The Timetabling Process


Background Information

The Timetabling Office use Scientia's Syllabus Plus Course Planner software to assist with the scheduling of teaching activities. At the beginning of the year all the details about the room information, programme structures, staff and teaching activity requirements are entered into the Syllabus Plus (S+) database.

A set of theoretical student option combinations is then created as student sets from the Programme Catalogue. These are then attached to the relevant teaching activities and the activities scheduled. For continuing students we use real unit choice data from the exercise undertaken in April to ask students to choose their optional units for the following academic year.

Once the final timetable has been published, any ad-hoc booking requests can then be added to the same database.
