General guidance on how to understand your timetable is shared in this section
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.
Teaching will be delivered in hybrid mode, with a combination of online and on-campus face-to-face activities.

If the activity on your timetable has an online element you may see the following activity types:
- LIVE STREAMING = this means the tutor will be live streaming the activity and will provide you with information on whether you will join in-person or online closer to the start of teaching.
- LIVE STREAMING – ONLINE = this means you will be attending the activity online. Your tutor will provide you with information on how to join the online session closer to the start of teaching.

- ONLINE - Pre-recorded = 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.
