Changing the way we produce your timetable from 2016/17

10 August 2015 by

Student-Led timetabling is a timetabling approach where students select the modules (subject to the rules defined in the approved programme specification) they wish to study and the University schedules these choices with the intention of producing a clash-free timetable prior to the start of the next academic year.  There would be no cap on the number of students who can take a module.

The decision has been made to move to this model from 2016/17 and is broadly based around student and staff feedback received via the National Student Survey and internal University evaluation and survey mechanisms.  In response to student feedback, the University wishes to improve the experience for students when they select their modules.

As part of the implementation the University has consulted with staff, students and the Students’ Union over the past two years. Further discussions with STARs will take place during the first semester of 2015/16.

Key timelines of the new timetabling approach are:

  • Module selection will take place late January
  • Timetables published early July
  • Module changes early July until second week of Undergraduate teaching each academic year

A series of FAQs on Student-Led timetabling are available on the Registry Services website: University of Worcester – Registry Services – Timetabling
