We welcome visitors to our campus, from potential applicants and their families, school groups that would like to make use of our Biodiversity Reserve, educators who want to see how UWC functions, and for our Akshara programme.
Visits by Prospective Students, Families, or Educators
You must experience MUWCI to understand whether our community of learners is the right match for you! An essential part of this experience is walking around the campus and engaging with current students, teachers, and our leadership team. We offer in-person and virtual Open Days between September and January to give interested students and parents from various regions and countries an opportunity to learn more about our unique program, the UWC movement, and the admissions process. Open Days often take place on weekdays. We know this can be challenging for some of our visitors. Still, we are convinced that students and parents must experience what a UWC looks like during a regular school day.
Education can be a force of social transformation if we develop strong partnerships across cultural contexts, generations, disciplines, and sectors! Therefore, we love to welcome educators on our beautiful hill to explore how we might contribute to more peaceful and sustainable societies and what the future of education might hold.
If you have missed our Open Days and would like to connect with our admissions team, please email us at [email protected] with your questions or to set up a call.

Visits by Architectural Students
Our award-winning architecture combines modern architectural design with locally sourced materials and sensitivity to its environmental impact, and covers approximately one-third of our campus. Architect Christopher Benninger was awarded a Business week/Architectural Record Award in 2000 and the Aga Khan Award for Architecture in 2001 for his use of local materials and architecture in the design of our campus.
Students wishing to visit and photograph the campus should fill this form to schedule a visit. Please note that the visits can be scheduled only on dates the College is holding an Open Day (as listed in the form linked above). Visitors should note that photography of the campus architecture is only permitted in areas where campus community members are not present.
