Class timetables in 2021
Due to COVID-19 safety requirements, not all Semester 1 2021 classes will be on campus, some classes will be delivered online.
Lectures for higher education courses
Lectures for higher education courses will be online only and made available via Canvas during semester. Lectures for higher education courses will NOT be displayed in myTimetable.
Lectures for vocational education courses
Lectures for vocational education courses may be on campus, online or a mix of both. The delivery mode will depend on the course. Lectures for vocational education courses WILL be displayed in myTimetable.
Facilitated classes (tutorials, etc) for all courses
Facilitated classes – such as tutorials, lectorials, workshops and practicals – may be on campus, online or a mix of both. The delivery mode will depend on the course. Both on campus and online facilitated classes for higher education and vocational education courses WILL be displayed in myTimetable.
How to tell if a class is on campus or online
You can tell if a class is on campus or online by checking myTimetable from 22 December 2020 onwards.
- Log in to myTimetable and click on a class in the Enrolment panel on the left hand side of the screen. This will display all of the classes for the course.
- Look at the Campus column.
If the class is on campus the Campus column will list the campus where the class is being delivered and the Location column will list the class room. Note: Information on how to read RMIT room numbers is on the Class timetable FAQs page.
If the class is online the Campus column will say Canvas.
Classes with a mix of on campus and online delivery
Some classes will be delivered on campus for some weeks and online for other weeks. These classes have multiple ‘parts’. Each part is displayed as P1, P2, etc in the Activity column.
Take a look at the example below.
In this example, there are five classes numbered 01, 02, 03, 04 and 05. Each class has two parts labelled P1 and P2. Each student must attend ONE class. So, if you select the 02 class, you must attend 02-P1 classes (on Melbourne City campus) and 02-P2 classes (online via Canvas). You will not be able to mix-and-match parts from across different classes (for example, attend 01-P1 classes and 02-P2 classes).
In the 02 class, P1 classes are taught on Melbourne City campus for some weeks (see the Weeks column) and P2 classes are taught online via Canvas on all other weeks.
It’s important to check the Weeks column so you know which weeks your classes are on campus or online, and the Duration column as some classes might be longer than others.
Entering class preferences
Most vocational education students do not need to enter preferences, you will be automatically allocated to a class unless your Course Coordinator has told you that you must allocate yourself to a class. See the Vocational education class timetable guide.
Can’t see your classes in myTimetable?
If you are enrolled in a higher education course and can’t see your lectures in myTimetable, don’t worry. Higher education lectures in Semester 1 2021 will NOT be displayed in myTimetable because all lectures for higher education courses will be online only and made available via Canvas during semester. There will be no face-to-face lectures in higher education courses.
If you cannot see your facilitated classes (tutorials, lectorials, workshops, practicals, etc) or vocational education lectures, your course may not have been entered into myTimetable yet. Please check again the week prior to the start of Semester 1 2021. If you're not sure when Semester 1 starts, check 2021 important dates.
