by | May 3, 2018 | Campus News

We wanted to help our students to get a list of the ten websites that can help in their study. We do not endorse any of these websites, but we think these will help study better.

Western Sydney University

The University website has everything you need to know about the study in Western Sydney University. It has all information you need to know for the duration of your study either information on contacts of your favorite professor or your student records, you just need to login with you student email address.

You can log onto UWS library, careers, information of any scholarship or other workshop.


Coffitivity recreates the ambient sounds of a cafe to boost your creativity and help you work better. According to a peer-reviewed study out of the University of Chicago, “A moderate level of ambient noise is conducive to creative cognition.” In a nutshell, this means being a tiny bit distracted helps you be more creative. Therefore, those AHA moments happen when we’re brushing our teeth, taking a shower, or mowing the lawn! If we’re not focused too much at a task at hand, we come up with awesome stuff. In the coffee shop, the chatter and clatter distract us a tiny bit and allows our creative juices to start flowing. It sounds crazy, but it works!

Google Scholar

Google scholar is a powerful search engine to search for the articles by specific author or Journal title, predominantly helpful if you are searching for the articles for literature. The impact of google in education need no elaboration. Therefore, it is a must in our list.
