Uniting people, nations and cultures
We believe that to have a positive impact on the world we need to find and encourage young people with the comprehension and conviction to be agents of change.
Our scholars add to the diversity of UWC by sharing their traditions, their community and their stories with fellow students. Living and learning with these students bring to life global issues, an appreciation of differences and a deeper understanding of specific cultures and nations.
For a scholar, a UWC educational experience will open the doors to unimaginable opportunities; giving them a chance to take their dynamism and commitment to new levels, personally, socially and globally. It provides a remarkable chance for students to gain not only the qualifications that will set them on a lifelong path of success but to develop the personal qualities and skills that will help them to grow as responsible and resilient individuals who value service to others and commitment to care.
In 2017/2018, 110 students from 57 different countries are benefiting from a UWC education.
“The education opportunity here has been a transformational one. I’m now more aware of my responsibilities as a global citizen and learned to embrace challenges as an opportunity for further growth. In UWCSEA, a world of infinite opportunities, we all share our different cultures and learn to appreciate others with an open mind.”
