The striking feature of the UWC is that they embrace the entire world. They are unique and they are conscious of their responsibilities.

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.

Sir John Daniel

Chair of UWC International Board and International Council 

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

Foundation Programme

The one-year Foundation Programme (FP) offers a rigorous curriculum based on the UWC experiential education model that aims to develop the competencies needed to become independent lifelong learners who can make a positive impact in the world. The programme’s holistic nature provides the essential building blocks required for a smooth and seamless transition into the IB Diploma Programme (DP).

In addition to full access to the co-curricular Zhi Xing programme and the residential programme, UWC CSC’s Foundation Programme offers a carefully curated range of prescribed and free choice subjects. The subjects are designed to build upon students’ knowledge while cultivating key transferrable skills, from critical thinking to research and collaboration, to succeed in the IB Diploma Programme. In each subject, learning is driven by inquiry, focused on concepts, and grounded in real-world local and global contexts to develop globally-minded students with an appreciation of the complexity and diversity of human interactions.
