Second and third year students run the PASS scheme as student mentors (voluntary) and student organisers (paid). They run sessions to discuss study-related problems with first year students in a friendly, informal setting. Students who work on PASS gain extensive experience in organisation, events management, publicity and most of all clear and tailored communication.
Each school or department runs their mentoring sessions differently and to different schedules. There are currently fourteen schools across QMUL with a PASS scheme. Mentors can give as much or as little time as they have. More commitment is required from student organisers as they deal with paperwork and planning.
Open to second and third year undergraduates at QMUL whose school offer the scheme.
Full information about the scheme and the roles can be found on the PASS web-page.
Recruitment is usually towards the end of each academic year with decisions made by the Summer. All mentors must attend compulsory training at the start of the academic year.
