What is PASS? 

PASS offers free, weekly, out-of-class study sessions to all undergraduate and postgraduate students enrolled in a targeted course.

How Can I Join a PASS Group?

PASS sessions begin in week 2. Timetables for the PASS groups are handed out at lectures in the first two weeks of session and/or are made available on the course Moodle websites. There’s no need to register. 

We recommend that you attend the same group regularly but there is no obligation. You can even attend more than one PASS group a week in a subject if you like. You can also choose to attend some weeks but not others.

How Can I Get The Most Out of PASS?

  • Be interactive – this is the optimum way to learn 
  • Come along with questions and raise issues 
  • Attend regularly 

Are You Interested in Becoming a PASS Leader?

PASS leaders are mainly 2nd and 3rd-year students who:

  • Have good results (usually a distinction) in the relevant courses 
  • Have excellent interpersonal and communication skills 
  • Have an enthusiastic commitment to supporting students 

Leaders are trained and supervised by the PASS Team and attend regular team meetings. Leaders are paid for participating in training, conducting PASS sessions, and attending meetings.
