Then you’ll be asked to attach something that will persuade us that you will benefit from this program, i.e. papers (published or not), videos, sketches, project plans, pictures of your work or a work of art you’ve made – anything that shows your creative side. We’re looking for students who are self-directed and innovative so show us why Ecosa is a good fit for you!
