United World Colleges
"United World Colleges (UWC) brings together students from all over the world at
pre-university level, regardless of their ability to pay. Students live together
in an environment designed to foster international understanding, tolerance and
peace. It is common for more than 80 nationalities to be represented in a College
at any one time.
Today, there are ten United World Colleges in the UK, Singapore, Canada, Swaziland,
the USA, Italy, Venezuela, Hong Kong, Norway and India. Each College has its own
distinctive character but all share a common mission, which is more relevant today
than ever. Extensive community service, high academic standards and a wide range
of cultural and outdoor activities are features of a UWC education.
World Swim Against Malaria brings together students - and teachers - in all our
Colleges. It’s an exciting opportunity for the whole of the UWC movement to work
towards a single goal, and we’re delighted to be involved. Please follow our progress
