Peer Assisted Learning Scheme (PALS) Leaders plan and deliver facilitated regular group study sessions for students in the year below on the same course.

- have the opportunity to attend a series of additional PAL events, workshops and conferences, both internally and externally
- receive payment for each session delivered and debrief attended.
