This paper, written by two former Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) Leaders and a PAL Tutor, will support any geographer considering a PAL role. It reflects our experiences of participating in a PAL scheme at the University of the West of England, Bristol, UK, and research conducted with Geography PAL Leaders over two academic years (2012-2014). Overall, we found being a PAL Leader was positive, good fun, sociable and had positive benefits in terms of professional development. As such, we encourage you to get involved in your institutional PAL schemes.
