Leading for Impact

LFI Cohort 2017

Leading for Impact is offered exclusively to University of Oxford postgraduate students. It is ideally suited if you are engaged in social impact and wish to develop your skills as an effective leader.

This programme involves a substantial time commitment, combining an intensive weekend (2.5 days) with four peer coaching sessions and a closing workshop session.

Leading for Impact takes place over the Hilary term (beginning in January). It gives you the chance for great personal development and the opportunity to build your entrepreneurial skills.

Who is the programme for?

  • Students who are looking to pursue social impact careers who also wish to develop their personal leadership and teamwork skills.
  • Graduate students from the University of Oxford who are preparing for their next career move and are engaged in social impact.
  • Exceptional candidates who are looking for a group of like-minded ‘doers’ and want to be an active part of this community.

Selection Criteria

Revised criteria will follow shortly for our 2019 programme.


Here is some feedback from our 2017 Leading for Impact Fellows:

‘The whole weekend was beyond super. It was very interactive, interesting and inspiring…The facilitators made interacting with each other easier and made us all feel comfortable enough to be vulnerable enough to share information and experiences together. I really enjoyed the weekend and felt it was nothing less than perfect.'

'Moving out of our normal context and surroundings really has value in terms of creating a restorative and reflective space.'
