United World College - Overview

United World Colleges (UWC) is unique. It is the only global educational movement that brings together students from all over the world – selected on personal merit, irrespective of race, religion, politics and the ability to pay – with the explicit aim of fostering peace and international understanding.

UWC was founded in 1962 and originated in the ideas of German educationalist Kurt Hahn. Hahn believed that much could be done to overcome hostility and conflict if young people from different nations, races and religions could be brought together to learn from each other.

Today there are thirteen United World Colleges (links posted in side bar), each with its own distinctive character, but sharing a common mission and values. In the turbulent world of the twenty-first century, these values are as relevant today as they were in 1962 – perhaps more so.

UWC offers a rigorous 2 year academic program using the International Baccalaureate with a strong emphasis on community service.

President of the United World Colleges: HM QUEEN NOOR of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordon
Hon. President of the UWC International Council: MR. NELSON MANDELA, former President of the Republic of South Africa
