Transformative Learning

At UWC Thailand, we are committed to nurturing great human beings with the knowledge, skills, dispositions and values that transcend time. We provide an education where students develop into curious inquirers who are encouraged to ask deep questions. In doing so we seek that they are challenged and transformed in their thinking and their understanding and beliefs about themselves, others and the world and that inspire in them active and driven response.

Our integrated and holistic educational approach emphasizes learning by doing; problem solving and critical thinking; understanding and action; collaboration and cooperation; social responsibility and civic-mindedness; individualization and personalization; and community and service.
