UWC was one of the ten members of the international schools association that created the International Baccalaureate Organization in Geneva in 1963 … today, they are taken in over 4,000 schools worldwide and have become the gold standard for university entrance.

I regard it as the foremost task of education to ensure the survival of these qualities: an enterprising curiosity, an undefeatable spirit, tenacity in pursuit, readiness for sensible self-denial and above all, compassion.

Kurt Hahn

German Educator, Founder of United World Colleges

Thank you for your interest in the opportunity to contribute to the work of UWC in China. UWC Changshu China is a fully residential community of 650 teachers and students living on our island campus on the Kuncheng Lake in Changshu.  Students in their last three years of formal education are selected  through the unique UWC National Committee System and come from diverse backgrounds and more than 100 countries and regions. The college is seeking to add to the existing faculty by appointing future focused educators, motivated to collaborate across disciplines to deliver a transformative education, allowing students the opportunity to learn experientially, in a residential context based on the UWC educational model. We are looking for committed and experienced educators who would like to equip the next generation of leaders with the knowledge, skills and aptitude they need to bring about positive peace and sustainable change in our increasingly complex world.
