UniPASS

Background

UniPASS is a peer learning programme organised and coordinated by the Office of Learning and Teaching (OLT). Weekly group study sessions are run by selected trained senior students. These sessions provide a place where a trained senior student creates a non-hierarchical, non-threatening collaborative learning environment. The senior students are trained in facilitation techniques and do not re-teach content; instead they strive to enable students to become active and independent learners.

UniPASS targets units that have a history of difficulty for students and not by targeting at-risk students directly. This enables UniPASS to be inclusive and voluntary, avoiding any remedial stigma so that students at varying levels of achievement can integrate and aspire to improve.

 

Attend a study session

UniPASS can help save you time and take your grades to the next level by providing you with scheduled study sessions. These sessions give you the opportunity to study, discuss concepts, compare notes, develop strategies for studying and test your knowledge in small informal groups with the help of a peer facilitator who has excelled in the subject.

UniPASS doesn’t replace lectures and tutorials. Research has shown that UniPASS is most effective for students who also attend all lectures and tutorials. To get the most out of the sessions, bring your lecture slides, notebooks, textbooks and any other study materials you have.

 

Benefits for learners:

  • improve academic performance
  • enhance study skills
  • improve social integration
  • enrich student experience
  • build communication and teamwork skills
