How to access your timetable

Your personal timetable

Timetables are subject to change, you should check your personal timetable regularly to ensure that you are either on campus or online at the right times.

You can access your personalised timetable through Minerva or our UniLeeds app on your mobile device. You can find instructions below on how to access your timetable through these systems.

General guidance on how to understand your timetable is shared in this section. You should also check the section below titled School Specific Advice, for additional guidance.

Most modules have whole class teaching which everyone studying the module attends together and then group teaching where the whole cohort is split into smaller groups. When you look at your timetable, you will be able to see all the teaching activities you should take part in. When we refer to activities, we mean the classes associated with your module. This year, you'll be attending your course in different ways, some of your teaching is going to be in one of the three University supported learning platforms (Collaborate Ultra, Microsoft Teams and Zoom).

When you look at your student timetable you will be able to see the following information:

1.    Time and Day: The start and finish time of the activity  
2.    Activity Name: Each activity on your timetable will be clearly labelled to indicate the method of delivery. Some examples are listed below: 

  • [ON CAMPUS]
  • [ONLINE – LIVE via Collaborate]
  • [ONLINE – LIVE via Teams]
  • [ONLINE – LIVE via Zoom]
  • [ONLINE – LIVE]  

       Where you see [ONLINE – LIVE] further guidance will be provided by the Module Team through Minerva, you can find information on how to navigate Minerva here.

       When you have [ON-CAMPUS] teaching please avoid congregating outside rooms once your teaching has finished to help maintain social distancing.

3.    Module Code: clicking this will give take you to a description of the module.
4.    Teaching Weeks: the week(s) the activity is taught in. Clicking on the word “weeks” will take you to a page that provides a week to date conversion chart.
5.    Location: details of the location will be shown for on-campus teaching. Clicking on the location name will take you to a page that provides directions to the room along with other useful information.
6.    Staff Name: this is the academic member of staff who is delivering the teaching activity to you.
7.    Additional Information: Sometimes additional information may be provided regarding the content of the activity; this is usually towards the bottom of the box when viewing your timetable through Minerva and by tapping the activity name when accessing it through the UniLeeds app.

You may also see the following text on your timetable:

  • Alternative times: this appears if the teaching activity has alternative times. Click the link to see the alternative times. At the start of term it may be possible to move to an alternative time, however this depends on the module. Please contact your school timetabler to discuss if this is possible.
  • Drop-in session: this appears if you only need to drop-in at some point during the time shown and not for the whole time shown on your timetable. If a drop-in session causes a timetable clash contact your school timetabler for guidance.
  • Your timetable may show activities labelled [PRE-RECORDED - See Minerva] - this is a recommended time for you to engage with teaching that is not live to ensure you are prepared for any subsequent live sessions for that module. You can choose to access this in your own time but it is important that you stay up-to-date with all teaching that is not live. Some modules you are studying may not show recommended times for Pre-Recorded content, instead the Module Manager will communicate with you to make sure you understand you need to access this teaching in your own time.

Teaching that takes place between January 2021 and August 2021 will not be visible until December 2020. 

If you are studying a module whose semester 1 teaching starts in January 2021, and then has a semester 2 that is taught in September 2021, you will not be to view your semester 2 September 2021 timetable until May 2021.

Collaborate, Teams and Zoom are the three University supported learning platforms used for online classrooms, your induction will include information on how to access them. Find more information about Collaborate and it’s user interface here.
