Learn how these students are adapting to the COVID-19 environment by developing online extracurriculars

There is no doubt that students who undertake unique, impactful and thoughtfully crafted extracurriculars are often ‘moved up the pile’ by admissions officers looking for students with passion and determination. But how do you find an extracurricular that will resonate, and where do you start?

In order to help you begin thinking about your own ECL potential, and how to build a project of your own, we have created this special booklet that explores the ‘How To’ of ECL building with an emphasis of online opportunities during COVID-19.
