Cambridge students already get an exceptional and deep education, kindled by some of the world's best minds. To thrive in the world, however, skills outside your academic subject also deserve the same purposefulness and attention. 


The Changemaker programme is built around 4 clusters of attributes. These clusters have been designed drawing on research from psychology, leadership, sustainability, anticipation studies, education, community-building, innovation and business: and on our collective experience leading changemaking initiatives

 

Each element of the programme is designed to layer up skills, mindsets and practices across these four areas.
