What support is available to students at UWC School or College?

According to their needs, 70% of students get full or partial financial aid.
UWC is committed to the support, growth, and welfare of its students.
In order to help our students negotiate the frequently challenging experience of living and studying in a residential school setting—often far from home—while pursuing a demanding academic and co-curricular curriculum, UWC recognizes the vital role that spiritual care plays.
In addition to serving as houseparents, student advisors, peer support networks, nurses, counselors, deans of students, health and wellness specialists, heads of residential life, psychologists, and psychotherapists, all UWC locations have a team of on-site staff who also provide access to local and campus healthcare.
