Studiosity

We understand our students lead busy lives, juggling work and study commitments, as well as family and personal ventures, and occasionally you need academic assistance after business hours. That’s why CQUniversity has introduced after-hours academic assistance with the Studiosity (previously YourTutor) service.

Studiosity is personalised, online help from an exclusively trained network of tutors, available free for all CQUni students. Studiosity gives you access to academic support when you don’t have access to your lecturer or on-campus academic assistance.

The service is available from Moodle. You will find Studiosity in the Support block of each Moodle unit.

How does the service work?

You can choose to drop off a file 24/7 and collect constructive general academic literacy feedback on structure, grammar, punctuation, spelling and referencing within 24 hours.

Alternatively, the online tutors are available 5 pm – midnight, Sunday to Friday.  Connect in real-time to expert tutors, waiting online to help you get ‘unstuck’.  Studiosity provides one-to-one chat, covering subjects like Essay Writing, Study Skills, Mathematics, Physics/Chemistry/Biology Accounting, Statistics, Micro/Macroeconomics and more.

Holiday hours

As 2018 comes to an end for many students, the opening hours of our Connect Live service will be changing, starting from 1st December.

Our Connect Live service is closed from December 15 to January 6.

All services will resume as normal on 1st February, 2019.
