Understanding your timetable

Find out how to read your timetable, see what courses you’re enrolled in and when and where they are held.

Accessing your timetable

For your personal online timetable, check out the My Study tab in myVictoria.


Lectures are normally 50 minutes long and most courses have two or three lectures per week.

Lectures in Kelburn

Morning lectures in Kelburn campus start on the hour (up to and including 12 noon); afternoon lectures start at 10 minutes past the hour. This means you have 10 minutes to get between lectures, with a 20–minute break between morning and afternoon lectures (from 12.50pm to 1.10pm).

Lectures in Pipitea and Te Aro

Morning lectures held at Pipitea and Te Aro campuses start at 30 minutes after the hour; afternoon lectures start at 40 minutes after the hour.

Tutorials, labs and studios

In addition to your lecture you'll have either a:

  • 50–minute tutorial, or
  • three–hour lab or studio (most Science, Engineering and Architecture and Design courses).

These are smaller group-teaching sessions led by a tutor/lecturer to provide an opportunity for discussion, experiments, project work and individual assistance.

Information about your tutorials, labs and studios will be in your course outline.

Signing up for your tutorials, labs and studios

You sign up to tutorials, labs and studios in the first week of each trimester using myAllocator.

Make a note of your tutorials on your printed copy of your timetable. Tutorials usually start two to three weeks into each trimester.


Large courses are divided into separate groups called streams. Your stream will be on your Confirmation of Study. You can change streams (subject to availability)—either online through Student Records in myVictoria or through your Faculty office.
