Peer Academic Coaching provides relaxed open study spaces for students to work individually or in study groups. During these sessions, students have the opportunity to receive content support from Peer Academic Coaches (PACs), attend workshops, learn subject-specific study skills, and participate in exam review sessions. Students will always know when and where they can access peer support!

In addition to our group sessions, Peer Academic Coaches will be offering Individual sessions via Zoom.  Click the link below to request a one-on-one session.
