How to read the timetables
In the timetable, you can see what classes you have, the time slots, the locations, and the names of the lecturers. The timetable looks like a digital agenda, and every ‘block’ is one class.
The name of the class is the first line in the block. In the example below, this is ‘Business Communication 1’.
The time slot is on the second line. In this example, the class starts at 11.00 a.m. and finishes at 1.00 p.m. All classes (even the last class of the day) actually end 15 minutes earlier than indicated in the timetable, to give you enough time to be at the correct location for your next class on time. This example class will therefore end at 12:45 p.m.
The third line shows the class location, lecturer and group.
Location: First is the name of the building and next, the room number. The letter at the end gives an indication of the type of classroom, but is not relevant for finding your way. In this example, the class will take place in building R3, room 0.93. Hint: you can see which floor of the building you should be on from the room number. In this example, the room number starts with ‘0’, which means that the classroom is on the ground floor.
If you have an online activity, you will see ‘ONLINE + number’ in the timetable instead of a regular room number (for example: ONLINE14). You can ignore the number, and interpret this as an ‘online activity’, which means that you do not have to be present on campus because you can follow the class online from any location you like.
Lecturer: The abbreviation of the teacher’s name is in the middle of the third line. In this example, it is BONJ05. This is the abbreviation for Mr. J. Bonus.
Group: Your group code is at the right of the third line. In this example, it is 59_IB-IB14. In some cases, you will also see more group codes. This means that you will follow the class with multiple groups at the same time.
