Abstract PASS has proven to be a popular program with undergraduate University students. This study examines the impact of the PASS program when it is introduced into a postgraduate subject. The results imply that the postgraduate students who attended PASS were on average able to achieve higher marks than students that did not. However, the feedback provided by postgraduate students on the benefits they felt they achieved whilst attending PASS was not as positive as the feedback provided by undergraduate students.
