Your welcome timetable for your first week will be available via the Timetables button on the homepage of StudentCentral once you have completed online enrolment. This will show your welcome events for your course and will also show your enrolment activities as well as the Vice Chancellor talks for your campus.
Your teaching timetable is still being worked on and may not be complete until the end of your first week of welcome activities. Sessions may be added to your timetable once teaching groups have been allocated. This takes place once all students have enrolled in person and final numbers are known. Please check your timetable regularly for updates and we strongly recommend reviewing it just before teaching starts.
Your timetable is personalised to you and will only display your teaching and enrolment events. Your contact hours (the amount of hours you are expected to attend) include your lectures, seminar groups, workshops and tutorials etc.
Undergraduate students: Full-time students are expected to spend 35 hours a week studying. Teaching times vary between courses, but for each module you will find a module descriptor that should outline how much time you should be dedicating to independent study and how much time will be spent in lectures/workshops/seminars. To view the module descriptor, navigate to your enrolled modules on student central. Most modules will have at least 44 hours of contact time across the entire module which can include lectures, workshops, seminars and tutorials. In principle a 10 credit module will require 100 hours, 20 credits 200 hours and so on. Independent study may be at least 75% of this total, meaning 25-30 hours of private study every week in addition to lectures and seminars. This will vary between students.
