Description: Monash University, Australia employs a vertically-integrated curriculum with cumulative knowledge testing throughout the course. To facilitate cross-year level revision, a vertical study programme (VESPA) was established using the principles of peer-assisted learning (PAL). This paper explores its implemention and evaluates VESPA in relation to defined objectives.
