UWC  Logo The value of a UWC education
A UWC education is life-changing. We empower change makers and future leaders through the delivery of a unique programme in a deliberately diverse community. The educational ethos of UWC combines rigorous academic standards with experiential and inquiry-based learning in areas such as sustainability, intercultural dialogue, social justice, conflict resolution and social entrepreneurship. UWC students come together from very diverse backgrounds, including the most marginalised. Access to a UWC education is given independent of socio-economic background, supported through a rigorous admission process and a comprehensive scholarship programme: around 65% of UWC students attending the final two years of secondary school are awarded a full or partial scholarship. UWC’s 60,000 alumni are prized by top universities worldwide and, in their professional lives, they occupy positions of influence in industry, finance, civil society, government, healthcare, academia and the media.

UWC Maastricht is committed to upholding the highest standards in student safeguarding. Throughout the application process we will be assessing your suitability to work with children and young adults and will ask for previous police records in countries you have worked in.
