Customising the Studies Tab with 'Widgets'



What are Widgets?

Your Studies Tab is made from a selection of widgets - these display information about your studies, for example the modules you study. The aim of these widgets is to provide you with clickable links to the various school, course and module areas on studentcentral, as well as other relevant information.

You can customise your Studies Tab by moving or collapsing/expanding these widgets. You can also delete any you do not wish to see, and add others in.   

Below is a video how to customise your studies tab. Alternatively, please read the written instructions below the video.

Hold down your left mouse button and drag and drop the box into a different position on the page. A dotted outline will appear showing the space where the box can be dropped. Release your mouse button to drop the box into place.
