I am a first year student in Business Administration. I was often looking for a brief explanation of certain concepts from my previous study and through Google I ended up at Stuvia. I found out that many fellow students, also from other study programs and schools, were looking for summaries to study for their exams. I already made summaries and shared them with classmates in the past and I always got good responses. So I thought that other students might also be interested in my summaries. This way I help other students and I earn a nice contribution myself. Most of the time I save this money to buy something big. However, of course, I also did some shopping after the first payouts I received.
When I went to study medicine I had some difficulty with preparing for my admission test. After passing the test, I decided to use my knowledge and creativity to create practice questions for future students who also want to study medicine. The first year turned out to be an unexpected success, which led me to double the number of practice questions the next year to really help students as best as I can in their preparation. Whenever someone asks a question about the preparation, I help them (free of charge). It takes a lot of time, but it generates even more energy and that's why I do it. In only two years, I turned over 14.000 dollar on Stuvia.
I started studying Law back in 2014 and continued to do a master's degree in Law as well. Last year I got my master's degree and even though I finished law school, I still sell my summaries and notes on Stuvia. I have always put a lot of time in them and they're still relevant nowadays for other Law students. I used the earnings to pay the half of a plane ticket once. Also, when I used to be short in cash as a student, I used the money to go shopping, pay my rent or order take-away.
I am a Law Student at King’s College London (KCL) with an aspiration to be a transnational commercial lawyer at a top global firm. I ended up finding Stuvia when I found that so many students were looking for concise and perfect notes and essays in the main A-Level subjects. I had these documents just collecting metaphorical dust on my computer. So as soon as I found how easy it was to sell on Stuvia, with copying the ISBN and adding it to a book, the units already being there, the creation of bundles and so much more, it was really a no-brainer! I personally found that when you have the perfect notes to study from, I can boost my own grades. So I always make notes with that in my mind and use concise and beneficial analysis, contemporary examples and diagrams where it will be best to use.
I study Creative Business at the Hogeschool van Amsterdam. I always made summaries and my classmates were very interested. Especially if it was a book of 500 pages. So I started sending them summaries, until I found out that Stuvia existed. In the meantime, my summaries have been sold over 900 times and I have been able to take a trip twice with the money I earned. Win-win if you ask me!
