East Campus

Message from the Head of Campus

It is my pleasure to welcome you to our East Campus.  

Singapore is well known as a global hub for education, and UWCSEA has been at the forefront of international schools, and the development of education in Singapore for over 40 years. As a member of the UWC movement our East Campus offers a programme that is globally connected, mission driven and richly embedded within South East Asian as well as global issues. Today our bustling, vibrant campus is home to 2,480 students from 75 nationalities, speaking 57 different languages, including 160 boarders and 40 UWCSEA and UWC National Committee scholars. 

A benchmark of both educational and sustainable design, our campus is centrally located in the fast-developing hub of Tampines. It provides outstanding facilities for academics, the arts, sports and professional development (through our Centre for International Education). We are proud that the East Campus has become a home to so many families where the whole community learns together. 

At the heart of your experience at East will be the deep feeling that you are at a United World College. Throughout our campus there is a palpable vibe of positive energy, commitment to action, discovery, innovation, and leadership. Our students are engaged in their learning, supported by our enthusiastic and caring teachers and staff. This atmosphere makes a difference in the learning of our students and the attitudes of our community as a whole. 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 and a genuine commitment to embrace a wide variety of challenges and take action.

As you explore our learning programme and the different sections of our school on this website I know you will gain a sense of both our vitality and our focus. I also encourage you to visit us in person and experience UWCSEA.
