UWC makes education a force to unite people, nations and cultures for peace and a sustainable future

Why Choose UWC?

UWC schools are unique, and so are our students. You’ll be part of a challenging, supportive, diverse community that inspires tomorrow’s agents of change.

We bring together people from many different backgrounds, cultures and circumstances. Our students are selected based on their character, compassion and potential. And our generous supporters help us provide scholarships for those who need them. 

You’re a person with potential, facing a world of possibility. So why might UWC be the perfect place for you?

Because you see issues in the world that you want to change.

UWC won’t just help you acquire knowledge. We help you apply it. Our students are passionate about addressing issues that matter to them and their communities. You’ll build the skills to make a difference, and the confidence to take action.

Because you are willing to study hard, but you also want to learn through action.

Academic achievement is important, and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) is a rigorous and demanding curriculum. But we understand there’s more to your potential than that. You’ll explore community engagement projects, trips, physical activities, dialogues and discussions, and personal projects, and find out more about who you really are.
