PAL home


Welcome to PAL

PAL is owned by students. No staff, no formality. It is a safe, fun, structured yet informal space for 1st year students to explore and get to know their subject, their course, their University and their classmates.

PAL sessions are lively and relaxed, and give first year students the opportunity to ask 'silly questions' that they wouldn't want to ask a lecturer.

PAL Leaders are experienced students who have 'been there, done it and got the t-shirt'. They have the vital insider knowledge about what it takes to be a successful first year student at the University of Bedfordshire.

98% of current PAL Leaders agree that being a PAL Leader has enhanced their student experience!
