Use this option when you're working on an essay or assignment (or any piece of writing) and would like to get feedback on how to improve your academic writing
Your document will be looked at by trained people who will provide comments on your language, structure, flow, and use of sources.
Upload your document to Studiosity any time of day or night, and they will send it back to you in less than 24 hours with detailed feedback on how you can improve your writing. Simply click 'Submit your document' from your Studiosity dashboard and follow the prompts.
Stuck on a question you need specialist help to answer? The Connect Live service is the best way of getting help in a wide range of subjects including maths, chemistry, physics, business studies and more.
To connect live with a person who can help you work through your question, click on the 'Connect now' button on your Studiosity account homepage.
When you connect live for a session, Studiosity will provide direction, guidance, feedback, support, and prompts to help you to get ‘unstuck’. Because getting stuck and overcoming it is part of learning. Studiosity won't rewrite or proofread the work but will provide a feedback summary
If you have a question that specifically relates to a course you're studying - such as module requirements, assessment dates or marking criteria, you will need to speak to your tutor or module leader.
Once you're clear on your course requirements, that's when Studiosity can help you. Studiosity is designed to help you develop essential academic skills in a wide variety of areas including essay/report writing, maths, science, assignment research and more.
Studiosity does not re-write or proofread the work for you. The feedback you receive will include a summary pointing out the strengths and weaknesses in your work, suggestions on how to improve your structure, examples of common errors you might be making, and an assessment of whether your work is appropriate to the task set (e.g. different writing styles for a speech vs a persuasive essay vs a screenplay).
No, the help you receive is from real, thinking and feeling human beings
