Lectures, labs and tutorials

All courses have a lecture section. Some courses also require a lab section (for hands-on learning) or a tutorial section (for review and discussion of lecture material). These sections are linked.

To successfully register in a course with linked sections, you must register for the lab or tutorial section at the same time as you register for the lecture section.

In the UVic timetable, sections are coded as follows:

  • Lectures: A01, A02, etc.
  • Labs: B01, B02, etc.
  • Tutorials: T01, T02, etc.

If there is more than one section of a lecture, lab or tutorial, you can choose the one that best fits your timetable.


Course Reference Numbers

You'll need the five-digit Course Reference Number (CRN) to register for a course. If a course has lecture, lab and tutorial sections, you will need three CRNs (one for each section).

The CRNs are listed with the course details in the UVic timetable.
