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. 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 in a supportive relaxed environment.


PASS (peer-assisted study sessions) is an academic assistance program that is available to students in Trimester 1, 2020 within the following units:

  • MTHS 120
  • CHEM 100
  • MM 110
  • RSNR 110
  • EDEE 100
  • SOCY 100
  • WRIT 101
  • CRIM 100
  • CRIM 104
  • HSNS 170

PASS involves regularly-scheduled, out-of-class, peer facilitated sessions. Sessions are open to all students enrolled in any of the above units and attendance is on a voluntary basis. PASS leaders are students who have demonstrated competence in the subject in the previous trimester/year. Students who attend PASS sessions can discover appropriate study strategies as they review content material.

Due to concerns about the COVID-19 virus, all PASS sessions will be offered online only until further notice.

To join a PASS session, please log into the PASS@UNE Moodle site
