Access your timetable

Find out when we release our timetables, and how to access the one for your course.

We publish your timetable on NOW at the start of each academic year. It's created by the timetabling team. You must complete your enrolment as a student at NTU. You'll then be able to continue accessing your timetable through NOW. Any issues with your student record, non-attendance and debt will affect your timetable.

Timetables are live documents and are subject to change. Remember to check your timetable daily throughout the academic year.

Timetable release dates for 2022/23

We aim to publish most undergraduate timetables as follows.

  • Year One students — 5 September 2022.
  • Returning students — 19 September 2022.

We're likely to issue all other non-undergraduate course timetables a week before the course start date. They'll be available to view on NOW.

There may be delays to creating your timetable in some circumstances. These include, but aren't limited to:

  • transferring courses
  • recently applying through clearing
  • not obtaining a placement, etc.
  • being referred in assessments. You might not have received the outcome of your referred assessments yet. If not, we can't assume it from the modules scheduled on your timetable. Please refer to School communications for the outcome of your referral assessment. We'll update your timetable in due course.

We know you want to see your timetable as soon as possible. We understand you may have work or caring responsibilities. However, we're unable to provide timetables any sooner than this as Confirmation and Clearing and the Resit Assessment Period can change the number of students coming to NTU. We have to rearrange things to make sure you have the right facilities to cater for your new class size. Other universities might provide their timetables earlier than we do. We're only releasing ours when we're confident there'll be minimal further changes.

We do our best to ensure accuracy in all personalised timetables we release to you. However, manual processes may mean there are a few occasions where we may not always get it right. If there are clashes or any other issues in your timetable 48 hours before your course starts, please contact the Timetabling Support team. We'll help resolve it for you.

If the information above doesn't answer your query, see our frequently asked questions.

Timetable FAQs

Why is the induction timetable on NOW different to the timetable on starting at NTU? 

Your School will be able to tell you where you can find the most up-to-date version of your induction timetable.

Will my timetable change between release and the first day of term? 

There is a possibility that your timetable will change between release and the first day of term.

We understand you may have childcare or work scheduled around your timetable. If any changes we make have an impact on this, please raise it with us. Follow the process we outline in the 'What do I do if I wish to change my timetable?' section.

Why is the timetable on the MyNTU App different to NOW?

Your phone may not be updating in real time. If in doubt, check on NOW. That's where you'll find the most up-to-date version, and that's the one you should follow.

How should I access Live Online sessions?

Within the 24 hours before the session is due to take place, we'll send a link to your email calendar. This will allow you to access the session online using Microsoft Teams with the required functionality.

You will also see a 'join now' link the NOW timetable. You can click this to access the session, but there will be limits on functionality.

What should I do if I have a Live Online session immediately before or after a face to face on campus session?

We have many touch-down points across the University. You can connect your own device or use one of our PCs. You could also book a space in the library and sign into your session there.

You can even use available teaching rooms on an ad-hoc basis for private study. If a room is available five minutes into the hour, you can use it until five minutes before the next booking.

You might not want to book a place in the library, visit a study lounge, or use an extended study area. If so, use the 'Is this room free?' function on your MyNTU app. You'll be able to look up what rooms are available nearby. You can also check when a room will become available, and for how long.

Some buildings also have display screens that show scheduled room bookings. You can easily see which rooms are available.

Why are the wrong modules showing on my timetable? 

You might not have received the outcome of your referred assessments yet. If not, we can't assume it from the modules scheduled on your timetable. Please refer to School communications for the outcome of your referral assessment. We'll update your timetable in due course.

A different module may appear on your timetable. This can happen if you've changed your options recently. This should only be temporary. We'll update it as soon as possible. If there are still issues with your timetable 48 hours before your course starts, contact our Timetabling Support team. We'll help resolve it for you.

There is a clash on my timetable. What should I do?

If there are clashes or any other issues still in your timetable 48 hours before the session starts, contact our Timetabling Support team. We'll help resolve it for you.

What do I do if I wish to change my timetable?

We take many factors into account when producing our timetables. It's unlikely we'll be able to change them. There would have to be strong extenuating circumstances.

You may have extenuating circumstances strong enough to necessitate change to your timetable. If so, discuss them with your Academic School. Please attend your scheduled classes until approved.

Why has my timetable changed?

There are many reasons we may adjust your timetable. It's imperative that you check it online every day. Examples include the following.

Room and / or time changes

We may have to move a teaching event due to unforeseen circumstances. These can include maintenance or making improvements to the suitability of the room.

Academic staff absence

We may have to postpone or rearrange a class if a tutor is absent. If this happens at short notice, you'll get an email or text message.

Sometimes, you'll unavoidably get this notification late — if it's about a 9 am start, for example. We'll let you know as soon as possible, though.

You should always keep your mobile phone contact details up-to-date. If you don't want to receive text messages about timetable changes, you need to opt out. Email Timetabling Support to let us know.

Additional events

Your course leader may wish to add an event to your timetable. This could be something like a placement lecture, for example.

Where can I find my examination timetable?

Your examination timetable will be available via NOW. You'll find it on your Personal Exam Timetable tab.

You may have other assessments during your studies, your school will inform you of these.
