This paper presents the theoretical bases and applications of learning in groups and the impact of a student support program on supporting the quality of learning in higher education. A student support program, Academic Support Program (ASP) that captures the basis for various ‘active learning’ methods by implementing ‘learning in groups and learning from peers’ strategies, is represented in this paper. The peer study discussion groups of ASP allow university students to have permanent and meaningful learning experiences. The paper also introduces a diagram showing the cognitive processing cycle and meta-cognitive skills in regard to learning in groups. The strategies and principles of group learning are discussed and experiences from peer study and discussion groups in practice are shared.
