How does PAL work?

The weekly PAL sessions are timetabled for first year students and also second year international students. The sessions are held in the CTL Flex area in the Central Teaching Laboratories which allows PAL leaders to facilitate discussions in small groups of students. The scheme enhances collaborative and cooperative learning. One of the most important benefits of these sessions is increasing lower year students’ confidence and reassurance of study concerns.

The PAL scheme in the Department of Chemistry covers most first year modules. Each weekly study session covers different modules and topics depending on the requirement of the course and students. The module and topic for weekly sessions will be announced via Vial prior to each session.
