Each year when students enrol onto their chosen courses there are occasional clashes between teaching events within a course, or between different subjects that need intervention from staff to override them. This academic year 2021/22, in order to address the capacity and distancing restrictions in classes it may have been necessary to create additional instances of labs (or other practical classes), and there may be an increase in the occurrence of clashes.
Please see watch these short videos to check which type of clash you are experiencing and for more information and guidance on what to do next.
Where the clash is between a lab and an asynchronous lecture this may be allowed as you will be able to access the lecture content at any time of your choosing. Please see watch this short video to check if this is the type of clash you are experiencing and how to request help from staff to process an override on MyCampus.
Not all timetable clashes will be able to be approved due to the nature of some individual degree structures and requirements. Your College will advise you if this is the case in response to your Helpdesk enquiry.
Where the clash is between a lab and a synchronous but online event (sometimes referred to as a ‘live’ event) you should make an enquiry via the Helpdesk so that the relevant School or Course Co-ordinator can check if the content will be available after the event and therefore whether the clash will be permissible. If so, then the clash may be over-ridden. If not, you will need to find a clash-free alternative.
Where the clash is with another on-campus event you will need to find an alternative, clash-free alternative. Please watch this short video for more information and guidance on what to do next.
