Student timetables

Student timetables for the 2020-21 academic year will be made live online from Friday 11th September.  For some Programmes and Modules departments are continuing to finalise and confirm timetables - if you have queries you should contact your department in the first instance.

Your timetable for 2020 will tell you when you need to be on campus or when you need to attend an online session.

  • Any booking which has ONLINE, Blackboard Delivery is an online session scheduled at this time
  • Any booking which shows a University building and room e.g Arts Tower, LT01, is an on campus event that you need to attend in person

There will be other resources available for you, including recorded content from your department, which you can access in your own time.  This will not appear in your timetable.

Both new and returning students can view timetables online via MUSE, in iSheffield and can create a timetable feed to their Google calendar.

Your timetable can be viewed by clicking on My Timetable from the All services menu in MUSE.

The information below tells you how to view your personal timetable online, how you can look at other timetables e.g a module, making bookings, in teaching space, for a student society and viewing next year's DRAFT timetable.

Links on the right hand side of this page also show you how you can import your timetable into an electronic calendar (ICal) and viewing timetables via the iSheffield app.  There are also links to the Campus Map and to the University Semester and Term dates.

How can I see my timetable

Basic TT

Your timetable opens at the current week of the academic year (or the first week of the year if you are viewing ahead of the start of the year).  The top (centre) of the window shows the dates of the week and the week number e.g. 1(S2) = Week 1 of Semester 2.


At the top left of the window you can see a left and right arrow - to the left of your name. Use these to navigate to the Next or Previous week of your timetable.  


In the centre of these arrows is a calendar icon - use this to select any date in the academic year and view your timetable for that week.

Individual cells/blocks show when you have classes/activities.

The individual boxes (cells) on the timetable window show you:

  • The Name of the module/unit
  • The Code for the module/unit
  • The Bulding/Room in which the class is located
  • The name of the Lecturer
  • The weeks scheduled
  • Other information e.g. Experiment title

Cell descriptor

By clicking on one of the cells a pop-up window will open containing more detail of the timetable event.

Other views of the timetable

By clicking on the Timetables menu at the top of the screen you can change the way in which your timetable displays either as a daily or monthly timetable

Other timetables

Looking at timetables for modules and courses online

Although My Timetable will default to your personal timetable, you can also look up other timetables such as those for Modules/Units and Courses/Programmes and computer room availability.  This can be useful when you are making module choices as you can see when a module is scheduled and whether it fits with your current timetable.

Viewing other timetables

To view other timetables you will need to use the buttons at the top right of your timetable window


Hover over the left icon (innermost) and you will see it is labelled 'Toggle timetable list'.  Click on this button to open a panel to the right of your timetable.

Add TT

You can now click the Add button to view additional timetables - you can look at a Programme/Course, Class Group (a sub-group of a Programme) or Unit/Module

Add TT filter

To view another timetable simply enter the Name or Code of the timetable you want to look at e.g. SCS1002: The Sociological Imagination.

Click OK and the timetable will be added to your list and the timetable will be added to your window next to your own timetable.  You can repeat the Add process to view other modules, programmes or class groups too.

You can see in the example below the that the module has several alternative groups, of which you'd sign up for one, so you can see which one would fit with your current timetable


If you wish to keep the timetables that you are viewing you can click the Save button at the bottom of the panel - this will save the list and you can turn timetables on/off by selecting the tick-box to the left of the module.
