Game Changers

Game Changers impacted my year in the best way possible and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending the programme to anyone who wants more out of their time at university.

Game Changers

Game Changers is the University of Bristol's sports leadership and volunteering programme. It provides students with online and in-person training and qualifications to volunteer in sport and physical activity in a range of areas including coaching, officiating and community outreach.

Programme overview

The programme runs continuously throughout the year to fit flexibly around your studies. You can sign up any time and join the next available session.

Students can complete a formal qualification (e.g. Level 1 Badminton Coaching) in a chosen area which will be partly reimbursed after completing the programme. Find out more about completing a formal coaching qualification.
