Step 1: Gathering the Necessary Information
- scanned copies of each applicant’s last two school reports (translated into English);
- a recent passport photo;
- a scanned copy of each applicant’s birth certificate (translated into English), or passport;
- medical information ready to input into our online application;
- recent Standardised Test Scores (if available);
- a confidential recommendation submitted through OpenApply, our online application platform; and
- any additional documents including learning support reports and testing results, therapy reports, psychological or psycho-educational testing results and reports, behaviour modification plans, etc.
For details of Required Admissions Documents, please refer to OpenApply.
Please review the Grade Placement Comparison Chart for your class placement reference.
Step 2: Applying Online
For Nursery to Grade 10 applicants, please follow the application process outlined on our OpenApply online application platform.
Diploma Programme students applying for Grade 11 as direct entry applicants (full fee-paying), must apply via the UWC Global Selection Programme.
For scholarships to the Diploma Programme, please contact your UWC National Committee.
Step 3: Review and Assessment
Prospective students going into Primary School may participate in an assessment with a member of the admissions committee and/or a classroom visit. This decision is based on the documentation and previous school records provided during the application process. An on-campus assessment is always preferable if possible.
Please note that the Admissions Office must receive a completed application form, including the required documents and application fee before an assessment or classroom visit can begin.
Step 4: Enrollment
Once a place in the school has been offered, the family will need to confirm their place within two weeks, at which time certain fees are required. This is important for visa acquisitions, and the Admissions Team will walk each family through this.
