UWC makes education a force to unite people, nations and cultures for peace and a sustainable future
IN THIS SECTION
Joining a school can be a big change. You’re part of a diverse group, often away from your home country, mastering a new language and a challenging curriculum.
At UWC, we make sure that all of our students feel supported, inspired and welcomed in their school community.
Each UWC school has an on-site team that supports your well-being including but not limited to: house-parents, student advisors, peer support networks, nurses and counsellors, deans of students, health and wellness specialists, heads of residential life, psychologists and psychotherapists, and healthcare providers both on campus and locally.
We also give students the tools to reflect on the part they play in their communities. We encourage them to think about how they treat others, and how they can help create a more respectful community, where everyone feels happy, safe and secure. During their induction, students also receive training to help develop their cultural sensitivity, and be better community members.
Pastoral staff regularly meet to ensure they too are working towards creating a healthy community with common goals. They are also offered forums which enable pastoral staff across the UWC movement to collaborate and support each other.
