My timetable

We know that it is important that you have a timetable in order to plan your time. We can provide you example timetables before you register to help you get an idea of your timetable. Once you are registered you will have access to your personal timetable online.

How do I get a personal timetable?
  1. Once you have completed the registration task in e:Vision (the student portal), you will then be able to view an e:Vision personal timetable within 5 working days*. Information on how to register is available from our Welcome page.
  2. Make sure you view your timetable for each week, as your timetable may vary weekly; some lectures do not run every week, or may run for different lengths of time.
  3. If you have studied at Anglia Ruskin before and are returning to take a new course, you may find you have a new student record. You will also get a new student record if you change how you are studying, for example going from full-time to part-time. You will still have the same student number, but with a different number at the end. For example, 1300000/2. You will need to use the correct record in order to view your timetable.
  4. If you have not yet registered, it is still possible to access general timetabling information. Please refer to to the other questions on this page.

*Unless you are starting your course in September 2017, and register before 27 July 2017. In this case, you will get your timetable within 5 working days after 27 July 2017. This is because this is the date that next year's timetable is published, so no timetables will be available before this date.


Can I see my timetable on our University app?

Yes. As well as viewing your timetable in e:Vision, you can also view your timetable in our university app.

Download your timetable to your smart phone/tablet, making it easier to access timetabling information where ever you are.

  • The mobile app will only update if you have access to reliable WiFi.

Can I access timetable information before I register?

Yes, module and course timetables are available on our website to help you get an idea of class times for the modules you will be studying. We also have example timetables to give you an idea of what your timetable might look like before you start. Example timetables will give you an indication of how many hours of teaching you have each week and how many days a week you may have classes.


How do I find out which modules I will be studying?

Our module catalogue lists all of the modules on your course. To view this information, find your Faculty, department and then select the course you will be studying.

  1. You will be shown a list of all the modules included in your course, select any module to view more content. Please be aware there will be compulsory modules you have to study, and in some cases optional modules that you have to make a selection from.
  2. Keep a note of the codes and titles of your modules for level 4*.

*Level 4 will typically be your first year of study if you are a new undergraduate. If you are going straight into the second year (level 5) or third year (level 6), please adjust accordingly. If you are joining a post graduate course you will be studying level 7 modules.


What times will my classes be?

General module, course and example personal timetables are available now on our website.

  1. Here you can either view your course's timetable, or view each module‘s timetable. You may find it easier to look at each module's timetable initially to get an idea of what the teaching for each module is like.
  2. Typically a module will have a lecture (or lectures) that you have to attend, then a choice of seminars/tutorials that you just need to attend one of.
  3. When you get your personal timetable you will find that have been automatically allocated to classes for each of your modules. Example timetables are available to give you an idea of how many hours a week you will have classes.
  4. Make sure you view your timetable for each week, as your timetable may vary, as some lectures do not run every week, or may run for different lengths of time.

If you wish to find out what days/times your modules will run in the next academic year, this information will be available from this site from July each year. We publish the whole academic year‘s timetable at once, so after this date you will be able to find out class times from September until the summer.


Can I change the times of my classes?

It is sometimes possible to request changes via our online form if your classes are delivered more than once a week and another time suits you better. time change requests are answered on a first served basis and are dependent on availability. You should continue to attend your timetabled classes until you have heard from us. Please note that deadlines apply. Time changes are not possible for all courses.


Could my timetable change?

Yes, sometimes it is necessary to make changes but we keep them to a minimum. When we do make a change, we will update your timetable on e:Vision and email your university account. It is important to check your e:Vision timetable and emails regularly.


Is my timetable complete?

Nearly all our courses have a completely compulsory first year so most students will receive a complete timetable. The following information will help you if your course does have optional modules to choose from.

Semester/Trimester 1 - There are a small number of courses that require students to make choices for this first period of study. Visit do I need to choose modules? to check whether you need to choose any optional modules for your course.

Semester 2/Trimesters 2 & 3 - You will see some modules on your timetable for these teaching periods, but you may also need to make some optional choices. You will be contacted via email during Semester/Trimester 1 if you need to make module selections ready for Semester 2/Trimesters 2 and 3.



What are 'modules'?
At Anglia Ruskin University we use the word ‘modules’ to refer to what you may know as courses, units or classes. Each module has a credit value which can count towards a final award. You can use the online module catalogue to access information about the modules on offer for your course. Typically the majority of modules have one or more timetabled classes. The number of modules you will study varies depending on how many credits they are worth and how many modules you need to take for your course.


Why do my classes have different names?

Typically, all students attend a lecture and then may be placed into smaller groups for seminars/workshops/practicals/tutorials. As these are smaller classes often there are more one of these types of classestimetabled. Please see your personal timetable on e:Vision to view which specific class you have to attend. The general module timetable on our website shows when all the different classes for each module are running.


What is an 'academic year'?

Our 'academic year' starts in September and ends in August.  Typically most Anglia Ruskin courses have timetabled classes from September – May only, but there are courses that teach throughout all of the academic year. We have a quick list of timetabling dates available.   Please also check the academic calendar as this contains more detail about other important dates in the year (for example, exam weeks and vacation dates).


What do 'semester' and 'trimester' mean?

The words 'semester' and 'trimester' describe the period of time over which a module is taught.  Typically UK schools have three terms in each academic year.  At Anglia Ruskin, most courses either have two semesters or three trimesters during an academic year.   A quick list of timetabling dates is available. Please also check the academic calendar as this contains more detail about other important dates in the year (for example, exam weeks and vacation dates).


Study support for students with individual requirements
