If you are not in Tanzania and a prior visit is not possible, we can usually complete the application process by email or mail. You will receive from us a formal admission letter, an invoice specifying amounts due with methods and dates for payment, a health form for you to complete showing basic medical information on your child, and handbooks describing the school day, our curriculum, and aspects of boarding (if appropriate).
Between receiving formal admission and arriving, either the student themselves or his/her parents are very welcome to contact us with any questions or concerns they may have. We will look forward to meeting you on your arrival and making you feel comfortable.

How to Apply
Diploma (scholarships)

All Diploma programme applicants (for D1,D2) should apply through one of the two UWC routes for application:

Scholarship Option
Students interested in the IBDP are selected through one of UWC's national committees. Over 65% of students selected through the UWC national committee system are also offered financial assistance. Scholarships are granted on the basis of each individual's need and means.

Tanzanian students should apply through the UWC Tanzania National Committee.
Students from other countries should apply through their home country National Committee.

How to Apply
Diploma (fee-payers)

Fee-Paying Option
The UWC Global Selection Programme (GSP) is designed for candidates who wish to apply 9-12 months before the beginning of the school year. They must also be able to pay the full fee for the school once they have successfully applied. Please click here to continue.

GSP is coordinated by UWC International in close cooperation with UWC schools, colleges, and the UWC national committees. Selections are carried out by experienced UWC selection volunteers.

UWC GSP is an application route for a limited number of places at some UWCs. Currently, you can apply to UWC East Africa or 15 of the other 17 UWC schools and colleges via this route.
