group of students discussing studies on campus

Want help with your T1 units? Join PASS

Want to make the most of Trimester 1 and gain the confidence and skills you need to pass your units with flying colours? Why not study in a group led by a student who has successfully completed your unit?

PASS stands for Peer Assisted Study Sessions. It’s a free weekly group study program run by students for students during the trimester.

PASS is a great way to ensure that you’re studying the right things the right way, to bounce ideas off other people, and to discover the answers to your questions. And, students who attend PASS sessions generally perform better than those who don’t attend PASS!

PASS commences in Week 2. 

How does it work?

PASS sessions are conducted at a set time each week on campus for 50 minutes. Simply come along to the sessions and bring whatever you’re working on, as well as your questions. The sessions are run by trained PASS Leaders, students who recently completed the unit with high marks, who know what you are going through and want to help you succeed.

Ideas and questions can also be posted on the PASS Facebook discussion group for each unit, which provides an opportunity for you to connect, ask questions and share ideas outside the session times.

If you’re a Cloud Campus student, you can also join PASS sessions online (CloudPASS). CloudPASS operates in Blackboard Collaborate Ultra.  

Who can attend PASS?

PASS is for all students—whether you are struggling, doing OK or a high achiever. You’ll develop better communication, problem-solving and critical thinking skills, and meet lots of other students. 

What are the benefits of PASS?

If you attend PASS, you’ll better understand course content, learn effective study skills and develop communication, problem-solving and critical thinking skills while meeting other students in a fun, relaxed and supportive learning environment.

Where can I find more information about PASS?

Visit the PASS website for more information and check the PASS timetable for T1 to see if your units are offered. If you want to attend PASS, you can fill in the expression of interest form.

So study smart in Trimester 1 and join PASS!
