Global Selection Program

Global Selection Program

While most students attending UWC-USA and other UWCs apply through their National Committees, another option for applying to UWC is the UWC Global Selection Program. This program is available for students who

  • do not need a scholarship to attend UWC
  • wish to have entry results 9-12 months before the beginning of the school year
  • are looking to attend a specific UWC school or college
  • have a strong affinity and sympathy for the UWC mission
  • are looking for a challenging personal and academic two-year program

Applicants to the Global Selection program will be assessed against UWC’s core selection criteria. Please note that a candidate may only submit one application per year to study the IB Diploma Programme at UWC. You may not apply through two different UWC national committees or through a UWC national committee and the UWC Global Selection Programme concurrently.

The Global Selection Program is administered by the UWC International Office in London. More information about how to apply is available here.

“UWC is an opportunity to not only learn and grow, but it is also a place for self-reflection. As I reflect every day on what I have learned or achieved in this place, I realize I have become more sensible and empathetic. Empathy is an essential part of being connected with human beings and has taught me to be open and accepting to other cultures, values, and beliefs.”
