Studiosity

Introducing Studiosity – 24/7 academic skills support for students

In the latest Student Experience Survey, you told us that you want ongoing services and support that will help you to be successful in your studies.

We heard you, and we’re pleased to announce that from Session 2, UOW is introducing Studiosity – a free online service that provides guidance and feedback on your academic skills, 24/7.

With Studiosity you’ll have on-demand and online access to friendly subject consultants to help you with core concepts around Maths, English, Science, Business, study skills and more.

How does Studiosity work?

Constructive writing feedback in less than 24 hours

Upload your written draft and in less than 24 hours a Studiosity consultant specialising in the English language will send it back with relevant comments, suggestions and encouragement for how you can improve your own work. This might include helping you understand an assignment question, provide advice on research skills, help you improve grammar or structure etc.

Connect Live for one-to-one help in real time

If you prefer to work through your questions with a real person, you can do that via an interactive classroom using chat, a collaborative whiteboard and file sharing.

How will Studiosity help you?

Studiosity can help you when you’re stuck or need some guidance on how to improve your work. It can also help increase your confidence with your study and writing too – in fact, 92% of students who use the service say they feel more confident after using Studiosity.

As the service is online, and on-demand, you can get the support you need, when you need it.
