Hence, the decision to integrate student activities, in the form of clubs, in the University's curriculum and to allocate credit hours to them. The clubs work under a bylaw that draws their scheme work and methodology. Student Clubs Council directly supervises all student clubs. It, in turns, represents the students through its board which, in most, includes elected students, with the presence of some members of the teaching and administrative staff.
Bearing the above in mind, the UoK attaches special importance to student social and academic activities, as it believes in the role of such organized events in channeling students physically, mentally and spiritually in order to attribute positively to themselves, their University, their culture, their country and the universe surrounding them. Moreover, these activities help in the cultural and scientific integration process which balances academic study and "extracurricular" activities, the thing that may help bring out hidden skills and talents.
Student activities play a vital role in the University’s academic life, contributing positively to the building of an educated, cognizant and independent student character, not to mention the fact that they develop responsibility and enhance group integrity and voluntary work, thus creating an intimate atmosphere of love and understanding among the University staff.
The students themselves establish and head Student Clubs through the board of each club and with the presence of an academic supervisor and another specialized one.
