Leadership and mentoring

Sign up to UQ’s Peer Assisted Study Session (PASS) program to get study help for your coursework.

Over several weeks during Semesters 1 and 2, you can attend weekly study sessions with PASS Leaders. The informal and interactive small-group sessions allow you to ask questions, get tips and information, and socialise with your peers.

PASS Leaders are high-achieving students who have recently completed the course that you’re studying. They tend not to give you answers but instead help you to arrive at your own conclusions.

The PASS program offers sessions in the following School of the Environment courses:

Semester 1: 

  • GEOS1100
  • ENVM1501
