Part of your student services ecosystem

From 24/7 writing feedback for all students, to promoting a culture of integrity, to peer-to-peer connection at scale - universities that add Studiosity as one part of their student services want to show results for their staff and students. Here's what they have found.


Academic success

0.28-0.99 ↑ GPA

Macquarie University
(Yuceozsoy, 2017)

8% ↑ course average

The University of Adelaide
(Levy, 2020)

0.12-0.44 ↑ GPA

Western Sydney University
(Gill, 2019)

0.92-1.63 ↑ GPA

James Cook University
(Lynch, 2017)

“Very sure that students who seek help do better." Based on a one-way ANOVA test, where P = 0.007, N = 112,465. (Lawrence, 2020)
79-84% of students stated they now better understand how to write academically (Devlin & McKay, 2018)
“Students benefit from this continuous, formative pre-submission feedback on academic writing.” (Brodie, Sachs, Tisdell, 2020)

Personal wellbeing, a comparison of the UK student population, Studiosity users and
the UK population (opposite, top). *** From HEPI / Advance HE, 2019 ** ONS aged 20-24, 2017-18 (Thomas, 2019)


"Overall, survey respondents from groups that have poorer experiences and outcomes are over-represented in the survey of Studiosity users compared to the UK population, for example in relation to age, ethnicity, disability and proxy indicators of socio-economic status  - older students, female students, BME students, students who have declared a disability, first-in-family, students who have difficulty finding a quiet place to work, students who are carers, who are employed, and those with commutes of over 45 minutes each way to campus.

"This reinforces the positive benefits of the service to achieving goals relating to widening access and participation, teaching excellence, and institutional league tables." (Thomas, 2019)

“The Studiosity tutors have made me more confident when writing, and have also made me aware of various ways to improve my personal style of writing and communication skills more generally. This improved confidence has improved my wellbeing, as I stress less about essays than before my university provided access to Studiosity.”

Student qualitative response (Thomas, 2019)


6% ↑ retention

Curtin University
(Hulcup, 2020)

44% more likely to stay enrolled

La Trobe University
(Dollinger, Cox, Eaton, Vanderlelie, Ridsdale, 2020)

16.45% ↑ retention

CQUniversity University
(Veraa, 2019)

Academic Integrity

Giving students the tools to make better choices
The findings suggest that Studiosity positively impacted students, using seven key areas of plagiarism - feelings, behaviour, attitudes, intentions, skills, awareness, knowledge. (Devlin & McKay, 2018)

"Academic skills and study support services such as those provided by Studiosity should be actively promoted to students. The positive impact of the online study services offered by Studiosity underscore the importance of such services in efforts to minimise and prevent plagiarism."

Students are more confident, and do better,
because it's their own work and learning.

of students were satisfied in a set of 14,861 feedback interactions. (Brodie, Sachs, Tisdell, 2020)


stated they have referred peers to Studiosity. (Devlin & McKay, 2018)

"Studiosity users were more satisfied with their course overall and in relation to their assessment and feedback than the average respondents to the NSS survey in England. These findings are particularly significant in light of the demographic composition of survey respondents, as particular groups who have poorer experiences and outcomes are over-represented." (Thomas, 2019)

"The increase in Course Weighted Average for students who used Studiosity compared to those who didn’t
was statistically significant." For students who used Studiosity: 6.13 points higher for Equity students; 4.75 points higher for international students; 5.76 points higher for students from low-SES backgrounds; 14.59 points higher for Aboriginal and TSI students.

Curtin University (Hulcup, 2019)

International students are more likely to have changed behaviour around academic literacy and integrity after using Studiosity.

(Devlin & McKay, 2018)

Greatest GPA gains were amongst students with lower entry rank from high school.

James Cook University (Lynch, 2017)

Low-SES, commencing, and regional-remote more likely to be users.

The University of Adelaide (Levy, 2020)

Significant use by mature and disadvantaged students users.
