Student group working together

How to get involved

Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) is a student-to-student support scheme aimed to support you during your time at University.

PAL in modules and programmes

PAL is usually arranged for first year students, within their programmes or within certain modules. We also have a range of PAL schemes for 2018/19 that support the development of technical skills. 

When are my PAL sessions?

PAL sessions can usually be found on your timetable, alongside your normal lectures and seminars. Log in to myUWE and check the timetable tab. In some cases, especially those within technical areas, these will be arranged by the Faculty and advertised locally.

If you are having difficulties finding PAL on your programme, please contact us.

How to get the most out of PAL

Your success on your course depends upon your own efforts and in order to get the most out of PAL. It is important that you:

  • attend regularly
  • come to sessions prepared and with appropriate resources
  • actively participate in group discussions and workshops.

PAL Mentoring

We currently only have one PAL Mentoring scheme that is available for UWE Cares students. You should be informed of the scheme when you start University. If you are a UWE Cares student and haven't heard about the scheme then please do contact us.

PAL Workshops

PAL workshops are advertised in the same way as other UWE Bristol workshops. You can sign up through InfoHub. They are open for anyone to attend provided you have booked a space.
