About: James Cook University ranked in the top 2% of universities in the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU).
Why Studiosity? Studiosity is used at the University as a targeted equity strategy to address retention, provide study support in peak periods, and contribute to a positive student experience. It is a complementary support program to extend the reach of JCU's award-winning holistic student support system, 'The Learning Centre'.
“Those GPA figures show us that this is really making sure that students are passing. It adds to a supportive learning environment that students know that we provided this service to support their success. (...) We know that the constructs of retention and success are commonly held to be positively correlated to the students sense of belonging."
Dr Andrea Lynch, Learning, Teaching and Student Engagement, James Cook University at the Universities UK Conference, March 2017

"The review I got back was very thorough and also positive. It's not only good to know what my weaknesses are but also what I'm good at. This was the second draft I've uploaded and each time I get it back I feel that I improve my essay tenfold (and not just a little bit each time). Extremely helpful, very happy :)"
