Peer study assistance
Get help from fellow students with our Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS).
What is PASS?
The program involves one hour weekly review sessions for you to compare notes, discuss difficult concepts and review weekly material with other students. These sessions are run by a student PASS Leader who previously achieved excellent results in your course.
Currently there are over 30 courses offering PASS sessions across all campuses. The sessions run throughout the semester and usually start in the second week. Sessions run several times a week and you can just turn up to attend as many as you like.
How does PASS help you?
Research has shown that PASS sessions can improve your grades, regardless of whether you are trying to get a high distinction or just pass your course by:
- improving analytical skills
- increasing motivation
- improving time management skills
- helping exam preparation.
PASS sessions are great. They make me study and bring my attention to what I need to know. They are also a place where I'm not ashamed to firstly admit I don't know something, and secondly, to get help - previous PASS student.
