2 and where there is more than one tutorial, you will be advised which one you need to attend.
