Class & Exam Timetables

Important Notes

In general, each module consists of three hours’ of lectures and one hour of tutorial every week. Lectures are usually scheduled in two 2-hour blocks per week although they are not taught to the full hour (to allow time for students to move between classes). Tutorials are scheduled separately.

Level 5000 and higher modules are usually small in enrolment and more interactive in nature so there are usually no separate tutorial classes outside the four scheduled lecture hours. Some higher level modules are originally structured to have only a three-hour lecture (no tutorial) every week.
 
A limited number of modules may be scheduled in one 3-hour block in the day or evenings and taught only once a week. Some of these may still have separate tutorials.

All lectures begin in Week 1 of a semester*. Note that in Semester 1 there is an Orientation Week (Week 0) with no classes held.

Tutorials and lab sessions for maths modules begin in Week 3 of a semester*, although some lab sessions may be held once in two weeks/in specific weeks.

*MA1511, MA1512 and MA1513 are 2MC modules and will be taught only for half a semester, with the exam for those taught in first half of the semester held in Week 8. These modules are only offered to students from the Faculty of Engineering.
 
Changes in class and examination timetables are disallowed as revisions may affect many other students. Students are also responsible in ensuring that they do not read modules with clashing class and examination timetables.
 
Due to various constraints in scheduling evening classes, part-time graduate students may have to make their own arrangements to attend day-time classes if necessary. Students who are working must also be prepared to take leave from work to sit for examinations that take place during their working hours.

Examinations are held on campus. There are standard start times for examinations:

AM (Mon - Sat) : 9.00am
PM (Mon - Thu & Sat)  : 1.00pm
PM (Fri) : 2.30pm
Evening (Mon - Thu) : 5.00pm
Night : 7.00pm

Class timetables are published about one month before a semester begins. Students may still plan ahead for an entire academic year but should note that the unpublished timetable is subject to change without notice. Hence, it is always advisable to have contingency plans.
