About PASS at University of Sunderland

PASS or Peer Assisted Study Sessions was first introduced at the University of Sunderland in September 2019 on Education Studies and Sports and Exercise Science to great success. Since then we have expanded year on year and now offer PASS across several schools of study.

Our aim at the University of Sunderland is to provide a peer-led learning environment where students are encouraged to participate in friendly, non-judgmental academic development on topics studied in class, using agendas created by you, the student.

PASS also aims to aid your academic understanding and subsequently build your confidence, knowledge and personal growth as you learn and discuss subjects alongside your peers and 2nd year PASS Leaders who lead your PASS sessions and transition into Higher Education. PASS sessions not only work towards a better academic knowledge, but also a sense of belonging and inclusivity on your course and the university.
