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