Middle Years Programme: Beyond The Classroom

UWC Maastricht wants to equip students with life skills needed to ensure their social and emotional well-being. A lot of the learning happens inside the classroom, but we encourage students to further develop their talents through participation in Service as Action, Community Clubs and the Music School.

Service as Action

A strong commitment to meaningful service is one of the things that distinguishes UWC schools and colleges from other schools. Improving the environment, exploring diversity by working with students who are differently abled from them, determining needs in the school or local community, planning and implementing sustainability projects or awareness-raising campaigns: we encourage our students to make a positive change to the lives of others and to the environment. 


Community Clubs

In the community clubs we try to nurture our student’s grow. We create an environment in which they can show their talents. Students engage in a safe and familiar surrounding by participating in a wide range of activities like ballet, chess, sports, art, cooking and drama. 


Music School

The UWCM Music school provides a wide ranch of music lessons: guitar, clarinet, drums, bassoon, vocal and many more! The lessons contribute to the development of specific abilities like music appreciation, music literacy, technique and performance skills. The UWCM Music School encourages students to explore new horizons through the language of music, celebration of  diversity, and sharing their artistry  at various performances, events and workshops.

The lessons are open to Primary and Secondary students, UWCM staff members, and parents and take place on campus.
