Enrolling in subjects
You must be formally enrolled in a subject to complete it.
Subjects can fill up quickly, so enrol in subjects as soon as enrolment opens for you.
When to enrol
If you’re new to your course, enrol as soon as you accept your offer. For more info, see commencing students.
When re-enrolment opens for you depends on your course:
- Standalone course: re-enrol from the date that enrolment opens for your faculty
- Course combined with Bachelor of Creative Intelligence and Innovation: re-enrol from the date that enrolment opens for the faculty that your course is combined with
- Combined course (except for Bachelor of Creative Intelligence and Innovation): re-enrol from the date of your course’s owning faculty. To check your course’s owning faculty, go to the handbook entry for your combined degree. The owning faculty is the faculty in the page banner above the degree name

Before you enrol
Before you enrol in subjects, take some time to:
Review your course
Look at your course structure, recommended sequence and completion requirements in the UTS Handbook so you know which subjects you need to enrol in (use the handbook from the year that you started your course).
If you course has electives or majors, use the UTS Handbook to research the kind of subjects you want to do as electives or subjects you need to do for your chosen major.
Think about your study load
Less than a full-time study load may affect your course duration and currency of knowledge when you graduate, Centrelink payments, travel concession, scholarship, and student visa requirements (international students only).
How to enrol in subjects
Make sure you enrol in subjects for all sessions:
- Summer (optional)
If your plans change later, you can make changes to your enrolment, keeping in mind the following important dates:
- Last day to enrol for the current session is the last day you can add a subject or make changes to your subject activities (such as swapping a class time)
- Census date for the current session is the last day to withdraw from a subject without academic or financial penalties
To enrol in subjects, log in to My Student Admin:
- In the ‘Personal’ tab, update your contact and personal details (make sure you always keep these details up-to-date)
- In the ‘Subjects’ tab, go to ‘Enrol/Plan subjects’
- Using the recommended sequence for your course (use the UTS Handbook entry for the year you started), select subjects for the Autumn, Spring and Summer (optional) sessions
- After you’ve selected all of your subjects, click ‘enrol’, then ‘confirm enrolment’
You can also follow the video below:
Hi everyone. In this video, I will show you how to enrol in subjects and choose your major. Let’s get started!
Go to your My Student Admin, log in with your student ID and password, once you log in, you will see this home page. Click on your Subjects tab.
And you will see your currently enrolled subjects. In this example, we’re going to enrol in subjects for the following year.
Firstly, click on Enrol in subject, save the declaration form, and it will take you to your study plan page.
If you can’t find any subjects to enrol like in this example, don’t worry. Most of the time, you just need to add your major or elective subjects on your study plan and your subjects will appear here.
If you are not sure about which subject to enrol, or what major or stream you want to do, you can click on Course program to view the structure of your degree in the UTS Handbook.
In this example, you can view the second year subjects and the sequences here.
Okay, let’s go back to the study plan.
To add a major or subject, please click on Choose button.
These are the options you can choose from. Decide which one to do, and click on Add to Study Planner. You can confirm the details of the major or subjects on the right.
Please note that, depending on your course, once you save anything to your study plan, you may not be able to change them, so be careful and do your research on the UTS Handbook before saving.
If you are okay with the option you selected, click on Save to Study Plan.
Now your new major and subjects are on your study plan!
Subjects showing Enrol are available for enrolment.
Subjects with a Planned status are NOT available for selection. It means either the subject is full, not offered, or you don’t currently meet its pre-requisites. You can check why it’s not available by clicking on Unavailable, or Requisites information link.
If you have been following the recommended subject sequence, but the subject you need to enrol into is a core subject and full, send an eRequest to the Student Centre for further assistance.
Okay, let’s select and enrol in subjects.
Check the tick box Enrol for the subject you wish to enrol into. This will highlight the subject in yellow.
If the subject is running in more than one session, like this one, it will display a drop down of available sessions. Select the session you wish to take the subject.
When only one availability is appearing, it means the subject is only available in the specific session, or other sessions are already full.
You may see both Block and Internal modes come up. The internal mode means it is a standard mode subject, and the subject is offered throughout the semester. The block mode means it is an intensive study mode and normally offered within a shorter period.
When you have chosen your subjects for enrolment, click Enrol to continue the process.
Any selected subjects without issues will appear in yellow, but if there is any error, the system will give you a reason why you can’t enrol in it.
In this example, you don’t currently meet the pre-requisites.
Once you confirm the potential enrolment list, click on Confirm enrolment button.
Alright, now you’re enrolled!
Repeat this process and complete your enrolment as per the recommended structure in the handbook.
We also strongly recommend you to enrol for the whole year, including both Autumn and Spring sessions. For example, If you leave the Spring enrolment late, many subjects may become full and you may not be able to choose a subject you want.
For more information, please visit the Enrolling in subjects page on the UTS website, or contact UTS Student Centre.
Timetable and class allocation
Build your timetable
Before you build your timetable, you’ll need to enrol in subjects for all sessions.
You can also follow the video below:
Hello everyone. In this video, I will show you how to read, choose, and view your timetable. Let’s get started!
This video will assume that you have already enrolled into your subjects for the upcoming sessions. To check this, you can visit the Current Enrolments section within the Subjects tab on your My Student Admin.
Go to your myTimetable, choose the appropriate year, login with your student ID and password, and once you log in you will see this home page.
Now that you are in your myTimetable, you will be able to see all the subjects you are enrolled into in the upcoming calendar year.
Such as these subjects for Autumn and Spring. Under each of these subjects you may see multiple activities, some having lectures, tutorials, sections and seminars. Lots of subjects will have a variety of types and numbers of activities listed. You need to make sure that you have a time allocated under each of these activities.
If you do have a subject that has a section, you will need to decide on a section, and choose one option for every kind of class listed under that section. A subject coordinator may decide to implement sections for a number of different reasons, such as making sure the same students are on campus on the same day to help with group work.
In this example if we were to choose section 1, denoted by SC01, we wouldn’t be able to choose any of the times shown under section 2.
Your myTimetable can show a lot of information, so it will be best to get a good idea of what everything means.
First let’s take a look at the status bar just underneath your name.
This status bar will give us a quick breakdown of all the activities you have allocated, and how many you still have remaining. you should aim for this ‘Not allocated’ section to be zero by the end of video.
Now let's take a look at one of these subjects.
Above the name of the subject you will see a code that gives us some helpful information into the subject you are choosing a timetable for.
The first five digits in this code will show a code unique to that subjec, after that you see SPR, this signifies that you are enrolled into the subject for the Spring session, but this can also show AUT for Autumn, or SUM for Summer.
After this you will see a letter U. This signifies the campus in which the subject is taking place. Here you might see either U for Ultimo or MP for Moore Park.
And at the end you see a letter S. This signifies the subject’s study mode. In this case it shows us S which means this is a standard mode subject that will usually run the full length of a session. You may also see D for distance or online subjects, or B for block mode subjects, which are often run in shorter, more intensive study periods.
Now let's take a look at choosing a time for the Tutorial for the subject Managing People and Organisations (depending upon available subject in test environment).
Now that you have selected the tutorial, on the right it now shows us all the available times this class runs. It will give us the activity number, day, time, campus, location during session, duration, and any additional notes.
In this example there are a number of times available for this tutorial, and you can choose from any of them that show select. In some scenarios you may automatically get allocated into a time, usually if there is only one spot available.
In addition to seeing the message select, you may also see the button say full, indicating that the class has reached its capacity, or Clash, which means that the class is running at the same time as another once of your allocated subjects.
Let's choose this first available time.
In myTimetable, you can also view your timetable allocations in a calendar view. To do this click on the Timetable button in the top right.
This will show us all your allocated activities in a weekly breakdown. You can use the filter classes button to only show classes for a given session, or use the arrow buttons to jump through your calendar on a week by week basis.
By repeating the steps in this tutorial you should be able choose times for all of your classes for the upcoming year.
You can now also use this section to add your UTS timetable to your upcoming personal calendar.
