Information on the University’s timetable system

Update: synchronisation of data with OS X El Capitan

Students using MacOS 10.11 (El Capitan) should be aware that it may automatically change the auto-refresh settings for the calendar to “Every week”; this may affect the regularity of updates to the Timetable reaching your device.

To change this, open the calendar app, right-click on your subscribed Timetable calendar, and select “Get info”.  Change the “Auto-refresh” option to your preferred choice (e.g., “Every five minutes”).

Timetables for the 2016-17 academic year are available at

The University provides a service to offer personalised student timetables to the University’s Departments and Institutions for the 2016-17 academic year.

The Timetable application allows departments to publish courses, parts, modules and events.  It provides the ability to publish a complex timetable, in a modular fashion, that is accessible and personalised to each individual student and lecturer.

Students can select the elements of the public timetable that are relevant to them individually, and add them to a personalised calendar.  This calendar can then be viewed either within the Timetable interface, or students can subscribe to an ical feed  to add the events to their local device/calendar.  These events will then be updated on the student’s device if they are updated in Timetable.
