The United World College National Committee of Great Britain welcomes you!

The United World Colleges are a group of sixth-form colleges across the world where young people aged 16-19 study together for the International Baccalaureate diploma, while starting conversations about how to make the world a more peaceful and sustainable place.

The National Committee of Great Britain is responsible for selecting students from Great Britain to attending United World Colleges, supporting these students at their colleges, and raising awareness of UWC activities in Great Britain.
