What could you achieve to make the world a better place in just a matter of days or weeks?
At UWC, we believe that the answer is “a huge amount”. That’s why we offer short courses around the world. In just one to three of the most exciting weeks of your life, you’ll experience the opportunity to:
pursue a passion to progress global peace and sustainability
work on a campaign, cause or immerse yourself in a new community
develop your leadership and changemaker skills.
Our short courses and summer programmes offer you everything that makes the UWC movement and school experience unique, but without the academic programme.
On your short course, you will explore, live and share experiences with 30-60 other students from around the world. You will leave with new friends, new views, new skills, and a renewed belief that you can change communities for the better.
Courses last one to three weeks
Most courses are held June - August, with some also offered in December
Places are limited
