Every year, young students from around the world enrol in our Summer Programmes to tackle important issues such as social justice, sustainability, identity, and more in a first-hand UWC experience.

Our Summer Programmes started in 2009 with a mission to give the UWC experience to a broader audience. Students from around the world — Argentina, Colombia, the USA, Korea, and other countries — have attended our Summer Programmes since inception.

We’ve taken the best aspects of a UWC school — living in a diverse community; experiential education with a strong focus on real-world issues; engagement with causes we’re passionate about; and excellent teachers, facilitators, and partner organizations — and then put them into an immersive, intensive, exciting series of socially relevant learning experiences!

  • Who Can Apply?

    Students between the ages of 16 to 18 who are currently enrolled in high school.

  • When?

    Summer Programmes will take place in June 2021 (all programmes will have different durations). It is possible to do any two or all three programmes back-to-back for a truly immersive UWC experience.

  • Where?

    All programmes for 2021 will be residential experiences on the MUWCI campus. We're currently only accepting entries from individuals residing in India.
