Schedules in MyTimetable

We are posting the timetables later than usual this year, due to the coronavirus pandemic. You can access your timetable in MyTimetable on 17 August. Your timetable will show which courses you will be taking online and when we will be holding classes on campus. The publication date for the timetable of the second block is still unknown at this moment.

Your personal schedule in MyTimetable only displays the schedules for the courses in which you are enrolled. Only the schedule for the tutorial group to which you have been assigned will be displayed.

Courses largely online

You will complete the majority of your first semester coursework online. If possible, we will organise a few activities on campus. If you haven’t indicated that you’re unable to come to the campus, we will expect you to attend. For students who cannot come to the campus, an online alternative will be offered.

Whether we will be able to hold more classes on campus in the second semester is not yet known.

Schedules in the Course Catalogue

The schedules for all courses in the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences are included in the Course Catalogue.

Exam / additional test schedules

In MyTimetable, you can see where and when the examinations and additional tests will be administered. The information will be available in MyTimetable no later than two months before start of the test or additional test.

You can only view the information for the exams or additional tests for the courses in which you are enrolled. Information about tests for which you are not enrolled can be found in the Course Catalogue.
