What is PASS?

PASS offers free, weekly, out-of-class study sessions to all students enrolled in Information Systems in Business (INFS1602), Business Databases (INFS1603), Fundamentals of Business Programming (INFS1609), Business Application Programming (INFS2605), Enterprise Database Management (INFS2608) and Accounting Information Systems (INFS5978).

They are facilitated by a leader (or leaders) who are students who have previously and successfully completed the course. PASS is available for first year students studying Information Systems.

Attending PASS regularly can help you to:

  • Deepen your understanding of the course content
  • Develop skills for independent university study
  • Make friends
  • Feel more confident in your studies

How can I join a PASS Group?

PASS sessions begin in week 3. Timetables for the PASS groups are handed out at lectures in the first two weeks of session and are made available on the Moodle website. 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.
