World impact
Enabling distinguished individuals from the public, private or not-for-profit sectors to take up to one year out to develop for the next stage of their impact on the world.

Transformational Leadership Fellowships allow distinguished individuals from the public, private or not-for-profit sectors to take up to one year out, part-time, to engage with the latest academic thinking, broaden their perspectives, and develop a working proposal for the next stage of their impact on the world.

The programme is customised and centres around a series of one-to-one tutorials with leading Oxford faculty.

“The Transformational Leadership Fellowship was a truly life-changing experience for me. To have the opportunity and space to learn from some of the most brilliant academics on the planet, to get to know the next generation of global leaders from the MPP course and most importantly be made to feel part of the wonderful community of staff and educators was a real privilege. It allowed me to reset my personal goals and ambition and to answer the question of how I might be useful in public life.”

“I found the Transformational Leadership Fellowship to be a journey of re-evaluation and self-discovery. It is not simply an academy of learning but is really designed for introspective soul searching. The beauty of the TLF is its ability to refocus the mind on self-transformation as foundational to any transformational leadership initiative. As leaders who are in a transitional phase in life and somewhat unsure of what next steps to take, the TLF is a useful reminder that what we need to excel is embedded within us, therefore we can achieve whatever we put our minds on to do.”

Tonye Cole, Transformational Leadership Fellow 2020-22
