Experiences from the Stuvia Community

Spitsanne
Spitsanne - Business Administration

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 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 earn a nice contribution myself. Mainly I save this money to buy something big. However, of course, I did purchase a number of items of clothing after the first payouts I received.

mikaeldavid2020 - Medicine

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 year, I turned over 14.000 dollar on Stuvia.

IrisAshmira - Law

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 eventhough 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 buy for half a plaine 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.

MTeaching
MTeaching - Law

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 and I had these 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 being already 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 my notes with that in mind, using concise and beneficial analysis, contemporary examples and diagrams where it will be best to use.

“My work is well written, actual, informational and very, very thorough.”

I have a particular eye for detail and I would rather give more information than less. My work is fully researched, and my ideas on activities are new and fresh. I use my earnings for study resources like books mostly, but also to buy coffee on campus or go shopping sometimes.
