1. Prerequisites and Deadlines

An UWC education is aimed at particularly motivated young people with broad interests and the firm desire to go to school for two years at a UWC. Admission to the application process is granted to all students of the required age, who are currently attending a secondary school, which is usually domiciled in Switzerland and leads to the university entrance qualification. The Swiss nationality is not absolutely necessary, but familiarity with the Swiss way of life (i.e. long-term residence in Switzerland) is a prerequisite.


The Board of the UWC Swiss Association will accept applications for the two school years beginning end of August 2023 and ending June 2025 from students who are at least 16 years old but not yet 18 years old on June 30th, 2023.


The application deadline is 30 November 2022 (date of postmark).


International candidates apply through the Global Selection Programme and the Selection Days taking place on most continents.
