Application Process

Each UWC school has its own distinct character and identity, influenced by its host country, the specific setting, cultural context and its community. What makes each one of them a UWC is a deliberately diverse student body, with students coming from all over the world, bringing with them very different backgrounds to learn and live together – and their joined mission to make education a force for peace and sustainability.

We offer a unique and challenging learning experience. To determine whether our school is the right option for you, the GSP application process seeks to learn as much as possible about you and gives you the opportunity to learn more about us along the way. All applicants are assessed according to the UWC Selection Criteria.

The GSP selection process consists of the following stages:

  • Stage 1: GSP Application Form
    The first stage of your application requires you to complete a common GSP Application Form hosted on the online UWC Applications portal. You can submit only one UWC application per year. Your application journey begins when you set up a username and password that you will use to access your application as you move through the process. START YOUR APPLICATION
  • Stage 2: Initial Interview
    If your GSP Application Form is shortlisted, you will be invited to an online interview with our admissions office. Before this interview, you will be required to submit additional documentation such as reference letters, transcripts or others. Your parents may be invited for an interview at this stage.
  • Stage 3: GSP Assessment Session
    If you advance after the initial interview, you will be required to participate in a series of online activities including: group activities, a project presentation and an emotional wellbeing questionnaire.
  • Stage 4: Additional interviews
    If you advance after stage 3, we may invite you and your parents to meet with some of our faculty members.

After the final stage, our admissions coordinator will make an offer to accepted candidates. You will be notified of the decision according to your selected application timeline: no later than March or April.
