Semester One timetable now available


Your personalised academic timetable for 2020-21 will be available on your online student record approximately three working days after you complete the registration process. 

The timetable can be viewed on the Academic Timetable website:

Your timetable is also available on your personal calendar through Office 365:

There will be some adjustments to the timetable over the next few weeks while students finalise their module choices. We’ll keep changes to an absolute minimum, but we do recommend you check your timetable regularly in case any adjustments have been made. The semester one timetable will settle after the initial weeks of the teaching period.

If you have any questions about your timetable, your departmental timetable officer will be able to advise you:

This timetable is accurate based on our current planning for the coming academic term.  Our priority is to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all our students, staff and the wider community. We will keep our teaching provision under review in order to operate in line with Welsh Government rules and guidance on COVID-19.  Naturally, should there be any major changes in public health advice as the pandemic progresses, we will notify you of any further adaptations as soon as we possibly can.
