Class registration

Students Support Class registration

What is class registration?

Once you’ve enrolled, eStudent will be used to register in classes and produce a personalised class timetable for your subjects.
You'll still need to plan your class timetable by going to the Timetable website and using a timetable planner to map out your timetable before registering for your classes in eStudent.

How does it work?

After enrolling in your subjects, eStudent will automatically register you into some classes where there are no choices e.g. if there is one lecture.

You'll then be able to select and register in your preferred tutorials, workshops and practicals and produce a personalised class timetable.

For some classes, if the class is already full, you will have the option of going on a waitlist. You can then be allocated to a class if a place becomes available.

Who does the class registration process apply to?

Students studying on-campus in Townsville, Cairns, Mt Isa, Mackay and Thursday Island – excluding students studying Medicine, Dentistry, Veterinary Science or Pharmacy.

For students studying Medicine, Dentistry, Veterinary Science or Pharmacy, your class registrations for core subjects will be managed by your College. All you need to do is enrol in your subjects in eStudent. However, you will still need to register in classes for elective subjects separately.

For students who are not able to enrol online via eStudent, in most cases, you will still be able to register for your classes via eStudent once your enrolment is processed.*

*Students who are on the inter-campus mobility program from Singapore will not be able to enrol or register for classes via eStudent. Contact your Divisional Enrolment Team for help.


Check the class registration schedule for opening and closing dates. 

The dates and times for opening class registrations in eStudent will be staggered according to study periods and Colleges. You will receive an email notification when you are able to register for classes/produce your personalised timetable.

It’s a good idea to register for your classes as soon as registration for your subjects opens so you have the best opportunity at securing the classes you want.

Class registration closes at the end of the second week of the Study Period.
