Study groups on campus
Does anyone run study groups on campus?
UWA Business School Students
The UWA Business School runs Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS). PASS gives students enrolled in some of the Commerce units the opportunity to work collaboratively in small groups with the help of competent, caring, subject-experienced student peers. You can find out more about PASS online and register via LMS.
UWA Science Students
The Faculty of Science runs the Peer Assisted Learning Program (PAL). PAL gives first-year students enrolled in core Science units the opportunity to work collaboratively in small groups with guidance from trained student leaders who have recently completed the unit successfully. PAL consists of voluntary weekly study group sessions led by student leaders. You should note the following:
- If you are studying a PAL-participating unit, you will automatically be enrolled in ‘PAL’ on the LMS. You can register for a weekly PAL session via this LMS unit.
- PAL sessions are scheduled to suit the unit timetable, but also depend on the availability of PAL leaders.
- The number of PAL sessions offered each week depends on the number of students in the unit, so some subjects will have up to ten PAL sessions to choose from whereas others will only have one or two.
- Registrations for PAL study groups open in week 2 of each semester.
