Launch dates for MyCurriculum, the new online course selection system, are now available on the MyCurriculum pages of StaffNet - and the University is gearing up in anticipation.
There will be a phased release of MyCurriculum to students for 2015-16 course selection commencing 10 August. The system will become available to different student groups ahead of the start of teaching, ensuring that all students have a minimum of one week for course choices to be made. This phased released will allow for the management of peaks in system demand, both in terms of hardware and support arrangements for students with queries.
During the course selection period, the first level of support for students will be via InfoHub staff, who will provide a triage service, passing queries to appropriate areas depending on the nature of the enquiry. University Senior Management has agreed that all queries must be responded to within 2 working days.
There is also comprehensive online guidance for students on the MyCurriculum website, including both “quick start” and complete instruction guides, a comprehensive set of FAQs, and demonstration videos (to be added shortly). Throughout the summer, the new student E-zines will also provide basic information and direct new students to the MyCurriculum webpages for further details.
From 28 August, students who have completed MyCurriculum will be able to log into MyTimetable to select their tutorials, labs and practicals and then download a personalised timetable.
MyCurriculum provides students with a user-friendly way to choose their courses, taking into account any pre-requisites required and the teaching timetable.
If you’d like to see MyCurriculum in action, a demonstration video, along with further information, is available by visiting the Student Lifecycle project webpage.
