UWC Mahindra College (MUWCI) is part of UWC, a worldwide family of 18 international schools and colleges working towards global peace and sustainability (information on all UWC schools is available at www.uwc.org/schools). The College has a rich tradition of curricular innovation and community engagement, with a special focus on project-based and service learning.
Inside the Classroom
UWC Mahindra College offers the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program curriculum. Alongside standard courses, it offers Art, Theatre, Film, Psychology, and Global Politics. Students also take context-building courses such as Global Affairs, as well as specialized courses in Complexity Science and Systems Thinking. Specific to MUWCI is also the Project Based Diploma, where a group of students spend their second year conceiving and executing an impact-driven project.
Outside the Classroom
MUWCI offers an immense variety of co-curricular activities through its Creativity, Activity, Service program, referred to as "Triveni" program, which facilitates project-based learning in four areas: Education, Peace and Justice, Sustainability, Communication and Culture, and Outdoor Education. Students are active in decision-making processes that affect campus life, such as envisioning and executing resource management initiatives. Community Service includes working with entrepreneurship programs or organic farming collectives. Students benefit from the cultural diversity of the surrounding valley and have immersive experiences in other parts of the country. MUWCI also runs short programs about topics such as sustainability and globalization.
Campus and Facilities
Students live together in five residential clusters known as "wadas". The campus offers many informal locations for gathering and hiking, and several areas are well known among students for their gorgeous vistas of the valley during sunset. Academic facilities include a science lab, a library, an art space overlooking the valley, specialized facilities for theatre and music practice and a large sporting ground.
Students can apply through their UWC national committee or the UWC Global Selection Programme.
