Applying through the UWC national committee system

Applying through the UWC national committee system

There are national committees in over 155 countries, so the majority of students can apply to study at a UWC school or college through this system.

What is a national committee?
National committees are volunteer-run panels which:

  • Promote UWC
  • Select and prepare students for their UWC experience
  • Often run short programmes.

Members include UWC alumni, education professionals and community leaders. 
Some countries have a selection contact rather than a national committee. They are responsible for selecting students from a particular country.  

How do I apply through my national committee? 
Each national committee tailors the application process and deadlines to their local education system and culture to ensure it is relevant and appropriate.  

Find your national committee by selecting your country from our list

If you have further questions, please contact your national committee. If you don’t have a national committee, please contact the International Office.

The International Office can assist but does not process applications.
