Welcome to East Campus
Head of UWCSEA East
It is my great pleasure to welcome you to East Campus. As you explore our learning programme and the information on these pages about the different schools that together create our community, I know you will gain a sense of our mission, our vitality and our focus. I encourage you to visit or connect with us and experience UWCSEA. You will find a very warm welcome here.
In a country that is internationally renowned for leading development and achievement in global education, UWCSEA has been at the forefront of the international school community for nearly 50 years. We are driven by the UWC mission and we offer a programme that is globally connected and richly embedded within South East Asia and beyond. Our bustling, vibrant campus is currently home to over 2,500 students from 69 nationalities, speaking 78 different languages. 161 members of our student community are boarders, including 48 UWCSEA and UWC National Committee scholars.
We have created our campus to be sustainable and to allow for the most innovative of educational practice. At UWCSEA East, we believe that anything is possible. In our central location in the fast-developing community and business hub of Tampines, we provide outstanding facilities for academics, the Arts, sports and professional learning. We have developed as a community hub in our own right—families learn together with students and teachers at East Campus. It is a truly exceptional and extremely safe environment.
At the heart of your experience at East Campus will be the deep feeling that you are at a United World College. Throughout our campus, there is a palpable feeling of positive energy, commitment to action, discovery, innovation and leadership. Our students are engaged in their learning, supported by our enthusiastic and caring staff. Walk onto East Campus at any time from early morning to early evening and you will find activity, engagement and fun. Whether you meet our youngest Kindergarten students learning about schools in Cambodia or a Grade 11 student planning for an independent project week, you will sense a genuine commitment to embrace challenges and to take action. Our students learn to take responsibility for their own lives and we see them graduate with the intention of making an impact on their world.
Academics are very important to our families and they are important to us. Our graduates score outstandingly well, year on year, in examinations. However, a UWC education is about much more than academics alone. Our students leave the College highly qualified, confident, independent and committed to making a contribution to society. They leave us equipped to deal with the challenges of an uncertain world.
As you explore our learning programme and the different sections of our school on these pages, I know you will gain a sense of both our mission, our vitality and our focus. I encourage you to visit us in person and experience UWCSEA. You will find a warm welcome here.

The level of creativity and flexibility was what helped me make the decision to take DT as an IGCSE.
The holistic learning at UWCSEA is great and my son and I are enjoying every bit of it.
At UWCSEA, my son is exploring, innovating, improvising and learning. He has developed a passion for helping others and I couldn't be prouder.
It was great experience to build team chemistry.

The holistic learning at UWCSEA is great and my son and I are enjoying every bit of it. We are taking part in all the community activities and thoroughly enjoy them ... a big thanks to the entire UWCSEA family. Its like one big family for us! The school provides an holistic education par excellence and an engaging community life, and he feels quite confident and engaged having built up a lasting passion and a lot of friends in his years at school. All in all, it's the best school that I have ever seen; their IB Diploma incorporates all the criteria that go to the holistic learning of a child, and at times it goes beyond the curriculum.
Ranita Gupta, Grade 2 Parent, East Campus
We are a family that believe in honesty, and in helping people. We believe in 3R's - Reuse, Recycle and Restore to protect Mother Earth. I'm proud that my son is a part of the UWCSEA family and he is learning how to give back to society. He has started to feel for fellow children in Kuma, Cambodia and has developed a passion for helping others. At UWCSEA, he has the opportunity to explore, innovate, improvise and learn. He showed great resilience during the home based learning phase, as he tried to do things independently and showed some great thinking while doing his work. I couldn't be prouder.
