The Peer Assisted Study Support (PASS) scheme provides support for undergraduate students in their first year.
What is PASS?
Through regular, timetabled meetings, PASS leaders (who are students in their second, third or fourth year) help support you as first-year students in your transition to university life. They will assist you to develop important mathematical skills that will be useful throughout your course.
The scheme also benefits the PASS leaders, as they develop valuable communication, leadership and interpersonal skills. It is an opportunity for them to reinforce their own mathematical knowledge. At the start of your university journey, PASS leaders are on hand to provide a friendly face and initial induction support.
In PASS, we treat all students solely on the basis of their merits, abilities and potential, regardless of gender, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, age, socio-economic background, disability, religious or political beliefs, trade union membership, family circumstance, sexual orientation or any other irrelevant distinctions.
Welcome Week activities and PASS
During Welcome Week you will have the opportunity to meet your PASS leaders and members of your PASS group. You will also have the opportunity to work with your PASS group, on some exciting mathematical problems.
"PASS is a great way to bridge the gap between A level and university-level maths. Teaching first-years has helped refresh my mathematical knowledge and I've made lots of friends too."
