How timetabling works

Class Timetable

Who needs to use Class Timetable

The Class Timetable shows when all units are timetabled. It can help you choose units to avoid clashes and to plan your class times around other constraints, eg. work. We release the class timetable in early  October to coincide with re-enrolment.

Students who have more complex timetabling needs will benefit from using Class Timetable. The timetable within a year level and within a faculty will, in most cases, be clash-free. You may benefit most from using Class Timetable if you:

  • have failed units and need to take units spanning several year levels where clashes are more likely
  • are doing a double degree and have a wide variety of cross-faculty unit options
  • have limited on-campus availability, perhaps due to work commitments. Check Class Timetable before enrolling in units and again before using Allocate+ to select your class times.

Who doesn't need to use Class Timetable

First  year undergraduates will not need to use Class Timetable. At this stage, you will generally use Allocate+ to enter preferences after enrolling. Some faculties will do this for you.

Off-campus students don't need to check the timetable in Class Timetable, unless you have an on-campus component, (e.g. weekend school), as advised by your faculty.

When to use Allocate+

Allocate+ opens on specific dates so you can enter your preferred class activity times (tutorials, labs, lectures etc.). After closing, it sorts the preferences to give you a workable timetable, and reopens so you can make adjustments. Some faculties can't allow much timetable flexibility and create your timetable for you.

Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences students do not need to enter preferences in Allocate+ as your faculty will allocate all activities to your timetable. See Parkville timetable information.

Codes and abbreviations

It's important to understand the codes and abbreviations used in the Handbook, Class Timetable and Allocate+.
