Format of the timetable

There are two different views that the information can be displayed in (you may want to experiment with both to see which view suits you best). The choices are:

Grid

The Grid view displays a table with the days running down the sides (from top to bottom) and the times of the day running along the top.

Each grey box represents a different activity being taught. Each box shows: the Activity code, the Room number, and the Week numbers that the activity is taking place.

Please note: You may need to use the horizontal scroll bar to view all of your timetable.

List separate days

The List separate days view displays the information as a vertical list with the days running downwards. Under each day is a table showing: the Activity code, the Module code, the Start time, the End time, the activity Duration, the Room number, and the Week numbers that the activity is taking place.

Hints on printing timetables

  1. Change the page orientation
    Select ‘File’, then ‘Page setup’ on your browser and change the orientation to ‘landscape’
  2. Reduce the margins
    Select ‘File’, then ‘Page setup’ on your browser and reduce the left and right margins to zero
  3. Change the zoom options
    Select ‘File’, then ‘Print Preview’ on your browser and change the ‘Zoom’ from ‘Shrink to Fit’ to a percentage eg. 60%
