4 ways UniPASS can help you with your studies

News story

We all know that fitting in extra study around classes, work and everyday life can be tricky.

Four people sitting around a table doing a UniPASS activity.

If you’re looking for an efficient and fun way to get more out of your studies, you should try UniPASS! It’s a free program of first and second year study sessions designed to help you maximise your grades, strengthen your study skills and make connections with other students.

Here’s four reasons why you should come along:

  1. Learn study skills

Everyone learns in different ways. UniPASS sessions incorporate a variety of study styles which can help you find the best method for you!

There’s something for everyone with activities such as worksheets and collaborative mind-maps; and engaging social group activities like debates and celebrity heads. These diverse activities are structured around the unit content and are designed to appeal to different study styles, giving you some ideas about what style works best for you. These study techniques can then be used in other units throughout your degree.

It doesn’t matter if you are a high achiever or just looking to get through, UniPASS is for students at every level!

  1. Meet new friends and future colleagues

One of the most important aspects of uni life is meeting people and making new friends. With the recent focus on online learning, meeting other students can be difficult. Most UniPASS sessions are face-to-face, meaning that you can see and talk to a diverse range of students doing similar units to you. It’s super important to get your face out there!

Students from all types of courses attend UniPASS sessions meaning that you get to know future professionals across many different industries.

  1. Get guidance and support with your units

UniPASS facilitators are students (just like you!) who have previously done well in the unit that they facilitate. Using this knowledge, they are able to help guide you through the content and give you advice on where to focus. This is a great resource as they can point you in the right direction and help you avoid making common mistakes.

If you are struggling with a particular topic or issue, and it’s not something we can help with, we can point you in the right direction to get more help without having to ask a member of staff.

  1. It’s free and flexible!

The best part about UniPASS is that it is free and super flexible! There is no need to book or bring anything, UniPASS sessions have all the necessary material provided (including free lollies!). The only things you need to bring are yourself and a can-do attitude!

Interested in giving UniPASS a try? Check the Blackboard page for your unit and look for the UniPASS heading on the left! If the unit does have UniPASS sessions all the details will be in there.
