Welcome to UWCSEA


Welcome to UWCSEA

Caroline Margaret Elliot

Carma Elliot CMG OBE
College President

Welcome to UWCSEA – a community united by our inspirational shared mission, warmly embracing students and their families from almost 100 different nations to our two campuses in Singapore. 

Established nearly 50 years ago, our community embodies everything the UWC movement stands for: concern  for others, the willingness to accept responsibility, and tenacity in pursuit of the truth. What also distinguishes our students is how much they give service to others: their compassion and commitment are writ large in the many hundreds of hours of impactful service the College bears witness to every year, across a hugely diverse range of activities, and which we celebrate as much as our academic achievements.

I am so proud to be part of this community as the first College President, working together with the leadership teams to drive our strategy. I am joined by a committed staff which is second to none, who are professionally curious and always striving to do their utmost for the students – fostering curiosity, caring, compassion and empathy. On a personal level, I am a great believer in the power of kindness, and I have been guided in this by one of my favourite quotes from the Dalai Lama:

Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.

I feel very much at home at UWCSEA. As a diplomat for over 25 years, and having spent much of my adult life in Asia, all of my professional experiences to date have affirmed for me the enduring importance and relevance of the work captured in our UWC mission. Looking ahead, as our College story continues to unfold, and aligned with our mission and vision of building a peaceful, sustainable future, I look forward to working with our community as we face the future, and as our students write the alumni stories we will be celebrating well into the future.

If you are looking for a transformative educational experience for your child, one which is based on enquiry, on building understanding and trust, and which inspires each student to create a more peaceful and sustainable future, then UWC South East Asia is the school for you.

We look forward to welcoming you to our community.
