UCL Changemakers


UCL ChangeMakers Programme

The ChangeMakers Programme provides opportunities, funding and support to students and staff who want to work together to enhance the learning experience of students at UCL.

Who are we and what do we do?

The ChangeMakers Programme is a partnership between UCL and the Students’ Union UCL. We aim to meaningfully involve students in shaping their education at UCL, whether informing the development of new programmes or making recommendations to programme teams for more inclusive curriculums, to funding your ideas to improve the student experience in your own programmes and departments.

Open to all students

The UCL ChangeMakers Programme is open to all students: undergraduate or postgraduate, taught or research.  

Information for staff

Staff can view the informaiton about ChangeMakers on the Teaching & Learning Portal

Get Involved

The ChangeMakers Programme is organised around four inter-connected themes. Each theme offers different roles and opportunities for you to get involved in depending on what you are trying to achieve, the skills you want to develop and where your interests lie. Some of the roles will involve making change in your own department whereas others will enable you to take a broader focus and work with other faculties or even influence UCL policy and practice.
