Peer Assisted Study Sessions
Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) are organised group study sessions conducted by PASS leaders. These are students who have successfully completed the course they lead in. These study sessions help students develop study skills, exam and assessment techniques specific to their course. PASS is offered in units which are usually difficult for students and aim to create a positive learning and studying community.
