Semester Timetable- 

On your first week at CEU San Pablo, you will receive a draft timetable (as seen below). To avoid timetable clashes (and stress), try to choose units that are from the same year, such as picking all 3rd-year or all 4th-year units. Since there is no choice in your timetable, if you have a clash the only option is to drop the clashing unit and choose another unit. If this happens, don't forget to contact Murdoch University and update your Credit Transfer Form!

Understanding Your Draft Timetable-

On your draft timetable, on the left, you will see the units and their unit codes. On the right, you will see a calendar like a timetable. For all units at CEU San Pablo (except practical units), you are required to attend ALL of the classes as listed on the timetable. For units that have (P-A), (P-B), (P-C) or (P-D) after the unit code, this means that it is the practical class for a unit and you must choose one of these classes to attend. For example, for the unit 'DAR- Art Direction, you must attend the Thursday 11pm-1pm class and then one of the two practical classes. However, you must attend the same practical class every week so you are attending consistent classes.

My Draft Timetable

Enrolling in Units-

The first week of University started on the 4th of September 2017. This was mainly an introduction week and you will attend a few orientation seminars and receive your draft timetable etc. Classes (except practical classes) started on the 11th of September 2017. From this date until the enrollment date (on the 27th-28th of September 2017), all classes are purely trial classes so that people can try some different classes out and sort out issues such as timetable clashes. Attendance only was taken from after the 27-28th of  September.

My Final Timetable


There is a 75% attendance rate required for all of your units.

Public/Bank Holidays-

  • 12th October 2017 (Dia de la Hispanidad / Hispanic Heritage Day)
  • 1st October 2017 (Dia de Todos Los Santos /All Saints Day )
  • 9th October 2017 (Dia de la Almudena/ Day of Almudena )
  • 6th December 2017 (Dia de la Constitucion / Day of the Consitution)
  • 8th December 2017 (Dia de la Inmaculada / Day of the Immaculate)

Every class has a student that is the 'Student Representative' and this student is in control of speaking to the entire class and deciding on the date of the exam. There are two exam periods, a few days in late December (21st-22nd) and then a two week period in January (8th-19th). You won't know your exam dates until mid-semester unless your class decides earlier. Usually, because all your classes will be a mix of Exchange and Erasmus students there is a preference for the exams in to be in December rather than January so that people can get everything done before Christmas and not have to come back to uni in January.
