Background

UWC is a global family of schools with a powerful difference. With a shared goal of working towards global peace and sustainability, we bring together a diverse range of young people from around the world to study in one of our 17 schools on four continents. Our approach to education crosses the traditional boundaries of academic excellence, we equip our students with the skills they need to become global change-makers. Here they learn how to communicate across cultural boundaries, they design and engage in initiatives that transform their lives and the lives of others and they become part of global community of over 60,000 proud alumni.


The UWC International Office is the executive arm of UWC International, a UK registered charity, and is situated at the heart of the UWC movement. It is currently located in an office in central London and a second office will soon be opened in Berlin. 

UWC International collaborates closely with all stakeholders from across the UWC movement, engages the UWC alumni community of more than 60,000 members and serves UWC International’s governance bodies.


Global fundraising is one of the core functions of UWC International, with over 80% of national committee selected boarding students at UWC schools and colleges receive a scholarship to enable access to a UWC education, independent of socio-economic means.
