Opening of the UWC Robert Bosch College

The first United World College (UWC) in Germany opened its doors: On September 23rd, the Robert Bosch Stiftung and the German UWC Foundation officially welcomed students to the UWC Robert Bosch College in Freiburg.

School started exactly three years after the groundbreaking ceremony, which was held in 2011 to celebrate Robert Bosch's 150th birthday. The UWC Robert Bosch College is the first school for talented upperclass high school students from around the world. A total of 200 students of various nationalities will live, learn, and earn an internationally accredited diploma here together. All of the students are selected by the independent UWC national committees exclusively on the basis of their aptitude and ability. Scholarships ensure that the parents' income does not play any role in the selection process.

The UWC is the largest individual project in the history of the Robert Bosch Stiftung that it is making possible together with Robert Bosch GmbH.
