UWCs enable young people of all social and racial identities and backgrounds to develop international understanding through a program that combines academic life with activities designed to encourage social responsibility and adventure.
At UWC, 16-18 year olds from all over the world, from all social, economic and cultural backgrounds, with partial or full scholarships, live and study together for the last two years of high school. Students are taught in English and receive the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IB) which is recognized worldwide as an admission qualification to universities all over the world. Today 18 colleges operate on 4 continents offering each year this unique educational experience to over 6,000 students from all countries of the world.

Applications that do not fulfil them will be automatically rejected and will not be considered by the Selection Board.
