SWBA sees lasting education as a passionate journey towards a purpose-driven life with safer communities and more inclusive societies. We believe in education where success is defined beyond grades and exams, and the unknown and failure are embraced as an integral part of the learning experience. We imagine learning spaces that generate love, justice & equality – the core building blocks of a peaceful and sustainable world.
THERE ARE NO ONLINE COURSES IN THE PROGRAM – All courses are completed in the classroom with field study supplements.
ALSO: SWBA facilitates enjoyable employment (through a local business) for students looking for work to help pay for SWBA fees. bursaries are also available for students who qualify.
Education is changing. The world for which we are preparing students today is fundamentally different from the one many of us experienced growing up. Today’s societies are marked by new global economic, cultural, technological and environmental trends that are part of a rapid and uneven wave of globalization. The Students Without Borders Academy addresses these changes and prepares students for the challenges of change ahead.
YOU NEVER CHANGE THINGS BY FIGHTING THE EXISTING REALITY. TO CHANGE SOMETHING, BUILD A NEW MODEL THAT MAKES THE EXISTING MODEL OBSOLETE.
