2020 UWC Opportunities

“The striking thing about United World Colleges (UWC) is that they embrace the entire world across all divides of race, history, culture, wealth, religion, economic status and political belief: they are unique, and they are conscious of their responsibilities.”
N. Mandela, Honorary President 

The UWC is an education movement comprising international schools and colleges teaching the International Baccalaureate Diploma program. Students are selected from around the globe based on their merit and potential. Making education a force to unite people, nations, and cultures, all UWC schools share the same mission, ethos, and values.  

School locations: Armenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Canada, China, Costa Rica, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Norway, Singapore, Swaziland, Tanzania, Thailand, USA, Venezuela, and Wales. For further information, please click here.

Scholarship awards (full and partial) are available for Uganda nationals and refugees who completed S4 or equivalent examinations in November/December 2019 (or earlier) for entry in August 2020/January 2021. Non-funded opportunities for study at a UWC are also available. Girl students are strongly encouraged to apply. Please note that applicants should be 16-17 years old by August 2020.
