For details of days, times and rooms consult the timetables webpage.

You should have selected a practical class enrollment. It will not particularly matter if you do not attend the practical you are enrolled in as practical attendance is not compulsory, but should be useful to you. If you do not have a class, or if you wish to change one, you should see the enrollment operators in the E7B courtyard during the first two weeks of the semester. Thereafter you should go to the Student Centre.
