Academic life

What we offer?

rning programme is made up of five interlinking elements that together provide a life-defining education for our students: academics, activities, outdoor education, personal and social education and service. These elements combine to provide our students with a values-based education that develops them as individuals and as members of a global society.

The programme is based around our UWCSEA profile, which describes the skills and qualities we expect all members of our community to embody, as global citizens and independent learners. Learners at UWCSEA are committed to being aware, able and active and, through their influence and leadership, to inspiring others to work towards a common goal for the greater good.

Supporting the profile are the learning principles, which describe what we know about how students learn. These principles inform our practice and help us to develop our curriculum..

Primary School (Infant and Junior) - Kindergarten 1 to Grade 5

The Primary School curriculum is designed to enhance a child's natural curiosity and sense of inquiry, and to foster independence and an enthusiasm for learning.

Communication, thinking, research, social and self-management skills are developed in a progressive order, recognising children's differing learning styles and the varied paces at which they learn as they progress through to Grade 5.

Middle School - Grades 6 to 8

As students progress to the Middle School they refine the core interdisciplinary skills initiated in the Primary School and have more subject specialist teachers guiding them in the fundamental subject-specific skills required for higher studies in related areas.

Students have a broad and balanced range of subjects, with the opportunity to develop in all relevant areas; from physical, technical, creative, numerate and deductive, rational and experimental, to empathic and evaluative.

Upper School - Grades 9 and 10

Students study for seven or eight IGCSEs over a two-year course in Grades 9 and 10. Those joining the College in Grade 10 undertake the Foundation IB programme, entailing the study of 10 subjects. Both programmes prepare students with subject-specific skills and knowledge as a foundation for the IB Diploma.

Many students study the College's own IGCSE-recognised, interdisciplinary issues-based course to expose them to the skills of critical thinking, interpreting biases, communication and internationalism which are applicable in the IB Diploma.

Senior School - Grades 11 and 12

The majority of students in Grade 11 and 12 prepare for an IB Diploma. This internationally-recognised pre-university qualification enjoys an excellent reputation with schools and universities worldwide appreciating its academic breadth, rigour, and personal challenge. A small number of students study for a reduced range of subject-specific IB certificate courses.

Dover Campus is the longest standing IB Diploma School in the Asia Pacific region and one of the largest IB Diploma schools in the world. Our experience of the IB Diploma Programme led to our development of the Grade 10 Foundation IB programme. The UWC movement was influential in the conception of the IB Diploma model and continues to be part of its development.

Both campuses are IB World Schools, accredited to offer the IB Diploma.
