Hello all,

At my university, we have irregular timetabling- every week looks completely different from the next- there's no regularity to my classes. It makes it really hard to plan other activities/ appointments and I really struggle with the lack of routine. Is this normal practice at universities? How does your university organise your timetable?

Thanks

I think it has to do with the pandemic. When I studied at Leeds pre-COVID my timetable was rather similar each week (interpreting and translation) but then COVID hit and things were different, including the timetabling. Now that I study at Warwick (biochemistry), my timetable looks more like yours and I think the mix of online and in-person lectures/tutorials/seminars is likely the root cause.

Hi, I am first year student and started in October. Obviously its only been two weeks so far and yes my timetable has been a bit all over the place but from week 4 onwards it stabilises and seems fixed but they always say how everything is still "subject to change". But yeahh I agree with you do the irregularity is annoying but its all down to COVID and its impact on timetabling cuz obvs rn they cannot have 100% face to face teaching but for me I wanna create a routine but its hard cuz like one week I may not have lessons from 3PM onwards but then the week after I have a lab session 3 till 5 so yeahh its quite annoying but just gotta firm it really.

My uni said they are looking to increase the number of in person classes from next week onwards but are still keeping the option ot join online in place for individuals who are unwell or self isolating etc
