Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS)

PASS offers free, weekly, out-of-class study sessions to all students enrolled in Actuarial studies courses: 

They are facilitated by a leader (or leaders) who are students who have previously and successfully completed the course.

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.
