Check for timetable clashes

Check for timetable clashes

It is important to check that your preferred modules do not clash in your draft personal timetable.

Look at the draft personal timetable within the Portico module selection task. If you have a clash (i.e. two teaching events happening at the same time where there are no alternative event times you can attend for either module) you must select a different module. Your department may be able to provide additional information to help you understand your timetable. If there is a clash please check with your department before making your selections.

Clashing events will be highlighted with a red border. Do not submit your saved module selections if you have a clash. Change the module selected, save and re-check the timetable.

For more information, take a look at our timetabling FAQs.
