Learning for life and the future

In addition to school teaching, extracurricular learning is also a central aspect at the UWCs. There are a variety of social and cultural activities at each UWC. This includes the work with elderly people, refugees or on a nearby farm. In addition, the students are able to take part in a wide range of sporting and artistic activities, such as theatre, dance, filmmaking and photography. In UWCs, there is hardly an activity that does not exist.


UWCs strongly encourage individual learning, taking on responsibility, passing on knowledge, overcoming challenges and developing and successfully implementing one's own projects - either alone or in a team. It is all about strengthening self-confidence, attaining one’s personal potential and experiencing new limits.
