To make it easy for you to know where you need to be and when, we provide timetabling information in two different ways. 

1. UniTimetables: for course timetables

UniTimetables is the University's online timetabling system and allows you to view the teaching timetables for all modules and courses based at Canterbury and Medway campuses, including online classes but excluding placements. UniTimetables is updated with the timetable for the next academic year each summer (typically by the start of August).

As UniTimetables holds the teaching timetable for hundreds of courses, some of which have very similar details, it helps to be really precise with your search terms.

  • If you're looking for the teaching timetable for your course, it's usually best to search by course code. This is because your course code is unique whereas another course might have a very similar title. You can find your course code in MyRecord, under the ‘My Studies’ tab, and then ‘View course details’
  • If you prefer to search by course title, you'll find the official title of your course on your Blackboard (if you're already a student) or on your offer letter or under the 'Applications' tab in MyRecord (for new students). It also also helps with this type of search if you 'Select A Department' to filter the potential results. By 'Department', UniTimetables means the School or Centre that teaches your course or select ‘BA/BSc Combined Honours if you’re studying a combined course. If you're unsure of your School/Centre, you'll find it in MyRecord under the 'My Studies' tab, then 'View course details'.

Remember, UniTimetables displays all the teaching activities associated with a course or module; this means that if your modules are taught in groups (as is often the case for seminars), you will see details of them all on UniTimetables – not just those you need to attend. UniTimetables therefore won't provide you with a personalised view of the timetable (for that, you need MyTimetable) - so you may need additional information (e.g. which modules you're studying, if you are on a course with optional elements; or which group you're in if some or all of your modules are taught in multiple groups) to work out exactly where and when you need to be.

2. MyTimetable: for individual student timetables

Once you have registered, your Course Team are able to start preparing your personalised timetables (otherwise known as your 'individual student timetable' or 'IST'). You access your personalised timetable via MyTimetable.

With MyTimetable, you can also:

  • link your student timetable to the calendar app of your choice (such as Outlook, Apple, Yahoo, Google and others), so you can see your course commitments alongside your personal events in one place.
  • automatically see events that you have booked via MyBookings, e.g. time in the dark room, alongside your lectures, seminars, practicals and other taught activities.
  • opt in to receive email alerts, to any email address of your choice, if a change is made to any activity on your IST that is due to happen within the next 7 days.
  • find and save other teaching events, e.g. if you are invited to attend a lecture that is not for your course.

MyTimetable user guide

Please note that individual student timetables are not available for short courses and some courses with external professional requirements, but instead your course team will supply you with all necessary timetabling information. However, if your course isn't able to provide you with a personalised timetable you can go to MyTimetable to build your own. Simply use the 'Find timetable' function to choose modules and/or courses and then select the activities that you should be attending. Once you're happy with your timetable, you can save and subscribe to it using your preferred calendar app.



You are able to request a room or space that is not being used for teaching through MyBookings. This may be for individual or group study, society activities or events or to reserve a space to conduct your take-home exam.
