Troubleshooting for online resources

Massey University students use several online tools as part of their academic experience. The following reference guides will help with your course planning and study commitments.

Student Portal quick reference guides

The Student Portal is the hub for all your academic needs and study resources. Find out how to view your progress towards your qualification and learn how to create a personalised timetable.

Personalised timetable


Create a personalised timetable in the Student Portal

Creating a personalised timetable is useful when planning your course and study commitments. You can compare your timetable of enrolled courses with courses you're considering. This will help avoid timetable clashes before changing or enrolling in extra courses.

To view a timetable for a particular semester, you need to submit at least one course for that semester. To do this you will need to select a course and complete the enrolment process for that semester in the portal.

To load courses onto your timetable, follow these five steps:

  1. Log in to the Student Portal
  2. Click on 'Timetable'
  3. Select the relevant semester tab, if applicable, and click on 'Search for courses'.
  4. A pop-up window will display. Enter the course code or name and click 'Search'. Mode and Location are optional search fields.

      
  5. Under 'Results' check the box next to the course(s) title and click the 'Show in timetable' button.
    The course(s) will be listed in the 'Class time requirements' section. Any clashes will be shown in the 'Timetable clashes' section below.

      
  6. To save the non-enrolled courses to the timetable, click the 'Save changes' button. You can remove the non-enrolled courses from your timetable at any time by clicking the 'Remove (course code)' button.
  7. Repeat steps five and six to add more courses to your timetable.
