Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) are free weekly study sessions with fellow students led by a high achieving student (PASS Leader) who has successfully completed the subject in a previous year.
What is PASS?
Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) are free group study sessions led by a student (PASS Leader) who has successfully completed the subject in a previous year.
PASS is designed for students who want to maximise engagement and enjoyment of their subjects. It's also been shown that students who attend PASS have been able to improve their academic performance and acheive higher grades.
Study sessions are friendly, informal and collaborative. During a PASS session students:

- Expand on discussions from tutorials
- Review subject readings and lecture notes
- Discuss key course concepts
- Prepare for assessment
- Make friends
- Eat lollies

Attending PASS has been proven to improve students' academic performances. This can happen whether you're struggling with the subject or aiming for the best mark in the class.
PASS students have also said they find sessions to be more effective than studying alone, ie. 1 hour of PASS = 3 hours of studying alone.
PASS can help with:
- Study strategies
- Presentation skills
- Time management
- Reducing anxiety
- Problem solving
- Meeting new people
