UWC Global Selection Programme (GSP)

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 15 of the 17 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. 

Don't Miss Out: upcoming GSP selection days in London (26/27 January 2019), Toronto (2/3 February 2019) and Bangkok (9/10 February 2019)

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 offered to successful students: February 2019.

Commitment to diversity: UWC International is committed to the diversity in nationalities and backgrounds of all its students at UWC schools and colleges. In order to avoid overrepresentation of individual nationalities or backgrounds, UWC International reserves the right to close the UWC Global Selection Programme to applicants from a particular country or territory at any time. Should this occur, applicants in question will remain able to apply to UWC via the UWC national committee in the relevant country or territory.
