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.

As in previous years, UWC Changshu China opens its EA3 (rolling admission) round to students who are a good fit for our school but missed our early and regular admission cycles due to various reasons. EA3 round is now OPEN. In recent years we have enrolled a dozen or so students per year. Due to the current worldwide situation, we are committed to increasing capacity in order to accommodate students who live in China or abroad.
