What’s it all about?

GeoPALS is a Peer Assisted Learning Scheme lead by students for students to enhance your student experience. In 2017/18, GeoPALS will run for 1st year students throughout semesters 1 and 2. Sessions are led by honours students and are especially tailored to your needs and experiences.

We have regular lunch time sessions for each of the degree streams:

GeogPALS = Geography (single and joint honours)

EarthPALS = all Earth Science degree programmes

EcoPALS = Ecological & Environmental Sciences
