Our Approach to Student Autonomy

Life at Mahindra United World College of India (MUWCI) offers students an opportunity to live independently and responsibly. We provide a safe space where students can enjoy their freedom while having support structures to ensure their safety.

Our commitment to sustaining a healthy, autonomous environment begins as early as the admissions stage. Applications are screened rigorously to find prospective students who demonstrate personal responsibility.

Once on campus, students can find support from their Advisors, Wada and House Parents, Wellbeing Psychologist, and Head of Student Life to help them lead a successful independent lifestyle.

As our students grow more confident in making the most of the campus’s opportunities, they can realize their full potential and thrive at MUWCI.

A Typical Day

Classes are held between 8:30 a.m. to 3:50 p.m. on weekdays. Some afternoons and evenings, students will have scheduled activities (Trivenis). Beyond this time, they are free to participate in extracurricular activities and meetings, work on projects, and spend time with other students.

Saturdays are completely free, while activities are often planned for Sundays. If they have no prior commitments, students may go off campus after school and on weekends, provided they return by the designated time and have parental permission.

Wada Parents check in every night to ensure all students are safe and accounted for.

Guidelines & Code of Conduct

All our students agree to abide by the Code of Conduct. This ensures their safety on campus and fosters a healthy, respectful environment for all.

  • Students are expected to manage their time well and attend all classes and co-curricular activities. If their attendance falls below the requirement, their advisor will work with them to understand why and help them find a solution. Further, unexcused absences will result in disciplinary action.

  • Movement Restriction

    Students must be present in their wada for nightly check-ins at the designated times and adhere to the noise and movement guidelines. These guidelines ensure their safety on campus and help them wind down at the end of the day and get adequate rest.

    Respecting the guidelines is essential for the student's health and consideration for their peers.

  • Relationships

    Sexual activity is forbidden in public areas of campus, including in students’ rooms.

  • Substances

    Our campus is alcohol, tobacco, and drug-free, and we have a Zero Tolerance Policy towards the consumption of drugs. Any student involved with illegal drugs will be asked to leave the college.

    However, if a student comes forward seeking help for the use of drugs/alcohol or self-harm/harm to others, we have a Safe Haven Policy to help them get better without disciplinary proceedings.


Our students are human and can make mistakes. There are multiple stages of disciplinary action, and our primary goal is to help the student avoid a repeat offense rather than punish them right away.

Violations of the Code of Conduct are treated differently according to severity (e.g., consumption of illegal substances is dealt with more harshly than attendance requirements).

While we encourage our students to live independently and responsibly, we understand that parents are interested in knowing how their child is faring on campus. We send reports twice a year to the parents informing them of their child’s academic conduct and any disciplinary issues that may have arisen. This helps us achieve a balance between our students’ autonomy and parental involvement.
