The learning programme at UWCSEA consists of five interlinking elements: academics, activities, outdoor education, personal and social education and service. While students do not spend an equal amount of time on each of the elements (for much of the year, the academic element takes up most of their day), the College places equal value on them. The elements combine to provide our students with a holistic, values-based education that develops them as individuals and as members of a a global society.
The learning programme is underpinned by a set of learning principles, which define what we know about learning, and drive our learning programme design and delivery. At the heart of the programme are the College mission and values, and the UWCSEA profile, the skills and qualities that our students develop through the learning programme.
