Clashes or classes already full
If your classes clash or you can't get into classes because they're already full, your options are:
- Choose a class on another time or day. You could try checking the University class timetable to get a calendar view of all your options.
- Watch the lecture on Learning Capture:
- check the online lecture schedule to see if your lecture is being recorded. Some faculties let you leave the lecture unallocated in your timetable. Others force you to include the clash.
- only lectures are recorded, so this won't help you sort out clashes with tutorials, pracs or other classes.
- Watch a lecture in real-time, or at a later stage, through Live Streaming. If available, this option will be indicated in Allocate+.
- Request to swap into a full class in Allocate+. You can make multiple swap requests for a class, whether or not you're allocated to another time-slot. You'll be notified by email if a swap is found. For further details, see fix timetable problems.
- Change your unit enrolment in WES:
- check the rules on compulsory, prerequisite and corequisite units first. This is in the unit description in the Handbook.
- changes to enrolment take about two hours to show up in Allocate+.
- If you want to request a clash or you need other type timetabling help, submit the online help request.
If a class isn't showing in your timetable, check your enrolment in WES.
View a timetable of all classes held
If your timetable options are complex, or you're having a lot of trouble working around clashes and full classes, you could try the class timetable. The class timetable allows you to see the scheduled times for all classes for all units on offer.
It lets you select your units and generate a draft timetable showing all the class options available. There's a calendar view that makes it much easier to see how you might make a timetable that will work for you.
You can't use the class timetable to enter your own class time preferences – you have to do that in Allocate+. The class timetable is just a handy way of working around difficult timetable problems.
