Peer Assisted Learning

We’re so excited to be leading on a new Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) pilot scheme next year! It will be for foundation year students in the College of Life and Natural Sciences and we are looking to recruit leaders from the same college.

PAL Stands for Peer Assisted Learning. This means learning with your ‘peers’ – other students – to talk through topics taught by your lecturers to better your understanding. PAL does not replace teaching and PAL Leaders are not teachers.
