Direct Entry - The UWC Global Selection Programme

The UWC Global Selection Programme is an application route for the IBDP for a limited number of places at some UWCs. Currently, you can apply to 16 of the 18 UWC international schools via this route.

The Global Selection Programme is designed for candidates who wish to apply 9-12 months before the beginning of the school year. They must also be able to pay the full fee for the UWC international school once they have successfully applied. (if you need a scholarship to attend UWC, please have a look at the UWC national committee entry-route, as described here)

The Global Selection Programme is coordinated by UWC International in close cooperation with UWC schools, colleges and the UWC national committees. Selections are carried out by experienced UWC selection volunteers. 

Further details on the Global Selection Programme may be found here.

Places at GSP selection days are strictly limited in number and awarded on an ongoing basis - the sooner you complete and submit your application, the sooner you’ll know whether you’ve been invited (shortlisted candidates will be invited within two weeks of application).

Places at schools offered to successful students: Within two weeks of attending a Global Selection Day.
