What is Tutorial Registration?
Tutorial Registration is how you put together your timetable at UWS. For each unit you are studying, we will give you a list of class times that are available and you can register into the one you want to attend using PlatformWeb. As there are only limited places in each class Tutorial Registration works on a first in, first served basis.
You'll need to make sure you are enrolled in all of your units in MyStudentRecords (MySR) or you won't be able to register for your tutorials.
What is a tutorial?
Most units have different types of classes that you will need to attend each week. These may include practicals, seminars and workshops, as well as tutorials. In online Tutorial Registration, the term 'tutorial' refers to all of these classes. For example, you may also need to use online Tutorial Registration to register your attendance in lectures, practicals or workshops.
Tutorials are small groups of about 25 students and are about one or two hours in duration. They provide a forum to discuss and debate the lecture materials and have an emphasis on student-teacher interaction and class participation.
Most tutorials have compulsory attendance requirements. If you miss more than two tutorials in a teaching session, you may be at risk of failing the requirements of that unit. Check the unit outline for each of your units to see their attendance requirements.
How do I complete Tutorial Registration?
To get to online Tutorial Registration you will need to log into the MyUWS Student Portal using your MyUWSAccount username (your student ID number) and password. Then click on PlatformWeb in the left hand side menu.
To register we recommend you use a Windows based PC (PlatformWeb should also run on a Mac using Internet Explorer).
Spring/2H Tutorial Registration opening times will be available closer to Spring Session.
How do I register?
When Tutorial Registration opens for your School, you'll need to log in to PlatformWeb through MyUWS and select a class time out of the options available.

Units that do not require Tutorial Registration
Most students will need to register for some or all of their enrolled units each session. If you’re not sure if you should register for your classes, read the notes at the top of the timetable page for each of your units.
Groups that will definitely not need to register for classes using online Tutorial Registration are:
- Some postgraduate business courses (generally aligned to Quarter sessions)
You can change your tutorial selection through PlatformWeb up to five times by simply clicking on another selection. If you have extenuating circumstances that requires you to register for a tutorial that is already full, then you will need to complete the Request to Change Tutorial form and submit it to your School.
Face to face help registrating for tutorials will be available in computer labs during Tutorial Registration week.
