Alumni & Friends

Welcome to the UWC Alumni Network in Switzerland! The Alumni Network organizes events and brings UWC graduates in Switzerland together.

UWC Alumni in Switzerland

Since the foundation of the first United World College in 1962, more than 100 Swiss students have attended and graduated from a UWC. Many foreign alumni also live and work in Switzerland.


The Alumni Network of the UWC Swiss Association welcomes everyone who has attended a UWC and lives in Switzerland. The network puts alumni in touch with each other, maintains contact with UWC schools, and coordinates alumni activities with the UWC International Office.


The UWC Swiss Association regularly informs members about UWC news and events in Switzerland. Annual meetings and network get-togethers are a great opportunity to meet other alumni. For those interested, it is also possible to actively promote UWC goals – volunteers for making presentations in local schools or organizing network events are always welcome.



Connect and Stay Connected

Do you want to know if other UWC alumni live in your city? Or whether someone is studying at the same university? Are you looking for a friend's address? Or do you want to go hiking with other UWC Alumni? The Swiss Association helps you to get in contact and cultivate those contacts with other UWC Alumni.


We are in regular contact with our alumni and keep a database of graduates here and abroad. By exchanging information with the alumni coordinators of the International Office and other national committees as well we strive to build and maintain a strong UWC network in Switzerland.



Financing a Scholarship

The annual fee for donors in the UWC Swiss Association «Club of 20» is CHF 3,000. With this twenty Club of 20 members finance a full two year scholarship – or several partial scholarships.


Members of the Club of 20 also receive invitations to exclusive events, such as readings or discussion sessions related to UWC.


Interested in joining the Club of 20? Christian Schreiber, Treasurer of the UWC Swiss Association is happy to help.
