Help with MyCurriculum - Timetabling Clash

Frequently Asked Questions

If you make a course change in MyCurriculum and confirm this by completing the Terms and Conditions, you will be unenrolled from all classes (eg tutorials, labs) for that course. If you then re-enrol on the course, you will need to make your class selections for this course again in MyTimetable.

You will also need to make your class selections in MyTimetable for any new courses that you select in MyCurriculum.

After you have selected your courses, you will be able to log into  MyTimetable* to choose your tutorials, practicals and labs (if applicable) and finalise your personal timetable. MyTimetable will guide you through this process via step-by-step online help. You can access MyTimetable on your phone, tablet or PC, as well as subscribe to it on Android, iPhone or Outlook. Please ensure you have completed course selection, received a confirmation email, and have waited 2-3 hours  before trying to login to MyTimetable.

* with the exception of students on programmes who use MyMBChB, MyBDS, MyPA and MyMedSci

This may be because:

  • you do not hold the pre-requisites for the course. Use the Catalogue of Courses  to find out what the pre-requisites for the course are.
  • you are not studying at the correct level to take the course. For example: you are a level 1 student and the course is open only to students in level 2, OR you are a level 3 student and the course is open only to students in levels 1 or 2, OR you are a Postgraduate student and the course is only open to undergraduate students;
  • the course does not timetable with earlier course selections you have made. You can use our Clash Checker to see if there are lecture clashes but remember, MyCurriculum performs a more thorough check, including available tutorial slots, so it may not be possible for you to take the course.

What should I do?


  • choose a different course in place of the option you are looking for, or
  • change your optional course selections – by removing a course at a time, and checking to see if the option you wish to take now appears in the drop-down lists. This will allow you to see which courses are clashing and help you decide which mix of optional courses to select.

… but there really is no other optional course I would like to take, what should I do?

The University, for academic reasons, does not recommend that students take clashing courses. If you believe you have an exceptional circumstance and wish to apply to take a clashing course, please click the "No, I need more help" button at the bottom of this page. In answer to the question “What do you need help with?” choose “Take Clashing Course” from the drop down list.

Please note: There is no guarantee that you will be given permission and you should look for alternative courses to study should your request be refused.

Please note that the class times displayed in the  Timetable Clash Checker are in your computer's local time zone. To view UK class times, please make sure your computer's time zone is set to London/UK.
