Student Comments

Postgraduate student comments

  • I liked the PASS study atmosphere-people could sit together in groups discussing the questions they didn't understand and we learnt from each other.
  • I liked the opportunity to go over practice questions.
  • PASS motivated us to think for ourselves.
  • Everyone contributes their own ideas in PASS and then people can see problems from different perspectives which we might not have thought of before. I gained knowledge from other students and learnt from the experience of the facilitator.
  • "Peer learning" is quite useful for the course and gives us the opportunity to know new friends-PASS was very interesting.

  • I liked the people in PASS-some of whom were so helpful, others, a pleasure to talk to and most, a motivating force to learning.
  • PASS provided us an opportunity to ask any questions that we didn't understand from lectures. We were able to go through questions for practice.
  • The community feel was integral to making PASS a successful and participative learning program for me.
  • My PASS facilitator was really enthusiastic and really helped us understand the concepts.
  • PASS was a relaxed but still simulating learning environment
  • The extra practice in PASS was really helpful when it came to exam time.
  • PASS was a lot of fun and great revision for what had been learnt in the week before; the PASS facilitators were a lot of fun too and made the subjects more interesting; overall it was really enjoyable, and you make a lot of friends as well.
