UCL Changemakers


UCL ChangeMakers

UCL ChangeMakers provides project funding as a tool to help faculties and departments address student feedback and ideas. Through these projects, students and staff work together in partnership to bring about improvements to the student learning experience at UCL.

Funding still available

We are still accepting applications for departmental projects in 2020. 

You might want to consider how staff and students can work in partnership to find local solutions to the shift to remote learning and assessment.

Any funding received needs to be spent within this financial year (by the end of July 2020).

However, you can plan to extend and build on projects started now as part of your 2020/21 departmental project.

For example, planning for and then carrying out, activities such as:

  • transition
  • welcome
  • community-building activities. 

If you have already received funding, you are welcome to re-scope it towards responding to the shift to remote learning and assessment.
