Timetables and tutorials

Use the myTimetable tool to see your personal lecture schedule. You'll also see any tutorials, labs, or studio sessions that you've already signed up for.

The myTimetable tool shows the lecture times for all your courses, as well as the times for your chosen tutorials, labs, and studios.

You can also see your timetable in Pūaha, our student portal.

Tutorials, labs, and studios

If you haven’t signed up for a lecture or tutorial in the myAllocator tool, you won’t see it in myTimetable.

Academic timetables

The academic timetable spreadsheets contain the full teaching schedule for the relevant academic year. Lecture times are set first. Tutorials, labs, workshops, and studios are added as they are booked.

If your course doesn’t appear on the timetable, email info@vuw.ac.nz or call 0800 04 04 04.

Examination and assessment timetable

When you have officially scheduled final tests during the examinations period, you will be able to see them in your personal timetable as shown in Pūaha. You can't see your examination timetable via Student Records.

The mid-year examination/assessment timetable for 2024 is available now. The end-year timetable will be published around 28 August 2024.

How to read your timetable

Course Reference Number (CRN)

The CRN is a number unique to a course offered in any one year. It distinguishes between identical courses taught in different trimesters or different modes—for example, lecture and distance—or between different streams of the same course in a particular trimester.


Dates are named for the Monday of the first week to the Monday of the last week a course runs. For example, a course that is listed as running for “Wks of 11 Jul–15 Aug", will run from the week of Monday 11 July to the week of Monday 15 August.

Initials are used to show the days of the week: M = Monday, T = Tuesday, W = Wednesday, R = Thursday, F = Friday, S = Saturday, U = Sunday.


This column indicates the type of teaching for each course—lectures and tutorials.
