Semester 1 2014 Timetable

The 2014 Semester 1 Timetable is now available.

Change request spreadsheets are available for all Schools. Timetabling Policy and Procedures states that changes to the Published Timetable can only be made in response to exceptional circumstances, which include:

  1. unexpected staff illness, resignation etc
  2. a change to sessional staff availability for unforeseeable reasons
  3. changes necessitated by an unexpected increase/decline in enrolment numbers
  4. a scheduled location becomes a health or safety hazard
  5. a unit is removed from offering
  6. reasonable adjustments to accommodate students with special needs
  7. other unforeseeable and extraordinary circumstances outside the control of the Faculty, School or organisational unit.

Should any change requests be made, they must include the reason for the change on the Change Request spreadsheet.

Where the reason for the change is not in accordance with the circumstances listed above, the change request must also include:

  • an explanation of why the change was not identified in the Draft/Provisional Timetable phase; and
  • accompanying written (email) approval from the Head of School, otherwise Timetabling staff will be unable to consider actioning these changes.

Where change is approved:

  • the change will be factored into vacant slots in the timetable.
  • consequential changes to classes already scheduled will not be made in order to accommodate such changes.

If a post publication request is actioned, the School/organisational unit is responsible for advising affected students via email and/or other notification.
