FAQs - Class Timetabling


FAQ - What type of detail do I need to consider for the timetable?

  • Constraints for external lecturers
  • Constraints for part-time courses
  • What room is required for labs?
  • Maximum Lab/Tut group sizes
  • What modules need to be scheduled together?
  • Are there requests for changes going to APRC which will affect the timetable?
  • First year students are given their LM course code at their Orientation week Course meeting.  They can view their timetable at www.timetable.ul.ie under "1st Year Lecture Only" link, using their LM code and Year.  After Week 1 registrations are downloaded, a personalised timetable is generated for each first year student.  This details the laboratory and tutorial groups they must attend as well as all their lecture hours.  This is available by close of business on Friday of week 2 at www.timetable.ul.ie.  Students who do not register in week 1 cannot be issued with a personalised timetable. 
  • In spring, all students can access their timetables from the web one week in advance of the start of semester.

An Events/All Staff email is sent out in advance of the start of term with a link to a file detailing who is allocated to each group.  If students do not register, they will not be listed in any group.  Student timetabling is entirely dependent on student registrations.
