Timetables & Induction

Induction Timetable

Induction timetables will be available on August. Please check back regularly for latest updates.

Our induction activities have been designed with you in mind, they’ll help you prepare for life at USW from academics to extracurricular opportunities and everything in between. 

We’ll give out lots of important information and guidance so make sure you attend so you get started on the right path to a fantastic future!

You can access your induction timetable here as they become available.  There may be small changes made to the timetables, please check back at a later date to avoid arriving late or missing out on activities.

Teaching Timetable

Your teaching timetable will be available to view once you have completed your online enrolment. The teaching timetable guide helps you to understand and navigate your timetable.

Lots of factors contribute to the design of your teaching timetables, for example module option choices (where applicable), number of tutorial group, student numbers following confirmation and clearing.  Therefore, please make sure you check back for the most up to date version.

We split courses into multiple tutorial groups. During your induction programme, you’ll find out which group you’ve been allocated. The group you are in will determine when some of your lessons take place. 

For full time courses, teaching is normally scheduled between 9am and 5pm.  If you’re a full time undergraduate, we also aim to finish teaching each Wednesday by 1pm, giving you the afternoon free for sporting or alternate activities.

For further information please visit the teaching timetable guide or speak with a member of the Advice Zone.
