Students as Change Agents

The Change Agents scheme gives you the opportunity to lead on change to the academic experience at the University of Exeter, going beyond just making suggestions to your academic reps. Any individual or group of students can identify an idea for how to improve any part of the University experience, and then you manage the development and delivery of that idea through a self-contained project. You will receive support and training from staff, and be able to develop and demonstrate real experience in leadership, teamwork and project management.

Students as Change Agents has existed at Exeter for nearly 10 years, and in that time hundreds of projects have brought student-led change to almost every part of the University. Projects have included module fairs, skills workshops, research taster activities, new peer support programmes, careers and employability events, and study vlogs. Students have even ran larger, more ambitious projects, such as setting up student journals and magazines, running student conferences, and creating a cultural integration programme for international students. 

How to get involved

The way that we support Students as Change Agents projects is changing for academic year 2016/17, and this website will be updated before September with more information on how to take part. In the meantime, if you have any particular questions about Change Agents, please contact the team:
