Peer Assisted Study Support (PASS)

Aerospace PASS won 2014 Scheme of the Year

Aerospace PASS had submitted two videos to the Peer Support video competition. The evening started off with their video, showing all the activities Aerospace PASS does. You can watch their winning video and the second video they made online. 

Aerospace PASS was also shortlisted for the team working awards for all their hard work in arranging a great variety of PASS sessions throughout the year. 

Peer support

PASS is a student led, student owned scheme within The University of Manchester. The purpose of PASS is to help first year students with both their academic studies and settling into Manchester.  Higher year students are trained as PASS leaders each year to run PASS sessions for first year students.  PASS groups meet once a week, giving students the opportunity to ask questions about their course, cover any coursework or tutorial sheets, raise queries about exams, or ask questions about Manchester or the University more generally.  The sessions are informal and friendly and academic staff are never present.

PASS leaders receive full training for their role, and gain and develop skills in leadership, teamwork and communication.  

PASS quiz

The School of MACE’s exceptional PASS coordinators run quizzes for staff and students alike.

Featuring rounds of general knowledge, music, sport and of course, engineering, this fun evening is eagerly anticipated by all. Refreshments are provided in the form of half-time pizza, with the top three teams receiving a prize.
