Quick overview: While the IBDP curriculum is at the core of the academic life of every UWC school and college, UWC education goes beyond the requirements set by the IB program. Because every UWC school and college has a different student body and staff representing a wide variety of national, socio-economic, cultural, linguistic, political, educational circles, UWC recognizes that the curriculum must allow for as many interpretations and perceptions as there are students in the program.

  • Studies in Language and Literature;
  • Language learning;
  • People and societies;
  • Science;
  • Mathematics;
  • Arts (instead of an arts course, students can choose to study another science, society, or a language course).
