Lecture and Practical Timetable for 2017

This page is under active development. Come back soon!

Visit the web-based interactive 2017 lecture timetable checker to check out subject combinations and lecture clashes based on this year's draft.

Please also check the provisional 2017 venue allocations


This page shows the definitive lecture and practical timetable for 2017. Please revisit the page from time to time, as the timetable is sometimes changed early in the year.

Date of first release : 2017/01/20 (Some modifications will have been made after that.)
Date of this release : 2017/03/06

Notes:

- XHS 3M (isiXhosa MT) is still timetabled internally by the School of Languages.

- Subjects marked with *** have timetables that may have to be adjusted once registration is complete.

The subjects where there are changes of times from the 2016 timetable are marked "TIME" below. It is hoped that all these changes have been highlighted correctly.

A web page at https://scifac.ru.ac.za/timetable/changes.htm (also under review) gives further details of the changes.

The venues shown here are provisional; the final choice may have to take into account fluctuations in class sizes not anticipated at the time this timetable was drawn up. A more easily readable listing of the provisional venues can be found at https://scifac.ru.ac.za/timetable/venues.htm

It is worth pointing out that the allocation of large classes to venues is a critical constraint on the timetable. As a result, some classes are held in what may appear to be antisocial times. The Timetable Committee is unlikely to be sympathetic to requests to change these.

In reading this timetable, note that groups like Tut{7,8},{9,10} or Prac{7,8,9} denotes alternative double period tutorial or afternoon long laboratory practical times. These are subject to change, depending on the exact distribution of students who register for a course, and are shown here only as a guide. Single period tutorials are arranged by most departments at a selection of times to suit the students and staff involved in the course, and are in general not shown here, or are marked as {Tuts} in the cases where the tutorial days are already known.

Several subjects, notably Accounting 1, Economics 1, Information Systems 201, Management 1, Psychology 1, Sociology 1, Statistics 1D and Theory of Finance are offered in alternative slots, as the classes are too large to be accommodated into any of the existing lecture rooms at one time. A group like [1,2] denotes alternative lecture times of this sort.

It is the responsibility of students to ensure that their planned and proposed curricula do not contain any clashes, not only for the current year of study, but also for the years ahead. Attention is drawn to General Rule G6.2 of the University Calendar. Each year some students complain when they discover that the timetable for the next year will not suit them, claim that they "have not been told", and ask that the timetable be modified to accommodate their lack of forward planning. Such requests cannot be met.

In reading this timetable the numbers in and out of brackets refer to periods which are at the following times:

    Period 1: 07:45 to 08:30         Period 2:  08:40 to 09:25
    Period 3: 09:35 to 10:20         Period 4:  10:30 to 11:15
    Period 5: 11:25 to 12:10         Period 6:  12:20 to 13:05
    Period 7: 14:15 to 15:00         Period 8:  15:10 to 15:55
    Period 9: 16:05 to 16:50         Period 10: 17:00 to 17:45
