Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS)

Part of our Academic Learning Support Team, our Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) provide a platform for students to compare notes, discuss difficult concepts and review weekly material with other students.

Sessions are led by our trained PASS leaders who previously received great grades in their courses.

PASS sessions help students to improve their analytical skills, increase motivation, improve time-management skills and help them with exam preparation.
