Semester 2 2021

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Some information on this page has been amended due to operational changes made in light of changes to government social distancing regulations around COVID-19

The following amendments have been made to this page:

  • Update 12 Aug: the ACT is in a 7 day lock down.  There will be no classes on campus from 5pm Thu 13 Aug to  5pm Thu 20 Aug 2021.  
  • Teaching room capacities for semester 2 2021: The Semester 2 2021 timetable has been built using room capacities of 100%, in line with ANU directives and current government advice.  This return to full capacity will take effect from 26 July 2021 (week 1 of Semester 2).  Please be aware, ANU will adhere to government directives, as they change, with our changing COVID environment, so changes in the teaching and learning environment, may result in timetabling and teaching delivery changes.  

The release of the final Semester 2 2021 timetable is Mon 17 May 2021

NB.  The Final Timetable is subject to a higher degree of changes than in 'standard' operating cycles, due to changes driven by COVID directives.  The timetabling team, together with our colleagues in schools and colleges, have been working hard to process large amounts of changes due to the change to 100% room capacities and move to bring more Sem 2 activities onto campus that initially requested.  Please be aware that these changes will continue over the next few weeks.  Please check your timetable regulary for updates.
