Studydrive: The online social media platform that supports your learning
It is the end of term, and we are all struggling with the onslaught of academic work. This feels almost impossible to balance with other commitments, Christmas and university life. Personally, this term has been incredibly busy from juggling the second year of my engineering degree to positions such as careers director for Warwick Engineering Society, faculty of STEM representative and also a student blogger. This has made it hard to always prioritise my studies and at times I have fell behind. This is becoming more of a reality among students with the transition to online learning. However, there is hope in an online study platform called Studydrive!
Studydrive is a platform in which you can share your study notes while downloading other’s! These notes can be shared anonymously in the form of lecture notes, revision notes, and flashcards. The app also has a strong community aspect in which you can join various group chats to connect with other students from your university, and those with common interests such as Netflix, fitness and careers.
By uploading your study notes, you will be able to earn rewards from other students downloading them. The platform is also great if you are stuck on a certain concept as many students will have explained the concept or question in a simpler way. On the platform you can either be a course expert or general user. The great thing about working Studydrive is that you will also improve your grades as you will want to make your notes even better.
If you sign up as a course expert, you will be a representative for the platform at your university and should actively upload your documents. This is very quick and easy to do, so would only take about a minute after each lecture. In return, you could earn up to £500 a term and you will earn more by encouraging users onto the platform using your referral link. This is an amazing job opportunity, especially during the pandemic, and you will be paid for something you are already doing – studying!
On the other hand, general users are still able to upload their study notes but instead of money they will receive credits. These credits can be accumulated throughout your time at university and can be exchanged for a whole host of prizes. Most notably an iPad with Apple pencil and 32GB of storage. The main difference between being a general user and course expert is that you don’t have to promote the platform to others at your university. Having said that, either is a great opportunity to earn amazing benefits. To become a course expert, sign up here: https://www.studydrive.net/en/be-a-course-expert?ref=1880507
On top of these two roles, a university tuition fee competition is currently running. If you sign up as a general user before the end of December, you will be entered into a competition draw to win half of your tuition fees (£4500) in cash!

The platform is free to sign up for and has helped me so far through my university studies so highly recommend the platform to both current and perspective students. The help you can receive for each of your modules is amazing, creating a community of collaboration which is beneficial for all students.
