  • Students work together to reinforce key concepts and develop effective study strategies;
  • Trained Peer Leaders facilitate pair, group and whole class activities;
  • Peer Leaders do not re-teach lesson material;
  • PASS Coordinators monitor and support the Peer Leaders in their role.

Whether you are a top performer or could use some improvement, you will benefit from the skills and understanding gained from attending PASS.

PASS aims to:

  • Give students an opportunity to work collaboratively on study material;
  • Provide a relaxed environment where students can make friends with others on the same course;
  • Assist students to develop independent learning skills;
  • Motivate students to study and keep up to date with course content.


Sessions for your course are advertised during the first week of lectures and on your course web page.

  • Look for ‘PASS Session Times’ on your course web page;
  • Note the time for the session which best fits with your timetable;
  • Places are limited to 16 students per session;
  • Arrive early to secure your seat in the session (there is no sign-up this semester).
