I think that would be pretty complicated to do with Tablix. Tablix deals
with groups, not individual students.

The only idea I currently have goes like this:

Make one "class" for each course a student may choose. Then somehow
extract from the choices students have made all combinations of courses.
 Now you know events for which courses should not be scheduled at the
same time and you can put conflicts between those classes.

For example: you have courses A, B, C, D and three students.

First student chose A and C, second A and D and third B, C.

Now you should put conflicts between following classes:

A, C
A, D
B, C
