Everything you need to know about the UTSOnline upgrade...

What’s changed?

New look landing page

When you log in, your landing page will look a little different. The layout and colour scheme has been adapted to reflect more modern styling and to improve your experience when using mobile devices. With My Subjects now aligned to the left of the screen, you will always see this most used module at the top in mobile or tablet view. You may notice that some of your personal modules are no longer visible but you can add your favourite modules again by accessing the Add Module button on the top right of the screen.
