Your future is important to us, and we want to prepare you for everything the graduate world could throw at you. So it’s not just about making your CV look good, it’s also about enabling you to be resilient, innovative and socially aware when you start your job hunt. With these qualities, you will be miles ahead of your peers when it comes to landing the first step in your career.

One of the ways you can achieve this is through our commitment to social enterprise. Whether as a paid employee, a volunteer or through a work placement, you’ve got the opportunity to earn some money, improve your CV and use your skills to help the local social enterprises.

Take a look at our Enterprise Club to find out more about our dedication to enterprise.

Changemaker Award

Making a difference to the world around you is a rewarding experience, but sometimes potential employers miss the importance and impact of the good you’ve done. That’s why we have a unique recognition scheme, that credits your innovation and effort.

All students are given the opportunity to complete the Changemaker Award, at Bronze, Silver or Gold levels. Address a problem, come up with a social venture to counter it and we will support you to plan and pilot any product or business idea, so you can launch your venture when you graduate.

You will be mentored by other students, with support from relevant academic staff through an online portal, and have access to network with students around the world through our Dialogue Cafe conferencing system. You’ll also have the opportunity to take part in summer adventures in Kenya and other countries. As a graduate of the programme you will be internationally recognised by Ashoka U as a Changemaker of the future.
