UWC Red Cross Nordic College has three pillars: Nordic, Humanitarian and Environmental. All Nordic countries contribute to the funding of the College, enabling the College to undertake a selection entirely based on merit and potential, creating a learning environment where diversity is truly experienced as a value for all.
Inside the Classroom
UWC Red Cross Nordic offers the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP). Alongside standard courses, students can take Danish, Norwegian, Swedish, Global Politics and Theater Arts. Additionally, all students take a Red Cross Diploma, and first year students attend weekly sessions in the Life Skills program, exploring and developing their familiarity with topics relating to the Nordic, Humanitarian and Environmental pillars of the College.
Outside the Classroom
The college places a strong emphasis on community service with a wide range of cultural and outdoor activities (e.g. Ski Week, Cultural Days, crafts and other activities at Haugland Rehabilitation Centre). The College has its own centre for visitors, which receive camp school children in spring and autumn. This is a central part of the College Service program. The beautiful fjord landscape provides an excellent setting for activities in the water and on the mountains.
Campus and Facilities
The College has 5 student residences, each housing 40 students. The rooms are furnished in traditional Norwegian style and each has its own bathroom facilities. There is good access to the swimming pool at the Haugland Centre as well as a weight training room and a gym.
Students can apply through their UWC national committee or through the UWC Global Selection Programme.
