Abstract

Perez (2016 p.7) describes the UWC as ‘an incredibly strong unit of analysis to study mission, organization, and outcomes.’ In fact, in practice, the UWCs offer two sets of possible experiences. Alongside the usual two-year ‘Long Courses’, involving the delivery of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, the UWCs each year offer a large number of two-week long ‘Short Courses’. We report in our session on the activities and events of one ‘Short Course’, delivered to 50 young people in Northern Europe in 2019 (one of 25 offered that year).
