Stannary Study Sesh

What is a Stannary Study Sesh?

It’s a social study session where University of Exeter students can get coursework and study advice from Peer-Assisted Learners (PALs) who are in their second and third year from a range of courses. This can include anything from planning an assignment to getting your head around statistics as well as course specific questions.


Who is it for? 

All University of Exeter undergraduate students with courses based at the Penryn Campus. 


When and where are the sessions? 

Just drop in to a Stannary Study Session, in the Upper Stannary, on any of the following dates:

  • Wednesday 6 February, 2-3pm
  • Wednesday 20th February, 2-3pm
  • Wednesday 6th March, 2-3pm
  • Wednesday 20th March, 2-3pm


Why should I attend?

  • The sessions fill a need for an Exeter peer-mentor scheme that crosses course and college boundaries
  • You can meet students from other year groups who have been there before
  • The sessions specifically help students who take modules outside of their discipline e.g. modularity, FCH
  • You can aid development of skills outside of your discipline e.g. statistics and different forms of referencing
