Setting up study groups

Social connections can enhance your learning. Join a formal study group, or find suggestions for setting up your own.

Peer study groups are a way of learning in a group with other students. By studying together you can perform better in your subject area, establish routines and network with other people at Victoria.

Research has shown time management, motivation, and avoiding isolation are key factors in student success, especially in first year. Student Learning research also shows that a peer study group is one of the best ways to improve retention and success in exams.

Peer study groups can help you:

  • develop critical thinking
  • gain a deeper understanding of your subject area
  • learn valuable team working skills.
