Please Read the Following Instructions Carefully prior to starting the application process.


The 2019 UWC Application Process will commence on 16 January 2020. To submit an application, see section C below. 


Students should note that the tuition offers cover school fees, room and board. They DO NOT cover airfare, pocket money, medical insurance, visa fees, purchase of academic materials, travel and accommodation during short holidays. Scholarships are offered on a needs-based mechanism. We therefore depend on parental contributions as an important component in ensuring that the students are comfortable throughout their two years.

For 2020, Tanzania has been allocated 15+ full and partial scholarship offers; 7 from international and 13 from our very own UWC East Africa in Tanzania.
