Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) at UCLan

UCLan began piloting PASS in 2017, running it within ten courses across the University. In 2018 the scheme expanded to cover 40 courses, with PASS continually expanding across campus. PASS Leaders receive extensive training to equip them with the skills to lead and facilitate meaningful learning within small groups.

What to do if your subject does not currently provide PASS?
If you are interested in introducing PASS to your Course, please email and the PASS Manager will contact you.



The PASS Team are situated within the Centre of Excellence in Learning and Teaching. They run training, liaise with staff and create resources for sessions. They co-ordinate Leaders and manage the PASS process to ensure it runs efficiently and effectively.
