UWC makes education a force to unite people, nations and cultures for peace and a sustainable future. UWC schools, colleges and programmes deliver a challenging and transformative educational experience to a diverse cross section of the world’s students, inspiring them to create a more peaceful and sustainable future. Young people admitted to UWC’s schools, colleges and programmes are empowered to them to face tensions within their societies, to promote environmental and social responsibility, and to take the initiative for leadership in their communities.
UWC has flourished since the 1960s under the successive presidencies of Lord Mountbatten, HRH the Prince of Wales, Nelson Mandela, and HM Queen Noor of Jordan. Today there are thirteen UWC schools and colleges across five continents. At most campuses, an average of 70 different nationalities are represented at any one time. Since 1962, UWC students have come from over 180 countries. To date, nearly 40,000 students have graduated from UWC.
The UWC experience combines rigorous learning, personal initiative and action, an extensive service leadership programme, and vigorous engagement with global affairs.
The UWC learning culture is substantially shaped by the cultural, ethnic and socioeconomic diversity of its students.
