Student engagement activities
within ECIU

Since 2021, ECIU University encourages their learners to engage in extra-curricular activities alongside the challenges. These activities aim at creating an important learners’ community where everyone can share their experiences to others and reflect with fellow ECIU learners on the project. In ECIU University, the student engagement can be materialized in several bodies and events that are at the disposal of the interested students.
