New Student Timetable - Help please!!!

University Navigation

    • Thread Starter

    I recently logged into the student portal to find my timetable as I am a new student I honestly don't understand it. I put all my course details in and the timetable has so much with stuff overlapping, for example: I'd get a lesson and a lecture overlap at some point. I'm not sure what this exactly means as I know me can't be in both places. Can someone please help me understand this?

    Your best bet is to go to the student office and see if they can help.

    I will! It's because I'll be traveling everyday so want to make sure I'm in the right place at the right time! Thank you for the reply

    Hi, I'm a third year student at the University of Greenwich I might be able to give you some tips on understanding your timetable.
    Below is an link to how my timetable looks like
    1) Look at the top right corner, and make sure this is set to term 1. Term 1 runs till the end of the Christmas holidays. You can choose term 1 from the criteria selection popup. 2) Some seminars do not run weekly, Pay attention to my Tuesday 12:00 - 13:00 seminar The numbers at the bottom right corner of the blue box indicate which weeks the seminars will take place. In my case, week 3, 5, 7, 9 etc. (this seminar happens fortnightly)Week 1 begins on the 19th September (due to induction lecture) and so on. . If the box says Term 1/ Term 1 and 2, then the lecture will run steadily throughout. 3) Filter timetable by week, by week will tell you exactly what lectures and seminars are happening that week (skip tip 2) 4) Genuine overlapping lectures/seminars No big problem Your course leader will host your first induction day, they are the ones who manage the course. Go and speak to him/her and they'll make amendments
    That's about it,Still confused?The first few weeks are pretty relaxed and in my experience lecturers often don't mind you arriving late. If you need help, drop me a message.
