Look outside the classroom.

Make the most of your time here. Spend an afternoon volunteering. Discover something new in the lab. Join a club. Present at a conference. Make memories. Make a difference.

Curiosity rewarded

Working as a research assistant, taking part in Student Research Day, speaking at or attending conferences—these are just some of the activities available to MacEwan students who want to enhance their research skills and explore exciting ideas. 

Student Research

The world is your classroom
New perspectives. International networks. Lifelong friendships. When you study at a partner university in another country, the skills you learn and the people you meet open doors to a whole new world.

Volunteer at MacEwan

Get involved, get credit

Many of the extracurricular activities that you participate in at MacEwan University can be recognized on your Student Experience Record (SER). The SER is an official document that lists your involvement with non-credit clubs, campaigns and committees. This document boosts your resumé, letting potential employers know a bit more about you.
