Timetables and course dates


MLTC Timetables - Spring 2022/23

Timetables are provisional as classes are offered subject to viability of student numbers and availability of staff. These will be confirmed at the start of the semester. Teaching is mainly delivered through a two-hour class and a one-hour language lab, however some modules have more contact hours and follow a slightly different structure. All of our classes and labs will be delivered in person and will be in groups of up to 23 students and labs will be in groups of up to 15 students.

If you have any questions about your timetable, or need to report a clash, please visit our Student Hub Timetabling FAQs.

Please note that the MLTC uses the University of Sheffield's standard teaching weeks on its timetables in relation to classes and submission deadlines.

The dates of examinations cannot be changed.
Group allocation

2022/23 classes and labs will be taught in person on campus. Participating is essential, and a requirement for module validation.

Generally, when there are several groups, the class group and the lab group are allocated independently from one another (e.g. you may be allocated to 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, your lab must run AFTER the class, i.e. either later the same day or later in the week. You cannot, for instance, attend a class on Thursdays and a lab on Wednesdays.

Some modules/languages, however, have 4 or 5 contact hours that are split into a two classes and a lab. In these cases, students are able to take one of the classes after the lab, as long as the first class takes place before the lab. Please see the individual language timetable pages for information regarding specific modules.

Specific students (e.g. external self funded and DDP) will be offered a choice of groups. Group Choice Forms are sent by the MLTC after we have processed your application and you are registered on our module(s). The deadline to change groups is Friday 24th February (end of week 3). Students enrolled on MLTC courses are only allowed to change their group after this stage for exceptional reasons. If you are enrolled on an MLTC course and wish to change your group, please visit our student hub for further guidance.

Industrial Action: Spring Timetable Information

UCU members have no legal obligation to let their employer know in advance whether they will be taking part in the strikes, and we do not know, at departmental level, which colleagues are UCU members. This makes it difficult for us to provide you with accurate information as to which courses / groups will be running or not, but we will aim to provide you with the information we have, and update it on a daily basis here.

It may also be that your tutor contacts you directly to let you know whether their groups are running.
