"WE MAKE EDUCATION A FORCE TO UNITE PEOPLE, NATIONS AND CULTURES FOR PEACE AND A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE."
UWC is an educational organization which delivers a challenging and transformational educational experience to a diverse cross-section of students. Schools, colleges and programmes aim to inspire students to create a more peaceful and sustainable future. UWC is made up of 16 schools all around the world, from Bosnia to Swaziland. The admissions process is unique: students must apply through their national committee, and although they can rank their preference of school, their eventual assignment is decided by the committee. Students commit to two years at the school, where they complete the International Baccalaureate program, a diploma program that focuses on well-rounded, global thinkers. Although the diploma and mission is the same at each UWC, each school has a slightly different focus based on their location. National committees from more than 150 countries are affiliated, sending students abroad on scholarships which makes for extremely diverse student bodies. The international focus of these schools offers a transformative education for students, inspiring them to create a more peaceful and sustainable future.
