Peer assisted study sessions
Peer assisted study sessions (PASS) are weekly student-led study sessions where you can ask questions about course material and student life.
The study sessions are friendly and informal, giving you the opportunity to focus on the subject areas you want to work on. PASS is a safe place to ask questions and improve your confidence in your studies.
The sessions are led by PASS leaders, who are trained students from later years of your course.
In 2019 PASS will be available in the following subjects:
- Accounting & Finance
- Aerospace Engineering
- Cellular and Molecular Medicine
- Civil Engineering
- Classical Studies
- Economics and all Joint Programmes
- Engineering Design
- Foundation Year in Arts and Humanities
