United World College (UWC) schools, colleges and programmes deliver a challenging and transformative educational experience to a diverse cross section of students, inspiring them to create a more peaceful and sustainable future.

The National Committee of Great Britain is responsible for selecting students aged 16 to 18 from the UK to attend United World Colleges. 

We also support these students while at their colleges, and raise awareness of UWC in the UK.
