Umoja: Short Course in Tanzania

Coming together to understand conflict

19 June-28 June 2018

The first proposed UWC Short Course in Tanzania will be an opportunity for participants to understand important issues in a dynamic environment. Using the diverse history of the region as a backdrop to explore the topic of conflict, the course will focus on non-experiential learning, community engagement, local action and global understanding.

By letting the participants guide the experience, we will ensure a productive experience for all those involved. Without any other UWC colleges or short courses in East Africa, the course will provide a unique perspective and promote UWC values. The course will enable participants to continue to engage critically long after the course has ended.

The Short course will be held at the International School Moshi (ISM), which is currently a candidate United World Colleges candidate school.

This means that it is currently going through a rigorous process in order to become the second UWC school on the African continent. UWC schools, colleges and programmes deliver a challenging and transformative educational experience to a diverse cross section of students, inspiring them to create a more peaceful and sustainable future.
