How timetabling works

MUTTS (Monash University Timetable System)

Who needs to use MUTTS

The Monash University Timetable System (MUTTS) shows when all units are timetabled. It can help you choose units to avoid clashes and to plan your class times around other constraints, eg. work. We release the MUTTS timetable in early October to coincide with re-enrolment.

Students who have more complex timetabling needs will benefit from using MUTTS. The timetable within a year level and within a faculty will, in most cases, be clash-free. You may benefit most from using MUTTS if you:

  • have failed units and need to take units spanning several year levels where clashes are more likely
  • are doing a double degree and have a wide variety of cross-faculty unit options
  • have limited on-campus availability, perhaps due to work commitments. Check MUTTS before enrolling in units and again before using Allocate+ to select your class times.

Who doesn't need to use MUTTS

First year undergraduates will not need to use MUTTS. At this stage, you will generally use Allocate+ to enter preferences after enrolling. Some faculties will do this for you.

Off-campus students don't need to check the timetable in MUTTS, unless you have an on-campus component, (e.g. weekend school), as advised by your faculty.

When to use Allocate+

Allocate+ opens on specific dates so you can enter your preferred class activity times (tutorials, labs, lectures etc.). After closing, it sorts the preferences to give you a workable timetable, and reopens so you can make adjustments. Some faculties can't allow much timetable flexibility and create your timetable for you.

Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences students do not need to enter preferences in Allocate+ as your faculty will allocate all activities to your timetable. See Parkville timetable information.

Codes and abbreviations

It's important to understand the codes and abbreviations used in the Handbook, MUTTS and Allocate+.
