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'm a Literature major studying a Bachelor of Arts, this is my third degree. I graduated as a registered nurse in 2009 from QUT in Brisbane and I'm now completing my Masters of Counselling course at the same time as my Arts degree.

My best piece of study advice (from the experience of changing courses four times before finding the Arts course at CDU), is study what you are passionate about. If you're not passionate about your course, you won't have the motivation to complete your assignments.

I am looking forward to supporting CUC106 students succeed in their studies through group study sessions.
