The TUKS TimeTable ASSISTANT is only intended to simplify the process of creating your TimeTable. It is a useful tool for generating TimeTables for any UP campus (or combinations campuses). However, note that care should be taken to confirm lecture times and groups with the official faculty TimeTable, available from UP. This tool is not officially supported by the University of Pretoria, it is your own responsibility to ensure that any timetable suggested by the tool is accurate. The University shall not be responsible for any inaccurate information provided.
