It’s Studiosity Symposium week and that means we announce new services, features, and open the floor to hear feedback for future service development from the people who matter most. Without doubt, the most heated topics were change management, student employability, and student care (domestic and international). Most anticipated? The student mobile app. Here's the photo-heavy recap.
Parents have an important role in supporting their kids through this time, but one of the best things you can do is to relax. Be supportive, rather than overbearing, and help them find a balance where they can take control of their own studies, but also have some relief when the pressure gets too much.
When it comes to getting help with an essay, many students don’t really know where to turn.
Especially for ESL students, or if you’re returning to study after many years - confidence in academic writing does not come easily.
If you’re lucky enough you might have peers, family members, or teachers who can provide a ‘second set of eyes’, but what can you do when that’s not an option, or when you want more external, professional help?
With the HSC Trials starting next month, now is the time to be getting serious about your study.

As an organization that has optimism for individuals and our species in our DNA, we went looking for an antidote to the cold sweats and may have found it in Matt Ridley’s The Rational Optimist.
It’s no secret that our network of incredible tutors love what they do.
Students see it every night, in every session and returned draft submission. The tutors' enthusiasm, encouraging tones and dedication to every unique student enquiry has often been described by students as 'above and beyond'.
But enjoying the job is not the only motivator, I have discovered. There are many reasons why academics, teachers, and professionals become online tutors. Here are some of the most prominent ‘whys’ from within our network.
Today's model of education delivery has remained largely unchanged for hundreds of years. Educational change is not entered into lightly, and rightly so - as a society we need to ensure the best for students, for teachers, for social and economic well-being. Nevertheless, it's clear now that employers, students, and their families in Australia’s knowledge-based economy are getting impatient. So we brought together experts from two leading universities and two leading secondary schools, to help shine a light on the future of formal learning.
