Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world
Nelson Mandela

Welcome to UWC Maastricht!

UWC Maastricht brings together young people from all directions of life to work together towards a more peaceful and sustainable future.

We offer a state of the art international education for students from all age groups, equipping them with the attitudes, skills and knowledge to live a meaningful and flourishing life. The UWC educational experience is about knowing and acting. We nurture an understanding of the world and its major challenges, and help students discover how they can serve others and make a positive contribution to society.

The founder of the UWC movement Kurt Hahn once said that if a school were a ship, then students should be seen as the crew members and not as the passengers on board. This means that we consider our students as our greatest resource, as the crew members who will steer the school forward. Students are actively encouraged to develop initiative and responsibility in all areas of school life. Together with their teachers, they are invited to create an educational experience in line with their ambitions and talents and in pursuit of the common good.

This website gives you a brief introduction to our school. You will find information about our educational programmes, our mission and vision, and about the wealth of activities going on at the school throughout the academic year.

Yet the best way to discover our school is to visit us in Maastricht and to meet our staff and students. At UWC Maastricht we are always looking for new crew members, so you are invited to get in touch and become part of the experience.

Welcome on board!

Lodewijk van Oord
Head of College
