Enjoy a supportive learning environment

Business students benefit from a number of initiatives which provide a supportive learning environment, helping you achieve your study goals.

In addition to weekly lectures and tutorials, Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) and the duty tutor service can help you reach your academic potential. PASS is facilitated by a student who has excelled in the course in a previous semester and provides an opportunity to work collaboratively to cover lecture material, develop a deeper understanding of course material and enhance learning skills. Duty tutors are assigned to each of the first year courses to provide drop-in assistance to students.

When you study business or law at the University of Newcastle, you also have exclusive access to the Student Learning Space (SLS), a fun new facility designed to help you fulfil your potential. SLS is about enhancing your learning experience – find a place to study, work on assignments and group tasks, and participate in PASS.
