Welcome to the home of the United World College National Committee of Great Britain!

The United World Colleges are a group of sixth-form colleges across the world where young people aged 16-19 study for the International Baccalaureate diploma. 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.

This website serves to answer all of your questions about the application procedure, UWC activities in Great Britain and how you can get involved.
