Get paid to take notes

Looking for an opportunity to help fellow students in Semester Two? Disability Resource Service (DRS) is looking to buy high quality lecture notes from students.

These notes will be used by students who experience difficulties taking notes themselves for disability-related reasons.

Get involved

  • Peer notetaking has Co-curricular record (CCR) recognition
  • DRS will pay $8 per set of lecture notes (you essentially get paid to go to lectures).
  • The knowledge that someone else will be using your notes encourages better note-taking, benefiting your study.

How to apply

Taking great notes

In order to be suitable for purchase, notes for most arts lectures need to be taken in Microsoft Word using the template provided by DRS. However, in science/math courses, which include a lot of mathematical symbols, formulas, and graphs (such as physics, chemistry and engineering) the notes can be handwritten and scanned.

Disability Resource Service


Any student enrolled in an assessed course who has a temporary or permanent disability that affects their ability to study is eligible to register with DRS at any stage of the academic year. Register here >
