The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma is one of the most well regarded and widely known secondary school qualifications in the world and is recognised by the world’s leading universities. UWC helped establish the IB Diploma in the 1960s and is committed to ensuring its relevance through the introduction of new school based syllabi at the colleges and schools.

At all our schools and colleges, academic achievements are put into perspective with a demanding mix of community engagement, international affairs, physical activities, service commitments and creative pursuits.
