Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) are peer led online study groups available in first year units identified as historically challenging for students. Sessions are facilitated by senior students who have recently received excellent grades in the unit and have completed nationally accredited training. Since Term 2 2018, PASS has supported nearly 2000 students.
As a program that prides itself on providing leadership opportunities by recruiting students who undergo nationally accredited training to plan and facilitate sessions, we often see students who have been regular PASS participants apply for the role of PASS Leader in later terms.
