Class times and venues:
Additional information:

- Timetables are provisional as classes are offered subject to viability of student numbers and availability of staff. Contact time may also vary according to the size of the group.
- Class times will be confirmed when enrolling but may be scheduled at alternative times by arrangements between the module tutor and the group.
- If you need to change the group(s) you are enrolled on, please apply online.
- Please note that the MLTC uses the University of Sheffield's standard teaching weeks (i.e. Week 2 = week commencing 7th October) on its timetables in relation to classes and submission deadlines.

Choosing your class, lab and groups

Some courses include a class AND a lab hour every week. Attending both is essential, and a requirement for module validation.
When there are several groups, the class group and the lab group are chosen independently from one another (e.g. you can choose Group 2 for the class and Group 4 for the lab).
Work done in the lab is intended as consolidation of the work done in class. Therefore, the lab you choose must run AFTER the class, i.e. either later the same day or later in the week. You cannot, for instance, choose a class on Thursdays and a lab on Wednesdays.
