UWCSEA welcomes applications from all qualified candidates.

UWCSEA is an equal opportunity employer, and welcomes applications from those who wish to join a community which is inclusive, and which celebrates diversity.

Venue and Company description

Here in Singapore, UWCSEA has a unique history: as we build on the impact of our work of over close to 50 years, and as our alumni go out into the world in increasing numbers, we have much to celebrate.

We are a united, welcoming community that embraces students and their families from almost 100 different nations. The second member of the UWC movement, the College was opened by Lee Kuan Yew as Singapore International School in 1971. SIS became the United World College of South East Asia in 1975 and gradually expanded to become the K–12 international school of over 5,500 students across two campuses that it is today.

Our community, while large, celebrates and builds on the success of individuals, with an aim to create a wider impact through our mission. UWCSEA  embodies everything the UWC movement stands for: concern and compassion for others, the willingness to accept responsibility, and tenacity in pursuit of the truth. What also distinguishes our students is how much they give service to others: their compassion and commitment are writ large in the many hundreds of hours of impactful service the College bears witness to every year, across a hugely diverse range of activities, and which we celebrate as much as our academic achievements.

What inspires us?
Our mission. As both the starting point and the end goal of a UWCSEA education, our mission guides every decision we make as we strive to educate individuals to embrace challenge and take responsibility for shaping a better world.

The intentional diversity in our community created by our student admissions and staff recruitment policies adds so much to the learning environment and outcomes for our students: diversity and inclusion increases the richness of ideas, it creates an internationalist mindset and, most importantly, it builds deep understanding and respect for others. Our students and staff are encouraged to investigate and value their own different histories and talents, as well as those of other people and cultures.
