Academic Year 2021/22 Trimester 1


For Academic Year 2021/22 all Module and Programme Leaders are requested to confirm and supply detailed teaching information for Trimester 1 to enable an accurate individual timetable for students to be created.

A copy of the guidance for Teaching in 2021/22 sent out by Alyson Tobin on 25th March can be found here​.​

Trimester 1 Draft Module Timetable 

The Trimester 1 Modules-draft timetable will be available here for review from Monday 19th July 2021.

Due to the constraints placed on timetabling for Trimester 1, by the current circumstances, please note that our main priority must be processing changes where there is an error.  The types of requests we will process, fall within below categories:

  • Error – Clash for students (i.e. student unavailable due to another timetabled activity)
  • Error – Clash for staff member (i.e. staff unavailable due to another teaching commitment)
  • Error – Wrong staff member attached to teaching activity
  • Error – Incorrect activity duration (too long or too short)
  • Error – Incorrect day or time (only where this was previously defined)
  • Error – Too many activity groups (due to decrease in student numbers)
  • Error - Not enough activity groups (due to increase to student numbers)

It is important that we give as much on-campus experience to our students as possible.  If having reviewed the draft timetable programme/module teams wish to add additional activities please liaise with your School Head of Learning & Teaching so that they can be prioritised appropriately, mindful of the space constraints on all three sites at 1m social distancing.  Such requests will be dealt with after all errors have been resolved, and only where they can be accommodated without unpicking and rescheduling draft events.

Please check the timetable information and send any change requests to your school timetabling administrator by no later than Friday 23rd July. This is to allow timetabling colleagues to make any updates, before the module timetable is published to students.

We are aiming to publish the Module Timetable to students and staff the week commencing 9th August 2021.
