Timetabling

Information for students

View and print your student timetable by accessing your Google calendar.

You can view and print your current student timetable by accessing your Google calendar. 

For information about using your Brookes Google calendar, see Google Apps on the IT Services website. There is also a helpful presentation on "Adding a Course Module Timetable to your Google Calendar".

Please note:

  • We publish the timetable for the whole academic year at the start of July on Google calendar.
  • You can check the timetable for a particular module from the course module list page.
  • Your personal Google calendar will be updated with the teaching events for the modules you enrol to and the sets you are allocated to as this information is processed.
  • Timetables may need to change in year but we will minimise changes as much as possible. Common causes of change may be changes to student numbers, new teaching staff or room problems.

University guidelines on timetabling can be found in the Timetabling Policy in the University's Regulations for Study.

Frequently asked questions

When and where is my timetable published?

At the request of our students, the Timetabling team publish an annual timetable at the start of July each year.

Your personal timetable, once published, can be viewed either through your Google calendar, or you may search for specific modules and their rooms through the course module list.

How do I make changes to my timetable?

If you cannot attend your lab/seminar set teaching for a valid reason (eg work or travel issues, care commitments, medical appointments), you may request a change. Use the Timetabling Request Form

You do not need Module leader permission if you make the request before the start of the semester (Friday of week 0). 

If you request a change after the start of the semester then you must get your module leader to sign the form to indicate their approval before you send it to the timetabling team. Requests without Module Leader Approval will be rejected.

Please note, if your request creates a timetable clash, it will not be processed.  Please always add comments to support your timetabling request. The Timetabling team may not be able to process your request if the group you would like to move to will outgrow its room.

The information on my timetable does not match the information provided in the course handbook?

The information on your timetable reflects requests made by the module leaders before the start of the semester and should therefore be considered the most up-to-date version of the teaching schedule. For further information, please contact the module leader.

One of my classes is not wheelchair accessible. What do I do?

Please contact disabilitysupport@brookes.ac.uk who will liaise with the Timetabling team in order to find an appropriate solution.

One of my classrooms does not have a hearing loop. What do I do?

Please contact disabilitysupport@brookes.ac.uk who will liaise with the Timetabling team in order to find an appropriate solution.

How can I book a room?

Students who wish to book an ad-hoc room for society events or work related to their course, need to book pooled rooms through either the Student Union Room Bookings team, or for course-related work, a request should be made through the Room Booking Request Form for Students.

In the event that a visiting speaker is attending the University, please refer to the Code of Practice on Freedom of Speech including Guidance on Visiting Speakers and complete the External Speaker Request Form.

Booking rooms through University Timetabling and Room Booking is reserved for staff and post graduate students. All other booking requests should be made through the appropriate channels, such as those above.

It would be helpful to receive a minimum of seven days notice in advance of bookings to make it easier to facilitate your request, and locate the best possible room for your event.

For more information, please visit the student room bookings page.

What are the benefits of an annual timetable?

Previously, Brookes provided student timetables on a semesterly basis. This means that the Semester 1 timetable was published in September and the Semester 2 timetable was published in January.

The benefit of this is that continuing students will be able to refer to their timetables earlier in the year and can plan in part-time work and childcare well ahead.
