UWC Canada

"provided me with incredible tools for life"

Cécilia Barrette-Leduc - Alumnus   (Mar 12, 2018)

UWC Canada (Pearson College) is an amazing place for students who want to have a unique and very intense experience. It is not for everyone, but my personal experience was outstanding and provided me with incredible tools for life, especially when it comes to interpersonal relations in a multicultural and diverse context. I particularly enjoyed the fact that students were encouraged to take initiative, speak up and put together various projects. I hope that student involvement and initiative rem... View full review

"It was hands down the most incredible experience of my life."

Kate Rowan - Alumnus   (Feb 01, 2018)

I attended Mahindra United World College of India through the Canadian UWC National Committee. It was hands down the most incredible experience of my life. It pushed me to see the world, myself and my own capabilities far beyond what I new possible. What truly makes UWC unique is the community as everyone on campus has made a huge effort as well as sacrifice to be there and they care about making the world a better place one individual at a time. The part that stands out most to me about my e... View full review

Lorraine Pundyk - Parent   (Jan 31, 2018)

Because it is an IB progra... View full review

An all-encompassing education

Thea Ryan - Alumnus   (Jan 30, 2018)

I attended Pearson College UWC and the most striking aspect of my education was how holistic and all-encompassing it was. Not only was I challenged academically, I was in a new environment with other motivated youth from around the world. I discovered interests that are still my passions today, such as ceramics and advocacy. I would change the academic program. The IB, while it was once cutting-edge, now feels like an obstacle to the real potential of a school like UWC. I think the school could... View full review

"different than any other school in the world"

Jacqueline Tam - Alumnus   (Jan 24, 2018)

When I arrived at Pearson, I could feel just how different of a place it was than any other school in the world. First of all, being in a deliberately diverse community of 160 students representing around 80 countries alongside faculty and staff from all over the world inherently pushes you out of your comfort zone in a beautifully unifying way. We lived in houses of 40 with each room consisting of 4 students from different countries. This is one of the most key aspects of UWC– living with ... View full review
