Students should be given access to their academic timetables earlier in the summer. I have seen other universities give out their timetables months in advance whereas ours are given out a week or two before start date, if that. Even then they tend to have errors and modules clashing. This should be sorted out months in advance then if there are any clashes they can be resolved well before returning to lectures.
25/06/2018 - **UPDATE**
This year, I've workled with the University on trying to improve timetabling. This year they're hoping the timetable will be released in Septembber with less instability and fewer changes.
This is something I am going to handover to Isobel, the next President of Education, so if you have any further concerns, please get in touch at [email protected]
