Studiosity Usage

Please note:

In the 2022/23 academic year (1st August 2022 - July 31st 2023), you can upload up to 8 samples of work of up to 5,000 words each (or a combination of 8 submissions and chats with Connect Live).

This increase in word count for the Online Writing Feedback service (from 2,500 to 5,000 words) is being trialled and reviewed on a monthly basis.

We cannot grant anyone additional submissions to Studiosity, so plan how you can best use these 8 feedback opportunities across the academic year.
