Abstract or description

This article addresses the implementation of extracurricular activities (ECAs) as a tool for architectural knowledge acquisition in schools of architecture worldwide. The presented ECAs could play a role to fill gaps mentioned in the Architects Registration Board (ARB) proposal for modernising the initial education and training of architects in the UK and emphasises the civic function of architectural education in Europe. Students’ participation in ECAs gave them a better learning experience and contributed positively to their academic performance. Thus, the motive behind introducing ECAs is to improve students’ skills and engage them in other activities contributing to their overall learning experience.
