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 your course timetable

UniTimetables is the University's online timetabling system. It lets you 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 stores the teaching timetable for hundreds of courses, some of which have very similar names and other details, it helps to be really precise about what you are searching for.
    • If you're looking for the teaching timetable for your course, it's best to search by course code. This is because your course code is unique whereas another course might have a very similar name. You can find your course code in MyRecord, under ‘My Studies’ > 'My course details' if you are a current student, or under 'Application(s) if you haven't yet registered
    • If you prefer to search by course title, you'll also find the official title of your course in MyRecord. When searching by name, it also also 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 that in MyRecord too!
  • Different levels of study have different timetables. So make sure you’re looking for the year that’s applicable to you:
    • 'Level 0' = a foundation year
    • 'Level 4' = the first year of an Undergraduate degree course
    • 'Level 5' = the second year of an Undergraduate degree course
    • 'Level 6' = the third year of an Undergraduate degree course
    • 'Level 7' = a Postgraduate course
  • Courses taught at Medway are marked MED, to distinguish them from those at MEDWAY
  • Advent is the first Semester/Trimester of the academic year, while Easter is the second Semester/Trimester and Trinity the third Trimester

2. MyTimetable: for your individual student timetable

Once you have registered, your Course team can 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

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.
