Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS)

Do you want to improve your marks, meet other students and study your unit content in a relaxed, friendly and focussed way?

If so, why not join a Peer Assisted Study Session (PASS)?

What is PASS?

PASS (Peer Assisted Study Sessions) are group study sessions conducted by PASS leaders – current students who have successfully completed the targeted unit.

PASS sessions are designed to maximise your understanding of the unit content, in a fun, informal environment. PASS sessions will also help you to develop study skills, as well as exam and assessment techniques specific to the unit. Students who regularly attend sessions often see a significant improvement in their results.

For information on the times and venues for sessions, see the timetable below.

PASS Leaders

PASS Leaders are current students who are trained to run weekly group study sessions. They scored a high mark in the unit they support and have a high GPA overall.

By participating in PASS, you will learn the secrets of their success while developing independent learning skills.

I am externally studying a Bachelor of Laws. As a second year student, I can understand those overwhelmed and nervous feelings but also the excitement that comes with completing this core unit. I hope to use my enthusiasm and passion for not only the law but LWZ115 in particular, to allow current students to succeed in it also with excellent results.

Hello Everyone,

I am an international student from Nepal doing a Bachelor of Accounting. I will be conducting a Peer Assisted Study Session for ACT102. I am very excited to help and support students studying ACT102 in their studies through the group study session.

My best piece of study advice is to study the suggested textbook in detail along with the lecture notes and slides. This will help students to get in-depth knowledge of the topic and broaden their understanding. Additionally, students should not forget to practice different types of question to build their confidence and practising past exams questions will help students to understand what to expect in their final examination.

Have a great semester ahead!
