Li Po Chun United World College of Hong Kong (LPCUWC) is one of 18 colleges that share the value and philosophy of the UWC movement and the mission of UWC.

Sharing a firm commitment to diversity, LPCUWC is a boarding school that goes beyond being "international." It is a vibrant community interwoven by more than 250 students from over 90 different nationalities, cultures, and various socio-economic backgrounds supported by scholarships. Living on a fully residential campus, students get to learn from and with friends of different backgrounds in their shared living experiences.

Students are exposed to a strong presence of many traditions and cultures. Everyone gets a chance to immerse themselves in the cultures of other regions of the world and showcase their own at cultural evenings. Students from abroad also have the opportunity to explore Chinese culture in depth, with Mandarin as a subject and Dragon and Lion Dance as Quan Cai (whole person development) activities. Students are given the chance to develop a deeper understanding of China and Asia through China Week and Project Week service trips to Mainland China, East, and Southeast Asia.

Like many other UWCs with scenic campuses, LPCUWC is a tight-knit community in a quiet location in Ma On Shan close to nature. However, we are also just a stone’s throw away from the heart of Hong Kong, a dynamic coastal cosmopolitan at the crossroads of cultural, political and historical contexts. With an eclectic selection of Quan-Cai activities that bridges citizenship on and off campus, service in the school and local community forms an integral part of education at LPCUWC. Beyond Ma On Shan, there is also a plethora of natural terrains and urban neighborhoods for students to explore. At LPCUWC, the city becomes our campus.
