The UWC national committee system
UWC depends on the dedication and expertise of a network of volunteers to promote UWC and select future students, these are called national committees. A wide variety of individuals make up UWC national committees including UWC alumni, education professionals and community leaders. They promote UWC to prospective students, encourage and support applications, select students and prepare students for their UWC experience. Some national committees also run short programmes.
Some countries have a selection contact rather than a national committee; this is an individual responsible for selecting students from a particular country.
There are national committees and selection contacts in over 140 countries, so the majority of students can apply through this system. The UWC International Office does not process applications.
Find your national committee by selecting your country from the list
. If you have further questions, please contact your national committee. If you do not have a national committee, please contact the International Office.
Each UWC national committee tailors the application process and deadlines to the local education system and culture to ensure it is relevant and appropriate. More
