PASS – Peer Assisted Study Support

PASS is a subject-based mentoring scheme, run for first-year students by higher-year undergraduates.

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.

PASS is an internationally renowned programme and very well recognised by employers. 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. The majority run either 1 or 2 (larger schools) sessions for an hour per week. Mentors can give as much or as little time as they have, the absolute minimum for a mentor to be involved in is 3 sessions. More commitment is required from student organisers as they deal with paperwork and planning.


Applications are currently closed. Please check this page again in summer 2019. If you have any questions in the meantime please contact or the Academic Coordinator listed for your school.
