Peer led study groups

Peer led study groups provide opportunity for students to meet at regular times each week and work collaboratively with a senior student who has successfully completed the unit - someone who has “been there and done that” -  to understand the content and requirements and develop the study strategies needed for doing well in the unit.

PASS - Peer Assisted Study Sessions (Science and Medicine units)

It’s like extra study…and you’ve got help by your side

PASS participant, 2015

What can you expect in a PASS session?

PASS is friendly and informal.  You can ask questions, discuss concepts, get help with difficult topics, work through examples, review notes, share study strategies, prepare for exams and assessment tasks. For every 5 PASS sessions attended, there is a free coffee voucher.

Students in on-campus PASS units receive a sign up invitation email. You can also just turn up to the session. Information about PASS ADOBE connect sessions are on the unit MOODLE.

Peer Mentor Program (Business and Law units) for ON and OFF campus students

I felt 'reassured' by the sessions and was able to gain practical strategies that I could apply to my studies. Additionally, I benefitted from an opportunity to ask 'basic questions' (again) and revise material that had given me some trouble.

Feedback from 2017–T1
