UNSW Business School Peer Assisted Study Sessions

Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) offers free, weekly, out-of-class study sessions to all students enrolled in a targeted course. They are facilitated by a leader (or leaders) who are students who have previously and successfully completed the course. PASS is available for first year students studying Actuarial Studies, Accounting, Economics and Information Systems.
