UWC Dilijan - Armenia
UWC Dilijan is located in the valley of the 16t h century town of
Dilijan. Once, Dilijan was one of the main stopovers on the ancient Silk
Route that passed through Armenia. Today, it lies on the road
connecting two modern large cities, Yerevan and Tbilisi, in a country
that is at the heart of a diverse, culturally rich and complex region.
Student profile: 219 students aged 16-18
We have modern, well equipped residential facilities and students will live in one of four boarding houses, known as Toons (Toon is the Armenian word for home). Typically, students will share rooms of two or four. Bathrooms are shared. We aim to have a wide variety of national, cultural and linguistic groupings within each room. Each Toon has male and female students on separate floors. Toon Parents (as we call houseparents) will be drawn from the academic staff of the college and will be resident within the accommodation buildings. There are limited kitchen facilities in the student accommodation (kettle and microwave) for snacks and the occasional cooking of a meal with friends. All meals are served in the dining hall and there are three main meals each day. Snacks are served twice a day. There is also a student run café which acts as a relaxing place to have a tea with friends or do some work with a coffee.

UWC Dilijan represents an exciting extension of the UWC movement into the Caucasus region at the junction of Asia and Europe. Opened in 2014, UWC Dilijan has been developed from generous funding from the RVVZ foundation, created by Armenian entrepreneur Ruben Vardanyan and his wife Veronika Zonabend. The college campus is set within 88 hectares of land, part of it in a beautiful national park. The educational programme engages not only with the expansive natural setting, but also with the local community. Today it is home to 210 students from 82 countries. As an international school in a region with a rich yet fragmented history, it is one of UWC Dilijan’s main goals to be a beacon in the region that will help establish strong ties between students from Asia and Europe, the post-Soviet and the Western worlds, and the Muslim and the Christian worlds, while being open to students from any and every faith, nation or part of the globe.
UWC Dilijan has a strong focus on humanitarian and development issues with strong links to the humanitarian and development projects led by the RVVZ and IDeA foundations (partner organizations of UWC Dilijan) in Armenia. Due to its geopolitical location UWC Dilijan is also a unique opportunity for those interested in gaining experience in conflict resolution and peace initiatives. On the other hand, UWC Dilijan’s geographical location, makes it a haven for students who enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, skiing, mountain-biking, etc.
We are looking for students who are open-minded and who want to challenge themselves in all aspects of college life. They must be idealistic and believe that they can change things through their actions and efforts. In particular, we are looking for students who want to commit to working with our local community, through activities or projects, leading significant and impactful change.
It is important that our prospective students are also willing to:
be passionate about their beliefs and open-minded about the beliefs of others
take action to turn ideas into reality
balance idealism with pragmatism
succeed in an intense academic environment, through their skills and motivation
be curious about the world and about people who come from a range of cultures, religions, and backgrounds
be compassionate, generous and engaged with their community through service and activities
