Each student is given their own personalised timetable based on the modules chosen before the start of term.

The timetable is available is available through the Keele Learning Environment (KLE) and the Keele App.

A complete list of all term time dates can be found here.

During term time, the academic day runs from 9.00am to 6.00pm Monday to Friday - we are making full use of the teaching day, including on Wednesdays, to allow us to adhere to social distancing requirements on campus. On occasions, an activity may run from 6.00pm to 7.00pm; this will be a small number of activities.

We are also looking to introduce staggered start and end times in the timetable so that there’s plenty of space for moving around buildings, for example starting some on-campus teaching sessions at 30 minutes past the hour, rather than on the hour, e.g. 10:30am.

Personalised timetables will be made available mid-September onward.

Please note that changes may take place during September and October.

Combined Honours degrees

Combined Honours degrees are degrees that are taken in two different subjects, resulting in an X and Y degree title, for example History and Politics. If you are taking a Combined Honours programme, these will be the two subjects you applied for.

Single Honours degrees

Single Honours degrees are degrees that are taken wholly or predominantly in one subject (referred to as your Single Honours subject).

Timetable clashes will be resolved before teaching begins so please don’t worry; however, if you still have concerns about a clash, then please contact your school.
