  • What it’s Like to Attend a UWC Short Course

    Published 10/05/21, by Admin

    UWC short courses advance the UWC mission by bringing UWC education to a wider audience than UWC schools and colleges alone can reach. They are a great tool for engagement across the UWC movement: often run by UWC schools, colleges and national committees, short courses and summer programmes encourage leadership, collaboration and alumni involvement. An increasing number of UWC short course alumni go on to run their own short courses and educate the next generation of changemakers in line with UWC values. 

    Year on year, UWC short course alumni report significant learnings from their respective courses, across fields such as the environment, diversity, peace and conflict, migration and cultural understanding. In addition, they repeatedly report developing their soft skills and their awareness of the world and their place in it: such as critical thinking, understanding the power which they possess as individuals, exploring life outside of their comfort zone, and generally expanding their horizons.

    But don’t just take it from us - hear from UWC short course alumni below!
