What is PASS?
Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) are free weekly study sessions with fellow students 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 consistently achieve higher results than those who don't attend.
Study sessions are friendly, informal and collaborative. During a PASS session students:
- Share study techniques
- Expand on discussions from tutorials
- Review subject readings and lecture notes
- Discuss key course concepts
- Prepare for assessment
- Meet like-minded peers
- Eat lollies
Who can participate in PASS?
Any student enrolled in a subject with a PASS leader can attend PASS sessions. Join the session Facebook groups below.
- Stay up to date via our Facebook page.
- Keep PASS in your pocket with Instagram.
- Hear from the peers behind PASS on our Blog.
Sessions start in Week 2 of semester.
