Step 3: Review/adjust your allocated timetable

Once class sorting and allocation is completed, you can review and adjust your timetable before classes begin.

Once you have been allocated a timetable you can review it via the 'timetable' tab. You can also select a class type from your list of enrolled subjects to see its allocation details and adjustment options.

The timetable can change throughout the year. If a change is made to one of your allocated classes you’ll receive an email to let you know. You should check MyTimetable regularly, as class times and venues may change and new classes could be added.

To find out when you will receive your allocated timetable, see timetable dates.

Log into MyTimetable

Reviewing your timetable

The button next to each class tells you its status, and whether you need to take any actions for that class:

StatusMeaningIcon
Allocated

This is the class you’re currently allocated to.

You can keep this allocation or click the bin icon to remove (deallocate) yourself from the class. Use this with caution! As soon as you deallocate yourself, the place becomes available for another student. If you change your mind, your original place may no longer be available.

 
Select

This means there are free places remaining. You can click the 'select' button to allocate yourself into this class.

You will be automatically removed from your previously allocated class, so make sure you are certain you wish to transfer places first.

 
Clash

This means that the class clashes with one of your other allocations.

Click the 'clash' button to see additional details.

 
Problem

This means that the class may be incompatible with your current timetable. For example, it may be right after another class on a different campus.

Click the 'problem' button to see relevant details.

 
Full This is a full class. You can submit a swap request if you wish to be allocated into it.

Comparing class availability

The overlay function lets you see the class options for a subject overlaid onto your allocated timetable. This can help you see whether that class fits into your current schedule.

  • Using the overlay function for an enrolled subject

    On the left side of the screen, click on a class from the list of your enrolled subjects. Click on the grid icon in the subject details pane to see the classes for that subject in calendar view.

    Click 'show timetable' to see your currently allocated classes overlaid on top.

  • Using the overlay function for a non-enrolled subject

    On the left side of the screen below the list of your enrolled subjects, you can search for a subject to see its class details. Click 'view' to see the classes for the subject in calendar view.

    Click 'show timetable' to see your currently allocated classes overlaid on top.

Requesting a swap

Swap requests are managed on a first-in, first-served basis and will not always be successful.

To request to join a full class, click on the blue unfilled heart icon next to the class. You must be allocated to another class before making a swap request and remain in this allocation while the request is pending.

Click the heart icon to submit a request. It will turn red to show that the request is pending.

If a matching swap request is found when you submit your swap request, the swap will be processed immediately and your timetable will be updated.

If there aren’t any available places to swap into, you’ll be added to a waitlist for that class and your swap will remain pending.

If a space becomes available before classes begin, you will be notified by email. Your allocation will be automatically updated and the previous one will be removed. If a place is not available by the time waitlists close, you will not be able to join the requested class.

To cancel the swap request, click the red heart and it will return to blue.

Please see timetable help if you are experiencing issues with your allocated timetable.

Deadlines

Your timetable must be finalised before classes start. If your subject’s adjustment period closes earlier, this will be indicated in MyTimetable in the subject's messages.

If you have unallocated classes remaining when the adjustment period closes, you will be automatically assigned to one of the remaining available classes a few days prior to semester starting. At this point, swap requests will also be switched off (any unsuccessful requests will be cancelled) and waitlists will be cleared. You are required to attend the class you are allocated to.

If compelling circumstances prevented you from finalising your timetable by the deadline, please submit a Timetabling Assistance form.

Viewing your finalised timetable

You can view your timetable in MyTimetable or you can sync it with your personal calendar.

The timetable bar has several features.

From left to right, these are:

  • Print timetable: you will need to be connected to a local printer.
  • Download timetable: As an Excel, text or iCal file.
  • Filter: For example, see only Semester 1 or Semester 2 subjects, or see only workgroups.
