Studiosity service

Studiosity is an online service for all Birkbeck undergraduate and postgraduate students on taught programmes. It gives you assignment feedback and access to live online tutorials.

Studiosity is completely free and always available. You can use the service up to six times if you study part-time, and eight times if you study full-time, in each academic year. It can be used for either writing feedback or live online tutorials, or a combination of both.

Last academic year, Birkbeck students used Studiosity over 8500 times and 94% rated it 4 out of 5 or better.

What Studiosity provides

  • Writing feedback on assignments before you submit them, provided within 24 hours by a specialist in academic writing - focusing on key elements such as structure, language, grammar and punctuation. The feedback does not cover subject-level content, but will help you get your assignment into shape so your ideas can shine through. You can submit a sample of your writing up to 2500 words.
  • 30-minute online tutorials (Connect Live) where you will work through an academic problem with a tutor until you figure it out. Subjects areas covered are:
    • English language issues
    • maths, biology, chemistry, physics, economics and business studies (all at foundational level)
    • basic, first-year undergraduate statistics, economics and accounting
    • Connect Live tutors will also help you with academic referencing if you can tell them what style your lecturer would like you to use.
  • Studiosity helps with academic writing and problem solving. It is not a proofreading service nor a substitute for attending online learning activities and making the most of the support offered by academic, learning development and administrative staff.

How to use Studiosity

You can access the service by selecting the 'Studiosity' link in My Birkbeck. You can also download the Studiosity app on Google Play or Apple App Store.

To make the best use of your Studiosity account, try to upload a draft of your assignment 48 hours or more before your deadline. That way, you will have an opportunity to implement the valuable advice and feedback you will receive.
