Note: the above dates apply to most subjects. Some class registration opening/closing times may vary. Check with your Faculty if you are unsure of your subject’s registration times.

Undergraduate students: more than one opening time may apply to you if you are enrolled in undergraduate subjects for multiple year levels. Make sure you check the opening time for each subject year level.

An intensive subject takes place over a short time frame rather than being taught regularly over a semester.

If you are enrolled in an intensive subject, refer to the relevant study period to find out when class registration opens for your subject:

2. Log in to your personal timetable

To register into classes for the semester, log in to my.unimelb.

  1. Select 'My timetable' in the Student Admin box. All available tutorials, seminars, and lectures for each of your subjects will appear.
  2. Select your desired classes.
  3. Save your selection.

When you log in to your personal timetable, you may find that you have automatically been placed into single sitting classes (classes with no repeats). You will be required to attend at these times.

If you are enrolled in graduate study, you may not be able to self-manage your timetable and will be allocated to specific classes.

This video explains the difference between subject enrolment and class registration.

Plan your preferred timetable

Before class registration opens, you can plan your preferred timetable using the online ‘University Timetable (SWS)’, which shows all proposed classes, days, and times for each subject. Some proposed classes in the University Timetable may not be available when class registration opens, so use the University Timetable as a guide only.
