Project week "Sutjeska" took our teacher Emina and students María, Yoann, Fabijan, Tereza, Nisan, Aure and Aida to the amazing Sutjeska National Park.Sutjeska National Park is a national park established in 1962 and it is Bosnia and Herzegovina's oldest national park. It is unique for its unbelievable beauty, presence of wildlife and the primeval forest Perućica, one of the last two remaining primeval forests in Europe. It is also famous for being the location of the Battle of Sutjeska in 1943 during World War II. Within their project, our team visited National Park Sutjeska and did two one-day hikes, one to Trnovačko lake under the tallest mountain in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Maglić. The second hike was to two lakes of Zelengora, and a viewpoint on the opposite side of the Sutjeska River canyon. They visited the monument of Sutjeska battle of 1943 and learned about the historical significance of the area, spoke about sustainability and the difficulty of having sustainable tourism that would support all three pillars:environmental, social and economic. Students were also able to push their own boundaries, improve their hiking skills, learned a lot about this part of the country in its specific context.María, Yoann, Fabijan, Tereza, Nisan, Aure, and the student leader Aida were highly supportive of each other and made teacher Emina incredibly proud of their team spirit and resilience 💙 ...

They say that Herzegovina is heaven for cyclists - and after last week, UWC Mostar team could see why - first hand! Project week entitled simply "Biking", did not only provide our team with an opportunity to bike more than 250km, but they also got a chance to see many beautiful sights along the way - from the beautiful Rama lake to astonishing Kravice waterfalls, all the way to Stolac old town!As not everything in life always goes as planned, they all learned quite a lot about biking life: they now know how to deal with bike damages along the road, flat tires in the middle of nowhere and heavy wind and rain, so despite relaxing from IB, this project week created a life long bonding experience for our students Lazar, Aljoša, Matus, Marcelo, Elysio and Carlos.Special thank you to supervisor teacher Zoe, and our Adis who is always there when help is needed! ...

What is UWC?

UWC makes education a force to unite people, nations and cultures for peace and a sustainable future.

Who we are

Entering the Mostar Gimnazija in 2006, our school building was still partly in ruin from a war that had ended only a decade before. Now, after more than twenty years of peace, UWC Mostar stands as a bright model for post-conflict education and reconciliation. Though national divisions in Bosnia and Herzegovina persist — we are still the only school in the country where Bosniak, Croat, and Serb youth live and go to school together — the college has affirmatively grounded itself in our community. And with nearly 200 students from 60 countries, staff from 10 countries, and with 608 alumni all around the world, the global family of UWC Mostar grows year by year.

Learning in Mostar

We learn in Mostar through late night talks in rooms, on walks from residence to school, sharing coffee with refugees in service activities, collecting oral histories for Balkan Studies projects, in buses traveling around the region for project weeks and, of course, through inspiring classes that aim to reimagine our relationships with facts and ideas that shape these worlds outside the classroom. While the International Baccalaureate forms the foundation for academics, any UWC Mostar student will tell you that the intellectual and emotional growth you undergo here cannot be contained by the IB. We are committed to the fact that learning takes place in the everyday.

Living in Mostar

At UWC Mostar, the city is our campus, and our campus is the city. Unique amongst UWCs, our students and staff live all around the city of Mostar. We share our main school building with the Mostar Gimnazija, one of the best secondary schools in the country. Our cultural performances are held in a city youth center. Teachers and students meet in local coffee shops to discuss academics and plan the community festivals we host for the community. Weekends at the Croatian seaside or music at the Sarajevo Jazz Festival are a short bus ride away. Integration and engagement are essential practices, core to our daily existence.
