11:32pm on 7 May 19 The uni has been supposed to be providing me with timetables before semester starts and in a format easy for me to read for the past 4 years, they haven't managed it yet so what makes this any different? If they can't do it for one student when it is written in the TAS, they aren't going to manage it for everyone!

11:40pm on 22 Oct 18 The timetables are not clearly indicated in terms of rooming which causes issues in terms of what room your supposed to be in or even what building your lecture has been allocated to.

9:39pm on 18 Oct 18 I collected some feedback from some fellow students on my course, some have mentioned the timetable for the year not being available with enough notice to make childcare and work arrangements. One of our lecture halls was changed at the last minute from MH to MC which many view MC001 as the worst room as it is very cramped in there. It has also been a concern to some that they have to wait 3 hours in between lecture and seminar while others are in an earlier group, it would be fairer for the workshops to run parallel. The majority of the issue however seems to be more with equipment in the rooms. Panopto has failed to work numerous times and a lot of the computers in MCB12 don’t work, and the ones that do are incredibly slow.

10:56am on 17 Oct 18 It’s been quite frustrating having last minute room and time changes because of unavailable spaces, even more frustrating having to change rooms mid lecture because of double bookings of rooms!

8:56am on 8 Oct 18 The online timetable is not very user friendly, a simplified version would ensure students are in lectures on time and know where they are going. Having individual timetables or having lectures put on your canvas calender would be way more useful. We had one lecture in our first week that we didn't have a room for and one where 20 students had to sit on the floor as there weren't enough seats!! Surely rooms should be booked and when they are they should be big enough for the amount of students in the lecture.

6:28pm on 6 Oct 18 There are issues with the online timetable as it is not in a weekly form; so you have to view it and try to guess what class applies to what week, if it was provided by a weekly view it may be easier

10:31am on 6 Oct 18 The lack of a personal timetable on the mywlv app really bothers me. I found it very helpful and easier to use last year.

9:36am on 6 Oct 18 I believe we could go back to school days, where we had those diary sized books with each day informing of lesson, start time and finish. I strongly believe that making such an amendment would alleviate a seemingly ongoing confusion of where students are to be on a certain day. Also the communication between students and lectures must improve.

7:04pm on 5 Oct 18 Timetabling issues causes students to have problems attending the correct rooms for lectures and lab sessions. This problem should be rectified as soon as possible due to the fact we are final year students.

7:02pm on 5 Oct 18 It's really annoying that we still don't have a personal timetable on the mywlv app!!
