Are you age 14-17? Do you see issues in the world that you want to change? Do you want to do your post-16 education in a school that doesn't only focus on grades? Do you want to understand other cultures and world views to your own?

UWC schools are like no other, as are our students. By bringing together young people from diverse backgrounds, and with differing experiences and views of the world, we create an environment that inspires tomorrow’s leaders and change-makers.

This event is an opportunity to come along to learn more about the UWC schools, the application process, potential scholarships, the experience of going to an international boarding school, and everything in between. The event is hosted by UWC alumni, and we welcome prospective students, parents, and teachers to come along to find out more.

Trustees (Voluntary Roles)

Volunteers: UWC GB needs you to help deliver its plans in 2019 and beyond!  Four posts for volunteers to join the GB National Committee.

The National Committee is made up of a group of volunteers who work to support the United World Colleges in this country.  We are currently keen to recruit four new volunteer trustees to help lead our work on promoting the UWC Movement, finding and selecting great students and enabling our community of alumni, their families, and friends of UWC, to keep in touch and do great things.  Please find the details here: National Committee Volunteer Trustees: Openings in 2019

Thank you.
