Service Summary

Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) is a learning enhancement program attached to historically challenging courses. PASS provides a welcoming and supportive environment where students can work through course content and learn transferable study skills that they can apply to other courses.

This program offers students the opportunity to attend weekly workshops and office hours, as well as mock exams, which are designed and run by PASS Facilitators; student staff members hired by the Centre for Student Academic Support (CSAS). A PASS Facilitator is a fellow student who has taken the course previously and has achieved a grade of A- or higher. The PASS Facilitator does not re-lecture, but instead encourages students to collaborate with one another, in order to encourage independent learning.

For the 2022-2023 academic year, PASS sessions will reflect the mode of course delivery of each PASS supported course (i.e. in-person and/or online).
