We would like to congratulate each of our 125 graduates of Class of 2023. Their two years represented so much beyond the IB Diploma. They have become young leaders who champion peace, sustainability and positive change in their respective communities and the world despite the challenging circumstances in the last two years.
This year 118 students graduated from Li Po Chun United World College of Hong Kong (LPCUWC) obtaining an International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma. Based on the provisional results of IB Diploma 2023, we are pleased to announce that 25.2% of our graduates have received 40 or more Diploma points in the IB Diploma exams, higher than the world average of 14.7% (in May 2022). Out of a maximum of 45 Diploma points, 3 graduate(s) obtained 44 with 6 43s.
“Huge congratulations to the graduates of 2023 for these outstanding results. The graduates and teachers have had to navigate a range of challenges due to Covid during the last two years. These results not only represent your success in terms of the IB Diploma but also in terms of your commitment to UWC education. Many of you will be moving to outstanding universities worldwide or others of you will be taking gap years. For this I wish you all the best”. - Principal Arnett Edwards said.
LPCUWC, established in 1992, is home to a diverse community of over 250 students from over 90 countries. It is one of 18 UWC schools and colleges across the globe on a mission to make education “a force to unite people, nations and cultures for peace and a sustainable future.” Its unique approach to teaching-learning is carried out on the three pillars of UWC education: Academics, Education Outside the Classroom, and Residential Life. Over 40% of students from Hong Kong and overseas in LPCUWC are funded by need-based scholarships. College Year 2022/23 marked the celebrations of the 30th Anniversary of the College and the 50th Anniversary of UWC Hong Kong Committee. Hong Kong has had a long history with the UWC, sending the first batch of Hong Kong students to overseas UWC Schools and Colleges back in 1972. In 1992, LPCUWC started operations in Hong Kong.
