Your time at UWC Thailand is just the beginning. The beauty and the strength of the UWC movement is not just the allegiance alumni feel to their UWC school or college, but a sense of being part of a global “tribe” with the UWC values at its heart. Being part of the UWC community will shape and inform you for the rest of your life.
Whether it’s at university, while traveling, when you move to a city or in your workplace, you will meet members of the UWC community wherever you go. And the best thing is that UWC alumni are always there to support each other, whether you need career advice, need a couch to sleep on for a night, or are looking for collaborators to start a project with, there is always someone willing to help – or someone who knows someone.
UWC aims to support our community in connecting with each other and collaborating. Through organised events around the world, often focusing on UWC themes to connect members of the UWC community in person. UWC also provides an online platform and mobile app that allows alumni to connect with and find community members wherever they are. UWC also provides opportunities to learn beyond their time at UWC, and support initiatives that enable the UWC community to be a true force for a peaceful, just and sustainable future.
