Application Deadlines

When should applications to UWC take place?

Whether you are applying via our UWC national committees or the UWC Global Selection Programme (GSP), it is important to make sure you are aware of the relevant application dates relevant to you.

Please remember 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.

Currently, the only application route available for entry 2021-2023 is via the UWC Global Selection Programme. Please have a look below for estimated deadlines for entry 2022-2024.
