Students who are interested to study in any of the 17 schools and colleges of the United World Colleges (UWC) across the globe will have the opportunity to ask questions straight to a panel of accomplished UWC alumni and personalities, including former Chinese University of Hong Kong Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Joseph Sung, SBS, JP, and School Supervisor of Aristle Group International Ms Vivian Wu during the UWC Info Day on 11 November.
Co-hosted by the Li Po Chun United World College of Hong Kong (LPCUWC) and UWC Hong Kong, the UWC Info Day provides a comprehensive programme for students and parents alike. Participants will gain insight into the unique experiential education model of UWC and how it transforms students to be change-makers. Further information regarding the UWC Scholarship Scheme, the unique residential set-up, where students from different countries live together, and the holistic approach to learning will also be elaborated throughout the day.
One of the highlights of the UWC Info Day is a panel interaction between UWC alumni and prospective students and their parents. Professor Sung will be joining the panel to share his insights as a parent of LPCUWC alumna and current Board Member of UWC Hong Kong and LPCUWC. Other notable speakers include Ms Wu, School Supervisor of Aristle Group International and expert on International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme and Gifted Education. Speakers on the panel, together with more than 30 UWC alumni and LPCUWC students, will also share their personal UWC stories to shed more light on how their UWC experience has impacted them both as an individual and a member of the larger community.
The day begins with an introduction to the UWC unique education model by LPCUWC Principal Arnett Edwards then segues into lively activities, including performances and sign-up booths at the Courtyard by LPCUWC students showcasing their Quan Cai co-curricular activities. Student residences will be opened to guests as part of the campus tour for them to get a feel of the sharing arrangement in the bedroom and common spaces, like the living and activity rooms.

Therefore, the UWC Scholarship Scheme was founded to provide scholarships and fee remission to selected students according to their financial need on a means-tested basis.
