Tutorial Registration


What is Tutorial Registration?

Tutorial Registration is how you choose your tutorials (and other classes) and put together your timetable at Western Sydney University. Allocate+ is the online system used to complete this process.

Tutorial Registration is completed in one of three ways, depending on the units and sessions that you’re enrolled in, as well as the time at which you are completing the Tutorial Registration process.

  • Preference Selection (Autumn, Spring, Summer, some 1H and some 2H units, College Terms)
    During the preference selection period, you will be asked to select your preferred tutorial (and other class) times, using a preference system. It's as easy as listing the tutorial times you prefer for each unit, in order from first preference to last. The unit details will tell you how many preferences you will need to enter for each unit. Units that require you to select preferences will have (PREFERENCE) listed next to the activity group.
  • Self-Allocation (Quarters, Sydney City sessions, some 1H and some 2H units)
    For Quarters, Sydney City sessions, some 1H and some 2H units, Tutorial Registration is completed on a first-in, first-served basis. You will need to select a Tutorial (and other class) times for each unit. When you select a class time, you will be allocated to that class. Units that require you to select classes will have (SELECT) listed next to the activity group.
  • Manual Allocation
    For a small number of units, your school will manually allocate your Timetable for you. In this case, you are not required to enter preferences, or select your tutorial times. Your School will advise you if manual allocation applies to your units.

Refer to the ‘Tutorial Registration Key Dates’ below, to know when you can enter your preferences or select your timetable.

You'll need to make sure you are enrolled in all of your units in MyStudentRecords (MySR) or you won't be able to register for your tutorials. Please allow up to 2hrs for enrolment changes you make within My Student Records to display within the Tutorial Registration system (Allocate+).

Important information for The College tutorial registration

The health, safety and wellbeing of staff and students remains our number one priority. During Term 1, 2021, all lectures will remain online, however, we are planning for some tutorials and practicals to return to campus in a safe way.

When reviewing your classes, you will notice that some classes have a room attached, these classes will take place on campus, other classes will have the campus listed as ‘ONLINE’, and no room indicated, these classes will take place virtually. If you would prefer an on-campus class, you should rank the activity with the room allocated as a higher preference.

Unfortunately, we are unable to guarantee your preference as it will depend on overall class availability.

Note: After your timetable is complete, if you have been allocated to an on-campus class and not able to attend due to an underlying health condition, please contact your First Year Experience Coordinator to discuss the options available to you.

What is a tutorial?

Most units have different types of classes that you will need to attend each week. These may include practicals, seminars and workshops, as well as tutorials. In online Tutorial Registration, the term 'tutorial' refers to all of these classes. For example, you may also need to use online Tutorial Registration to register your attendance in lectures, practicals or workshops.

Tutorials are small groups of about 25 students and are about one or two hours in duration. They provide a forum to discuss and debate the lecture materials and have an emphasis on student-teacher interaction and class participation.

Most tutorials have compulsory attendance requirements. If you miss more than two tutorials in a teaching session, you may be at risk of failing the requirements of that unit. Check the unit outline for each of your units to see their attendance requirements.

How do I complete Tutorial Registration?

Tutorial Registration is completed online. Log into Allocate+ (see the relevant link for tutorial registration on the right side of this page or, if on a mobile see below) using your WesternAccount username (your student ID number) and password.

Units that don't require Tutorial Registration

Most students will need to register for some or all of their enrolled units each session. If you're not sure if you should register for your classes, read the notes at the top of the timetable page for each of your units.

Some postgraduate business units (generally those taught in Quarters) will not need to register for classes using online Tutorial Registration.
