There are two main ways that you can apply to study at LPCUWC:

UWC National Committees (including scholarships)

Most students are selected through one of UWC's national committees. Representing UWC in over 155 countries and territories, UWC national committees form a global network which seeks and selects students with great potential from around the world, often in the most unlikely places. 

If you require a grant or scholarship, you should apply using this application process. 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.

The application process is guided by the individual national committee. For more information on how to apply, find yours on our UWC national committees page.
