Timetables and course dates

Provisional timetables for MLTC courses (2020-21):


Arabic | French | German | Italian | Latin | Polish | Portuguese | Spanish | Enhanced Languages

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.

Please note that the times are provisional and will be confirmed prior to registrations opening in early September. In Autumn 2020, all courses will be delivered online via the University’s VLE and include the timetabled ‘live’/‘face-to-face’ sessions in groups of up to 12 students as well as other self-study activities. We plan to return to face-to-face teaching in Spring.

Please note that the MLTC uses the University of Sheffield's standard teaching weeks (ie Week 2 = week commencing 5th October) on its timetables in relation to classes and submission deadlines.

  • Examinations can be scheduled at any time between 09:00 and 17:30 Monday to Saturday during the examination period.

The dates of examinations cannot be changed.
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 (eg 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, ie, either later the same day or later in the week. You cannot, for instance, choose a class on Thursdays and a lab on Wednesdays.
