United World College Applications

Thanks to Lenard for sharing this.

United World College Applications - Deadline is 15th February 2011.

UWC Malaysia - Applications

This page concerns applications to the UWC movement. All Malaysian applicants to UWC normally apply through UWC Malaysia's National Committee which selects applicants to represent Malaysia at the UWCs.

Scholarships offered yearly to Malaysia for the IB Diploma program in UWCs worldwide vary from full to partial scholarships between 50% and 75%. Although the number of scholarships differs from year to year, they are always limited and few. Where partial scholarships are offered, parents are expected to make up the difference on the amount.

Students are selected based on competitive selection via written applications and personal interviews. Other elements may include a piece of written work, an examination, group discussions, teamwork exercises, an excursion or camp and community service projects. UWC Graduates are involved throughout most selection processes.

The UWC of the Adriatic in Italy offers special scholarship programs for exceptional Physics or Music students. However, all applicants undergo the same initial selection process. UWC Malaysia National Committee currently does not send students to the agriculturally-based Simon Bolivar UWC.

The application form for the 2011 application cycle is now available.
