Timetables & Induction

Your timetables are found on UniLife.  Don't panic if you cannot see your timetable online, it will be posted close to your date of enrollment. When you first look at your timetable it could be a bit confusing, so we've created this helpful guide. You will only be able to view your timetable once you have enrolled.

UniLife is the main student portal of the University of South Wales. ‘UniLife’ is also used as an umbrella term for various student information web sites provided by the University, which are often referred to as ‘UniLife Channels’.

The “Your Study” area of the UniLife homepage collects together important online resources related to studying at USW, including a link to UniLearn (Blackboard and for some students Moodle), library resources, induction and timetable information, and IT Support.

Find out more information on how to use UniLife.
