FAQs

What kind of help does Studiosity give?

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 

Will I get help understanding my course requirements?

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.

Will Studiosity proofread my work?

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).

Will I be getting help from AI?

No, the help you receive is from real, thinking and feeling human beings
