PASS (Peer Assisted Study Sessions)
Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) are now operating in this unit.
PASS sessions are not compulsory, but are highly recommended for all students taking this unit.
PASS sessions are 1 hour weekly study groups where students get together to consolidate their understanding of the course material; reinforce key concepts and develop effective study strategies. Students work in small study groups facilitated by skilled leaders who will specifically guide your learning. PASS Leaders are former students of this unit who achieved excellent results themselves, and who have been trained as PASS leaders to help you get the most out of the unit.
PASS is for everyone – it is not a remedial program for struggling students, but a program for all students who want to improve their performance.
More information about PASS sessions will be given in the first lecture, and through iLearn. These will be held on-campus only, but any external students who can make it are very welcome to attend.
