Update your IT skills

Computers are a vital part of daily life at university – especially if you are studying at a distance. There is a lot of technology the university makes available to support your learning – from enrolling in classes using WES (Web Enrolment System) to building your timetable using MUTTS (Monash University Timetable System) to submitting assignments in MUSO.

As an off-campus student today you keep in touch with tutors and fellow students via MUSO Opens in a new window (Monash University Studies Online). Online communication makes it easier to study off-campus and manage other life commitments. You'll get important messages via your student email account. So it's essential that you set up your Monash computer account as soon as you are enrolled.
