Trouble signing in to My Timetable

You require a valid LJMU account to sign in to view your personal timetable. My Timetable uses Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) for authentication. Signing in to My Timetable will require your username: username@ljmu.ac.uk and your password.

If you are able to sign in to other ADFS authenticated services such as Office 365 and Canvas and not My Timetable, please contact us here.

If you do not have a LJMU username, you are unsure of the password, or it has expired, please use the My Account pages to activate you account or reset your password.

You also need to have either enrolled or completed on line registration.

What are Personalised Student Timetables?

Where programme and modules allow, students will be able to access personalised timetable giving them access to their teaching sessions in calendar form. This will be updated and students can download this to calendars such as Google or Outlook. If sessions change, timetables will also be updated. A link to the personalised timetable system is here, and is matched against student’s own personal details.

  1. There is a valid reason for the change
  2. There is space for you in your preferred group
  3. The change must be permanent
  4. You have been given permission by the module leader

You should then complete the change request form here and the Timetabling Team will process your request if permission is in place. You will be notified of receipt via email, and when the change request is complete it will be confirmed by an email and will also appear on your personalised timetable.

I want to change a Module / Course / Programme

You cannot do this via the timetabling process.

This process is just to change groups within your existing module or programme.

If you need to discuss any other changes to your module or programme then please do contact your Programme Leader and/or personal tutor who will be able to give you advice. The deadline for any changes to option modules needs to be complete by the end of Teaching Week 2 – please also consult the Academic Calendar.
