CIVICA Engage Track
The CIVICA Engage Track is for students with a strong civic engagement. It offers an unparalleled way for students to highlight their commitment to civic issues and do good together with a diverse set of ambitious students from all over Europe.
By combining academic study and social commitment, the selected students can explore and respond to value-laden topics like responsibility and sustainability. They do this through specific CIVICA Engage courses, hands-on interaction with community-based organisations, and by sharing experiences and reflections with CIVICA Engage students and other audiences.

CIVICA Engage Track Components
The CIVICA Engage Track is made up of three key components:
The European Week is a one-week program that takes place once per academic year at one of the participating universities. This multifaceted program includes not only academic content but also active engagement with local organizations and issues and of course interaction and collaboration with other CIVICA Engage students.
The European Week leads to an attendance certificate.
In 2021, SSE hosted the European Week in the second week of June through a hybrid format.
- One course at home university (compulsory)
- One course at partner university (optional)
- Course credits determined by home university
The Engage courses are electives offered at each partner university (Bocconi, LSE, Sciences Po and SSE). They allow for a distinct experience at each institution. It is compulsory for participants to complete an Engage course at their home university, but it is optional to complete an additional Engage course at a partner university. Each partner university will offer at least one Engage course per semester.
The CIVICA Engage Showcase Assignment completes the CIVICA Engage Track for each participating student.
