Frequently Asked Questions

All effort is taken to release the timetable in its most correct format, but unfortunately unavoidable factors sometime lead to minor changes to the timetable after release. It is strongly suggested that students review their timetable closer to the commencement of the teaching semester to make sure they have current schedules.

Where do I find date info?

How do I use the timetable?

Using the Timetable.

Where will you find your semester timetable?

You can access your timetable by following this link: http://student.admin.utas.edu.au/coursesenrolment/timetable/

What information is required to access your timetable?

You will need :

  • your student number if you have already enrolled in the units you require, or
  • the unit codes of the units that you propose studying.

On the timetable search page -

  • Type in your student number or unit codes
  • Then select type of events line - select Lectures only and you will be taken to a page which shows all the available lectures for you.
  • Click on the Unit code link and you will be taken to the unit details on the Course and Unit handbook. 
  • Scroll down the page and read the teaching patterns of the unit. You will be given details about how many lectures, tutes or workshops you need to attend.

It is important for you to read the teaching patterns for your units, the Course & Unit Handbook gives you information on how many lectures/tutorials/practicals or workshops you need to attend. You need this information before you view at your timetable.

You aren't enrolled in any units yet?

Visit your eStudentCentre to enrol in the required units for the appropriate semester.

Access is via your UTAS logon and password. Can't log on? See ITS: www.utas.edu.au/service-desk

Attending your first lecture...

It is important to attend your first lecture as additional information regarding tutorial, practical and workshop groups and rosters may be given. Remember - tutorials are designed usually for small group discussions and you will not be required to attend all timetabled tutorials; you should be able to allocate yourself to a tutorial suitable to your schedule. Please contact the appropriate school directly for clarification and allocation.

Your units are not showing?

You may not have enrolled successfully in your eStudentCentre. Check your enrolment and if you have not enrolled, do so then wait 24 hours before revisiting the timetable.

Can't find a unit?

You may find there is no timetable data matching your query... first, check the details you entered. A small number of units offered by AMC and the Conservatorium of Music are not registered on the online system and there should be notification on the timetable page with details if this is the case. If you cannot find any timetable details for a particular unit please check the Course and Unit Handbook for further information and if this resource does not assist, please contact the appropriate School. Perhaps also you are studying a unit via distance and this will not be timetabled as the study may be flexible or controlled internally by the School. You are recommended to directly contact the appropriate School for clarification.




Please email the Timetabling Office. Hopefully the Timetable Office will be able to assist you, but if a school has not provided the Office with their timetable requirements for a particular unit we will most likely refer you to the appropriate School for clarification.

A quick guide to class times:

The University designates standard times for the scheduling of classes.

  • The standard booking period for a lecture is 1 hour, consisting of 50 minutes teaching time, and 10 minutes for movement between classes.
  • Classes begin on the hour and run for 50 minutes: eg 10am-10.50am, 12 noon- 12.50pm.

A quick guide to semesters:

The University year is currently divided into 5 teaching periods (semesters). These are:




WEEKS (* Approx)

Semester 3


From the start of the calendar year to the start of semester 1


Semester 1


Late February to late May


Semester 4


The mid-year period between semesters 1 and 2


Semester 2


Mid July to mid October


Semester 5


From the end of semester 2 to the end of the calendar year


Semester 1 and 2 weeks do not include exam periods. In addition there are two mid-semester breaks, each of one week duration:

  • the Easter break during semester 1
  • and the AVCC common week during semester 2

All are listed in Key Dates.

A quick guide to understanding the semester weeks & display in your timetable (also see Using the Timetable):

Semesters 1 and 2 are the two key undergraduate semesters, both 13 weeks each.

Semester  3, 4 and 5 units are offered by some Faculties. Generally these units are designed for more flexible teaching and do not have set formal teaching weeks therefore start and end dates may vary. For details of unit offerings consult the Course and Unit Handbook.



Weeks: SUMMER (SEM 3): 2;4

If your timetable has an entry where the week numbers are separated by a semi-colon this means that you only need to attend classes for that unit during those listed weeks - in this example, Weeks 2 and 4 in the summer semester 3.

Weeks: SUMMER (SEM 3): 2-4

If the weeks are expressed as a range this means that you need to attend classes for that unit across all of the weeks within that range – in this example, Weeks 2, 3 and 4 in the summer semester 3.
