Information for students
What is PASS?
The PASS (Peer Assisted Study Sessions) program consists of a series of 1 hour weekly review sessions for students.
PASS is provided for all students who want to improve their understanding of course material and improve their grades—BUT ATTENDANCE IS NOT COMPULSORY.
By attending PASS you will get a chance to get together with others in your course to compare notes, to discuss important concepts and to develop strategies for studying. At each session you will be guided by your PASS Leader.
What’s a PASS Leader?
PASS Leaders have successfully completed studies in the same course. They are recruited to share with you what they have learned over the years about how to study. They know the course content and will help guide you through it. Their job is to help you learn more effectively.
When do PASS sessions start?
The PASS program will begin in the second week of semester and continue throughout the semester. You can enroll in a PASS course via the Online registration system, or you can just turn up.
PASS will run several times a week and you will be able to attend as many of the sessions as you wish. You can attend as many sessions as you wish. PASS sessions are informal, bring your lunch; bring your lecture notes; bring your textbook; bring your questions!
What’s in it for me?
If you attend PASS sessions regularly, you significantly improve your chances of gaining better results in your course. You will develop a better understanding of course content and more effective ways of studying. These skills will help you in your other courses as well. IT IS ALSO FREE!
