When you can enrol in subjects depends on the session you’re enrolling in, and whether you are a new student or re-enrolling student. Enrolment dates for each session can be found on our Key Dates page.
Subject Timetables for Trimester 1 and Autumn Session 2021 will be published on 29 November 2020. These will be available to view on the Timetabling website.
The Subject Timetable will outline how classes will be delivered for each available subject. To check this for a specific subject, refer to the location listed against that subject’s classes, as highlighted in the screenshot below.
Some subjects may offer both on-campus and online (dual delivery) class options, while others may only offer online classes (remote delivery) or only on-campus classes.
To ensure physical distancing requirements are maintained in classrooms, there will be limits set on the number of students able to enrol in and attend campus classes.
To ensure physical distancing requirements are maintained, lectures held on campus in 2021 will have attendance limits.
Therefore, students enrolled in subjects with on-campus lectures will need to enrol in these as part of the tutorial enrolment process.
This could be due to a few reasons:
- Class enrolment has not yet opened for that subject
- It’s past the last day to enrol and class enrolment has closed; or
- It’s a lecture at a set time and you are not required to enrol in these.
Be sure to familiarise yourself with the relevant colour coding system for class enrolment - you can find this information on the Tutorial Enrolment Instructions page in SOLS.
For further assistance, please contact your Faculty or School.
This may be because the classes have not been finalised and it is too early to enrol. Another reason could be that you may be allocated classes by UOW staff. If you are unsure and would like assistance, please contact your Faculty or School.
If there are no available classes to choose from you will need to contact your Faculty (or School) contact who may be able to add you to another class, or assist with a tutorial swap.
This means that the tutorial is not held every week i.e. it is only held on the specified weeks of session (week 1 is the first week of session).
If your preferred class or tutorial is full, you may need to choose a different option. However, if you have extenuating circumstances such as work, family commitments, or clashes with another class, please contact to your Faculty or School to discuss your options.
Greyed out items are lectures for subjects you’ve enrolled in. These lectures are at set times and you do not enrol in these. Lectures that you do need to enrol in will be colour coded accordingly. For assistance, refer to the Tutorial Enrolment Instructions in SOLS or contact your Faculty or School.
Some Lecturers record their lectures live (or remotely) and upload the recording to Moodle for students to refer back to. Your Lecturer will discuss this in your first lecture, along with the subject’s attendance requirements. You can also find attendance information listed in the Subject Outline.
If you cannot attend a class you will need to notify your lecturer or tutor as soon as possible. They will advise you on what steps to take.
Different subjects have different types of teaching components. Some subjects include practical components called workshops, practicals, or laboratories. Subject timetables will outline what these components are for each subject. Subject coordinators will normally discuss the expectations, attendance requirements and other subject components during the first lecture or list these in the Subject Outline.
