Looking for more than a PASS – fresh options for students to raise their grades

Published:04 July 2018

The PASS leader group is ready to help

First-year CQUniversity students doing core units perceived as particularly challenging will soon be invited to participate in regular live online study sessions hosted by past students who have excelled in these units.

The School of Health, Medical and Applied Sciences and the School of Business and Law have been the first to sign up for the new PASS (Peer Assisted Study Sessions) program

The first cohorts to benefit will be students enrolled in Body Systems 2, Constitutional Law, and Accounting, Learning and Online Communications.

PASS Program Officer Amanda Henderson says the voluntary program is designed to increase grades and boost retention while encouraging networking between students.

“It’s all about helping students develop study skills to apply throughout their studies, by regularly participating in facilitated, unit-specific group study sessions,” Ms Henderson says.

“We aim to expand the program across a broader range of units going forward so that we can support as many students as possible across our footprint.”
