Develop smarter study skills, gain a deeper understanding of your unit and create connections with other students by joining Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS).

Creating the perfect study space

Are you struggling to study? Too many distractions or just haven’t got the right flow? Revamp your study space!  I studied laying on my bed with my laptop on my knees, phone in my hand and surrounded by snacks.
