“Education is not a classroom, it is not an institution, but a way of going through life”
Your time at a UWC school or college or your participation in a UWC short course is just the beginning. The beauty and the strength of the UWC network is not just the allegiance alumni feel to their UWC school or college, but a sense of being part of a global “tribe” with the UWC values at its heart. Being part of the UWC community will shape and inform you for the rest of your life.
Whether it’s at university, while traveling, when you move to a city or in your workplace, you will meet members of the UWC community wherever you go. And the best thing is that UWC alumni are always there to support each other, whether you need career advice, need a couch to sleep on for a night, or are looking for collaborators to start a project with, there is always someone willing to help - or someone who knows someone.
UWC aims to support our community in connecting with each other and collaborating. We organise events around the world, often focusing on UWC themes to connect members of the UWC community in person, which often focus on UWC themes. We also provide an online platform and mobile app that allows you to connect with and find community members wherever you are. We also provide opportunities to learn beyond your time at UWC, and support initiatives that enable the UWC community to be a true force for a peaceful, just and sustainable future.
