Life in the 21st century places many changing demands on students making the transition through adolescence. They are at a crucial period of personal, social, physical and intellectual development.
The International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme is designed for students aged 11 till 16 to help them to find a sense of belonging in the ever-changing and increasingly interconnected world around them.
After finishing MYP, students can continue to the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. They are joined by students aged 16 who come from regular Dutch schools and would like to undertake an international experience and by residential students who are selected through UWC National Committees from all over the world. This rich match is a unique arrangement! Together they work towards peace and a sustainable future.
Our world needs young people who are driven by a common sense of humanity and purpose. Young people who want to develop their skills and knowledge, not just to better their own lives, but also the lives of others. We need them to work together, across all backgrounds, nations and cultures, to build a more peaceful and sustainable future.
UWC Maastricht relies on fees to offer the robust educational programme that is demanded by the UWC Educational Model. The fee for year 2021-2022 for the Middle Year Programme is €9535, for the Diploma Programme (day students) it’s €9870.
200 Diploma Programme students live on campus. These residential students are housed in the residence buildings. They live there in small groups, with four students sharing a bedroom. Students come together in the Mensa for breakfast and dinner.
The Board and Leadership Team of UWC Maastricht affirm their commitment to the wellbeing and safety of all members of the UWC Maastricht community. That is why the school provides training and guidance to ensure the full implementation of the safeguarding policies and procedures.
