Peer Assisted Study Sessions

PASS Are structured group study sessions aimed at units which have been identified as historically challenging for students.

Sessions are facilitated by PASS Leaders, students who have recently received excellent grades in the unit and have undergone nationally accredited training. Studies have shown that students who participate in 4+ PASS sessions a term receive an increase in marks with students participating in 10+ sessions a term receiving a higher overall grade.

PASS Provides weekly, out of class, informal sessions for PASS supported units either on-campus or online. By sharing knowledge, experience and strategies, students will:

  • develop smarter study skills
  • develop useful exam preparation techniques
  • gain a deeper understanding of unit content
  • experience increased motivation and confidence to complete the unit
  • create connections with other students and develop interpersonal skills.
