Finding deadlines and time-management overwhelming? Requiring academic support and guidance from undergraduate students? PASS is here to help!
PASS (Peer-Assisted Study Support) is a mentoring scheme which is run by students for students, specifically first-year students who have a keen interest in gaining academic advice from upper-year undergraduate students. PASS is firmly established in 14 departments at Queen Mary, including the English and Drama department. Mentors at PASS offer invaluable and comprehensive help to students, which has proven to benefit students moving onto their final years at university.
For English PASS, most of the sessions which run on a weekly basis are orientated around upcoming assignments and assisting students with queries related to academia. I think this scheme is a great opportunity for first-year students to consolidate their learning by discussing their queries or interests.
