UWC South East Asia (Dover and East campuses)

  • Curriculum: UWC curriculum, IGCSEs, IBDP
  • Boarding options: Full-time, Grades 8 to 12
  • Boarding facilities: Shared and single rooms, lounges, kitchens, private gardens, 24-hour health clinic, study rooms, common rooms
  • Annual boarding fees: SGP 36,700
  • Location: Queenstown (Dover) and Tampines (East)

UWCSEA has campuses in both the east and west of Singapore, which are just one hour apart. While both offer the same UWC-style of education, they are distinctly different. Dover is the larger and older of the two campuses, while East has more modern facilities spread across a considerably smaller campus of 5.5 hectares. The school offers a concept-based curriculum that has been developed from the UWC Mission and, in high school, students study for IGCSEs and the IBDP.

There are boarding facilities at Dover and East campuses for students in Grades 8 to 12, both within walking distance of the schools' facilities. There are more than 5,000 day students and 350 boarders from 76 countries shared across the two campuses. Both campuses have a very diverse student body, with the highest numbers of children coming from India, the UK, the US and Australia.
