The UWC movement is about more than just our students’ time at their school, college or programme. A UWC education is transformational and the start of a lifelong journey. Most alumni apply their commitment to UWC values throughout their lives, so that the benefits to the individual of a UWC education spread to whole communities. Almost 40,000 students have graduated from UWC since the first college, UWC Atlantic College was founded in 1962. UWC alumni work in a diverse range of fields– in medicine, education, international relations, nongovernmental organisations, business, politics, arts and the media – and they all share a determination to make a difference.
