United World College Maastricht (UWC Maastricht) opened in September 2009 as the thirteenth member of the United World Colleges family. Its foundation is the result of the enthusiasm and commitment of UWC National Committees in the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg and Germany. Many of these Committee members are former UWC students from various countries. Together with many other supporters they are responsible for this exciting new project in the heart of Europe.
UWC Maastricht comprises the International Department of Joppenhof Primary School and the International School of Maastricht (ISM), which provide for the international community in the city of Maastricht and cater for more than 40 nationalities. In the coming years, this will lead to a senior IB Diploma class of 100 students. Some 200 students selected from around the world by UWC National Committees will join this class. The number will increase year by year so that in 2014 the college will have 950 students between the ages of 2 and 18. National Committee entrants will be provided with scholarships that match their needs.
