Understand your teaching timetable

Your timetable is available via MYUWE, under the Timetable tab.

In your timetable you will see:

  • Module code and module name (list view only): For example UBGML5-30-3 – Renewable Energy.
  • Type of session: Examples include lecture, seminar or workshop.
  • Delivery mode: Online, on campus, pre-recorded. Please note that pre-recorded sessions are displayed on your timetable to indicate that pre-recorded materials will be made available to you from that day/time; however, you do not need to access this material at the time specified on your timetable.
  • Week number: This indicates the week(s) the session will take place. 
  • Session titles: Some taught sessions have a specific title which will show on your timetable.

Access online taught sessions

Links to online sessions are available on Blackboard (login required).

Request a timetable change

If you are an eligible student at level 2, 3 or on a Master's programme, you can request a change to your timetable via the Online Module Choice system (login required) between Wednesday 6 September 2023 and Monday 9 October 2023 at midnight.
