study skills, gain a deeper understanding of your unit and create connections
with other students by joining Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS).
PASS are FREE
online structured group study sessions aimed at first-year core units which
have been identified as historically challenging for students. Sessions are
informal, out of class and run weekly for PASS supported units.
PASS aims to help
students master unit content while integrating discipline-specific learning
skills. Sessions integrate ‘what to learn’ with ‘how to learn’.
We asked PASS participants to share their experiences. Keep reading to find out why YOU should join PASS!
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. Although I claimed this

The activities you get involved
in at university have a huge impact on your life. With so many opportunities
available, we asked our student experts (CQUni graduates and staff) to share
the CQUni activities that help you make the most of your time at uni and have
the biggest impact on your life.
The result is a 60 item bucket
list, filled with activities that can set you up for success in your studies
and after graduation. There are many benefits to completing these activities;
making new friends, learning new things, enjoying university life and knowing
you made the most of your study experience are just a few.
We challenge you to complete as many as you can throughout your studies and share your adventures using #CQUniBucketList.

University is like a head spin you get when you stand up too quickly. You have no clue what just happened and the experience is a bit of a blur. However, unlike a head spin, university is a wonderful, challenging and worthwhile experience where you get the chance to learn, make new friends, and receive outstanding opportunities.
