Global Awareness and Balkan Studies are two of the many ways in which learning at UWC Mostar goes far beyond the normal bounds of the IB.

Co-curricular program

Co-curricular calendar

Co-curricular activities are one of many ways in which we ensure that learning is not restricted to the classroom. The co-curricular program supports aesthetic development, character building, spiritual and physical growth, moral values, and creativity. This calendar gives you a quick sense of the activities over the course of the year.

CAS: Creativity

Creativity encompasses a whole range of activities, from choir to astronomy. Creativity activities are important to explore thinking, or to engage students intellectually in various discussion groups or clubs, such as Model United Nations, where students can explore global leadership roles.

CAS: Action

Sports and athletics play an integral role in our co-curricular program here at UWCiM. Not only they help us stay healthy, they also help us meet new people and have fun after long days of classes. Our Activity CASes are as diverse as our student body, ranging from rugby matches on Sunday mornings to relaxed yoga classes in the afternoon.

CAS: Social Service

Service CASes are activities with the community in which students get to contribute to their surrounding. Service CASes require students to devote themselves extensively and require real commitment. Service CASes are a great opportunity to learn about different local communities, explore the context of our school, and develop new skills.

College Service

With emphasis on the importance of the community, students are involved in college services to understand that they also have responsibilities towards the school. They are usually small but essential tasks, and the aim of all of them is the same: to keep our school running and to provide a service to our own community.

Clubs

Clubs are activities that cannot happen regularly, unlike CASes. They range from learning Arabic to Street Dance and are mostly up to the student body to exist. Students, unless agreed otherwise, have less responsibilities and commitment to clubs than to any other co-curricular activities. Everybody at the UWC in Mostar can start a club of some kind.

Project week

Each October, students organize and participate in weeklong projects — Project Weeks — around BiH and the region to extend UWC learning into the real world.

Facilities

Unlike most other UWCs, UWC Mostar is not closed off on a isolated campus: the school is located in the city centre and shares its premises with the Mostar Gimnazija, and residences spread around the city.

Life after UWC

The two years at UWC Mostar are just the training of a life as a “UWC’er” — the experiences gained here last a lifetime.
