Our welfare team is responsible for planning a weekend each summer for our students and families to meet each other and have fun whilst getting to know UWC.

Each year, we enjoy a weekend filled with games and outdoor adventures with both our second- and first-years. It is also an opportunity for students or parents to ask us any questions before commencing with their studies.

This year's orientation will take place at Thornbridge Outdoors, an outdoor activity centre in Peak District, on 12-14th July!

More information will be communicated soon via email to all of our students and their parents. If you have any questions, please reach our welfare team at
