Timetable

Your timetable will be automatically created in MyCampus when you enrol on classes. If you change any of your enrolments or the times/dates of your classes change, your timetable will be updated.

Your timetable will show the class, the type of class and the location of the class. Find your timetable in the Enrol tab or directly from your Student Centre.

When you select courses in MyCampus, you will then select lectures and laboratories. Try to select all your lectures in the morning and labs in the afternoon – or vice versa.

Level-1

You will have specific commitments for approximately 20 hours every week. You should aim to spend a further 15 to 20 hours or so in private study – six hours per subject. Coursework can account for as much as 50% of the final assessment in some subjects. Treat your studies as you would paid employment and aim to 'work' a 35-40 hour week.

Please note that some lectures take place at 5pm. We regard the normal study as 9am to 6pm. If you have special requirements that prevent your attendance after 5pm, you should ensure you choose class times which give you the flexibility you require.

Lectures
Each subject normally has between 3 and 5 one-hour lectures per week.

Lectures start at five minutes after the hour and stop at five minutes to the hour. If you have consecutive lectures, this allows you 10 minutes to get to your next lecture which may be in a different building.

Session 2020-2021
Semester 1: Lectures will be delivered online. Your online timetable will indicate if these will be delivered live or pre-recorded.


Laboratories
You can expect to attend one three-hour practical class every week for most subjects.

Session 2020-2021
Semester 1: Labs may be delivered face-to-face or online. Your online timetable will indicate which labs you are expected to attend on campus.


Workshops
As an alternative (or in addition) to laboratories, some subjects require attendance at workshops, normally one hour.

Session 2020-2021
Semester 1: Workshops may be delivered face-to-face or online. Your online timetable will indicate which workshops you are expected to attend on campus.


Tutorials
Some subjects have a single one-hour tutorial per week. Tutorials provide an opportunity for you to meet in smaller groups (up to 10 or 12) with a member of staff.

Session 2020-2021
Semester 1: Tutorials may be delivered face-to-face or online. Your online timetable will indicate which Tutorials you are expected to attend on campus.

You must attend the lecture or laboratory group on your MyCampus timetable. Most laboratory classes run more than once, but are often within restricted time slots.

Session 2020-2021
Semester 1: Lectures will be delivered online. Your online timetable will indicate if these will be delivered live or pre-recorded.
Semester 1: Labs may be delivered face-to-face or online. Your online timetable will indicate which labs you are expected to attend on campus but please note that this is subject to short notice change in line with Scottish Government guidelines.
