The Swiss UWC Organisation

The UWC Swiss Association represents the UWC in Switzerland. It is an independent, non-profit association, run by a voluntary board and supervised by a patronage committee. In addition to recruiting and selecting candidates from Switzerland, the UWC Swiss Association also coordinates the funding and awarding of scholarships.


The UWC Swiss Association maintains an active network for all UWC alumni in Switzerland, as well as for students and alumni from Switzerland abroad. The annual meeting for members takes place in a different Swiss city each year and local get-togethers take place regularly. For more information visit us on Facebook, and you can also download our annual report here


Our bylaws are available in German and French
