PASS program: Join a study group for your course

A diverse group of students sitting on the ground in a circle.

Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) offer a fun, informal study environment, so that you can get the most out of your course.

PASS sessions are facilitated by experienced students (PASS leaders) and offer a relaxed peer environment, where students can consolidate their understanding of the course content and develop their study skills. PASS is usually attached to courses that can be challenging for students. Many of these courses are core first year courses students encounter in the first and second semester of their transition to university life.

How do I attend PASS?

You can join online via Microsoft TEAMS! The link to your PASS session's TEAMS meeting will be in your main course moodle shell, in the block labelled 'PASS - Study with Mates'. There is no enrolment or registration required. You can even attend multiple sessions in a week.
