What is PASS?
Peer Assisted Study Scheme (PASS) is a weekly study group for first year students led by final year chemistry students. Students are split into groups, details of which you will find on the PASS noticeboard in the Chemistry Concourse by the end of Welcome Week.
Why go to PASS?
- To talk to other students about the course, student life, tips on places to go, halls, the city, anything!
- To meet new people and make friends on your course, both in your year and in higher year groups.
- Those who attend PASS sessions are more likely to perform better in exams due to the help and advice given by PASS leaders.
Comments from recent students on PASS:
“My PASS Leaders were able to give the group guidance to solve problems ourselves.”
“PASS was a massive help with my first year studies.”
“I really enjoyed PASS and will miss the sessions as they were very beneficial to my studies.”
“My PASS Leaders gave us lots of useful information about applying for an industrial placement and what we can expect to find on a placement.”
Who runs PASS?
PASS is a student led scheme. Each year a selection of students take on the responsibility of running the scheme alongside an academic member of staff (Dr Mathias Nilsson).
The PASS Coordinators for the coming year have created a Pre-Arrival Guide, containing information regarding PASS and settling into life here at the university: PASS Pre-Arrival Guide 2017.
