Change Agents allows students to change your University experience

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, ranging from module fairs and study blogs, to student journals and academic conferences. 

Starting a project

The way we support Students as Change Agents projects has changed from September 2016. We've introduced a new process for projects to follow to ensure that every student has the same level of support and training to help you get the most out of your project and help you meet your project objectives on time.
