Undergraduate Psychology students need to register for laboratories and tutorials online.
All lab and tutorial enrolments for first, second and third year Psychology units must be made through the University's Class Allocation System (CAS).
The School of Psychology is not directly involved in the administration of CAS. You should consult the CAS web site for any updates regarding the schedule of events and for help sources in the event of technical difficulties.
Where possible, after hour laboratory and tutorial classes will be available for 1st - 3rd year units, after 4pm, on selected weekdays. The actual time and day will be available on CAS closer to the start of the semester.
If CAS does not allocate you to a tutorial or lab class, or allocates you to a class that is not suitable, please follow these instructions:
1. Log in to CAS and add or move yourself to a more suitable group that has available seats. We encourage you to do this prior to the end of Week 1 of Semester. However, you will be able to change your tutorial/lab allocation yourself on CAS up until the end of Week 2 of Semester.
2. If no suitable spaces are available, you can post a request on the relevant Lab Swap Forum discussion board, asking if there are any other students willing to swap. You will find a discussion board for each psychology Semester 2 unit in the "Psychology - Lab Swap Forum" unit on your Community page in LMS.
3. If by Week 1 of Semester you have not been able to find a suitable tutorial/lab you can make an application to the School of Psychology requesting a swap. You will need to:
- complete the School's "Application for Change of CAS Group Allocation" form
- provide supporting evidence of your situation
- provide a printed copy of your CAS allocation timetable
We will accept forms on Thursday of Week 1 of Semester. All applications will be reviewed on the Friday of Week 1 and an email sent once changes have been made asking students to check their allocations in CAS. We are limited in the changes we can make (based on capacity), and will therefore not be able to accommodate all requests, so we encourage students to continue to attempt to change themselves on CAS. Please note, if you have submitted a form requesting a change and then manage to change yourself, we ask that you contact us immediately to withdraw your request.
4. You must attend the class that you were allocated until you have been able to officially swap on CAS.
