JWL is committed to offering tertiary education in communities at the margins of societies – those societies that through poverty, location, lack of opportunity, conflict or forced displacement exist among the rural or urban poor, indigenous or isolated displaced people. Together JWL and its Community Learning Centers form a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural and multi-religious global community of learners enabling all to contribute their knowledge and voices to foster hope to create a more peaceful and humane world.
Global English Language Program offered by Jesuit Worldwide Learning (JWL) strives to deliver consistent, high quality English courses to students anywhere in the world.
JWL started out by offering short-term classroom based Community Service Learning Courses (CSLC) of 3-6 months’ length to train students in a whole range of skills. All courses are developed in collaboration with university faculties to reflect tertiary level quality. JWL will work with partnering universities to develop professional and vocational curriculum that will award certificates based on the UNESCO standard of Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET). JWL started in 2017 to develop Certified Professional Programs lasting one year and the new courses will be taught online with classroom components.
From the inception of its Learning Program in 2010, JWL has offered an academic Diploma Course in Liberal Arts. The Diploma of 45 semester credits is awarded by Regis University in Denver, Colorado USA, which is regionally accredited by The Higher Learning Commission in the United States. The JWL curriculum is global in its focus and scope. All credits earned are Regis University credits; they are recorded on an official transcript from the university, and official transcripts are available to all JWL students.
