A Multilingual Campus Environment

Almost all courses and extracurricular programs are taught in English – the common conversational language at UWC. By the end of their two years at UWC, all students speak fluent English, regardless what level they started off with. It is also possible and encouraged to learn the local language at UWC colleges in non-English-speaking countries.


UWC teachers and staff are predominately native speakers with outstanding professional experience in multilingual contexts. By sharing the celebrations, theater performances, and daily meals of campus life with them as well as with English-speaking students, what was once a foreign language becomes second nature.
