אודות: הUWC במאסטריכט הוקם בשנת 2009 עם ההתמזגות של שני בתי הספר הבין לאומיים בעיר (בית הספר התיכון ובית הספר היסודי). הUWC מציע את תוכנית הIB לתלמידים בתוך המסגרת הרחבה של בית הספר, ובכך נותן הזדמנות לתלמידים בגילאים צעירים יותר להיחשף לערכי הUWC.

הקמפוס: הקולג' משתמש בתשתיות בית הספר הבין לאומי הקיים, הממוקם במזרח העיר. קמפוס חדש לקולג' נמצא בבנייה והוא ייפתח ב2013. המתקנים כוללים כיתות, מעבדות, חדרי מוזיקה ואומנות, מעבדת מחשבים, שני אולמי ספורט (אחד עם קיר טיפוס) וקפיטריה. עד שנת 2015, UWC מאסטריכט ייחנך כ950 תלמידים, שכ200 מהם ייבחרו ע"י ועדות לאומיות ויקבלו מלגה. תלמידי הUWC חיים במגורים המפוזרים במרכז העיר.

מעבר ללימודים: כל תלמידי בית הספר מעורבים בשירות לקהילה ואחראים לארגון פרוייקט התנדבות משלהם. חינוך בנושאים גלובליים משולב בתוכנית הלימודים משנות היסודי המוקדמות של בית הספר. רוב התלמידים מגיעים לכיתות הלימוד ע"י אופניים, כחלק מהותי מהתרבות ההולנדית.

Three Unique Features

  • National Public School - UWC Maastricht is the only UWC school operating within a national public school funding context, educating students from preschool to high school.
  • Youth Social Entrepreneurship (YSE) & Student-led Conferences - The YSE initiative gives students the skills to identify problems in the community and design specific solutions in the form of social entrepreneurial projects. Many annual conferences - Tedx Maastricht, Youth Environmental Sustainability, International Peace Conference, Theory of Knowledge Conference – are entirely student led.
  • Serving the Local Community - An ongoing effort at UWC Maastricht is to bridge the gap between the School and the town community.

The annual two-day Theory of Knowledge (TOK) Conference provides students with the opportunity to engage critically with the world around them together with prestigious keynote speakers.

During the four-day International Peace Conference, peacemakers, challengers, advocates, and experts from around the world share their knowledge and inspire through lectures. Students who have experienced the absence of peace or have personal ties to various forms of conflict offer unique insights and solution-based discussions.
