Peer-assisted Study Sessions (PASS)

Peer-assisted Study Sessions (PASS) provide a relaxed, informal environment for you to receive support with your studies.

Students currently in the year above you on your course will run an activity-based session tailored to your needs.

Each PASS group has two leaders who will support you throughout your first year. They are facilitators trained not in giving you the answers, but to provide a space for you to work together to find the processes, learning styles and critical thinking needed to succeed.

More information can be found in the Optometry PASS Pre-Arrival Guide 2020-21 (PDF).
