Teaching Change Requests

We are introducing a new process to manage requests from academic staff to change the timetable.

The Teaching Change Request Form should now be used to request any change to the timetable. We are asking you to complete the form, so we can ensure we have all the necessary information required to process the requested change and to help streamline our teaching change request process for everyone.  

We will no longer process any teaching change requests received by email. 

What type of changes can be requested?​

There are several reason why a change to the timetable may be required. Below are a list of reasons for making a change to the timetable​ and example of what that means. 

​Reason For Change ​


Activity Swap​​

​​​I want to swap the day/time of tutorial group two with tutorial group three.


Adjust Activity Duration

​The activity has been scheduled for 3 hours and I requested the activity be 2 hours.


​Adjust Teaching Week Pattern

The activity is scheduled for all weeks of the Trimester. I'm no longer going to teach this activity in week 6 of the trimester.

Cancel Teaching Activity/ Condense Teaching Activities


This activity can be cancelled as it is no longer required/ I want to condense my teaching into fewer activities.


Change of Staff​​​

​The staff member teaching the activity has been changed.


Fewer Students

​There are fewer students enrolled on the module therefore the activity needs to be changed.


More Students

​There are more students enrolled on the module therefore the activity needs to be changed.


New/ Additional Teaching Activity Required

​A new or additional teaching activity is required for my module.


Room Capacity too Small

​The activity is too big for the allocated room and needs to be moved to a larger room.


​​​Room Capacity too Large



​The activity can be moved to a smaller room.


Room Unsuitable

​The room allocated for the activity is unsuitable and I am unable to deliver my teaching in the room.
