The main objective of this module is the execution of a community service-related project aimed at achieving a beneficial impact on a chosen section of society, preferably but not exclusively by engagement with a section of society which is different from the student's own social background. This module also aims to develop an awareness of personal, social and cultural values as well as multidisciplinary and life skills, such as communication, interpersonal and leadership skills.
