Peer-assisted study sessions

Sessions and materials

Online and on-campus sessions

In 2024 we will deliver our PASS program through both interactive online sessions and face to face, on campus sessions.

Registrations for Semester 2 will open 9 am, Monday 29 July 2024. PASS sessions will begin in Week 2 of Semester 2, Monday 5 August 2024.

You'll also have access to all PASS materials you need each week on our PASS Canvas site.

What to bring

Ensure you have all your lecture notes, readings and textbooks readily available in time for your session.

Note down any questions you have about lecture content, because the PASS facilitator will ask what you want to focus on in the sessions.

Although facilitators can’t directly address assessment or tutorial questions, they can discuss the relevant topic areas generally.

If you have questions about your studies more broadly, such as study or note-taking strategies, or how to use the library, you can also raise these during your PASS session. You can also find useful information on our study skills pages, such as Reading and note taking or Preparing for exams.

PASS Canvas

All PASS materials will be uploaded weekly onto the PASS Canvas site.

This is accessible to all students enrolled in a PASS supported unit of study in the Business School.

To see the PASS materials log in to Canvas and select Peer-Assisted Study Sessions (PASS).

The PASS program greatly values your feedback and where possible we make changes according to your suggestions. Ideas that we have responded to include:

  • more PASS sessions in more units of study, including multiple sessions each day, longer sessions and not clustering the sessions around lunch
  • more challenging material
  • providing PASS material in advance
  • better time management of the session
  • providing more answers/sheets/summaries
  • more convenient locations, in rooms closer to the Business School main buildings.

To provide feedback, please email


Student information collected for PASS is kept strictly confidential and is not disclosed to anyone outside of PASS management. This includes, but is not limited to, information about the attendance, non-attendance, registration or non-registration of any program participant or non-participant. In particular, attendance records are not disclosed to unit of study coordinators or other university staff and no information about any individual student is used in reports about the PASS program.

This information is collected only for the purposes of:

  • registration; and
  • statistical analysis (in which all student data is anonymised)

This statistical analysis allows us to assess the program's effectiveness and make improvements to the program.

If you are uncomfortable with the use of your information for any of these purposes, please email the project coordinator at and your information will not be included.
