Corendon and UWC

UWC is an international education movement that has been using education as a means to create a more peaceful and sustainable world since 1962. To achieve this, young people from all over the world are selected to participate in a unique educational program at one of the eighteen schools and colleges worldwide, including in Maastricht. Potential students between the ages of 16 and 18 are selected through national committees in collaboration with partners such as UNHCR, SOS Children’s Villages, and Teach for All.

Thanks to a UWC education, our students are able to lift themselves and their communities out of poverty and make a contribution to the development of their countries. The statement by Nelson Mandela, the patron of the United World College, continues to empower our students and alumni every day: “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
