Peer Support is a voluntary program that gives new undergraduate students enrolled in introductory units the option to attend peer-led study groups. Run by students, for students, peer-led study groups offer new students a place to connect with peers, develop study skills, and gain study confidence.
What are peer-led study groups like?
Peer-led study groups are facilitated, or ‘led’ by Peer Facilitators who are experienced SCU students. The groups run online (via Blackboard Collaborate) and on campus, and have a relaxed and productive atmosphere. The Peer Facilitator brings activities that help students get off to a good start for the study session, develop study skills, and/or make a start on their upcoming assignment or exam. And students at the study group choose what they want to focus on, and work together in groups. Importantly, the study groups are a place for students to ask questions, share experiences, and learn together.
