Colleges and schools

UWC college and schools follow one of two models

  • Colleges which offer a two year pre-university diploma, the International Baccalaureate (IB).
  • Schools which offer the IB Diploma as well as pre-16 curricula



The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma is one of the most well regarded and widely known secondary school qualifications in the world and is recognised by the world’s leading universities. UWC helped establish the IB Diploma in the 1960s and is committed to ensuring its relevance through the introduction of new school based syllabi at the colleges and schools.
