Opportunities for students from Trinidad & Tobago
United World College (UWC) schools, colleges and programmes deliver a challenging and transformative education experience to a diverse cross section of students, inspiring them to create a more peaceful and sustainable future.
UWC has 17 schools and colleges across 5 continents all with distinctive characters but sharing the same mission, ethos and values.
Although strong academic achievement is valued highly at UWC, academic achievements are put into perspective with a demanding mix of community engagement, international affairs, physical activities and creative pursuits.
Our student intake is deliberately diverse and each of the schools and colleges draws together students from many different nations and backgrounds. Our bursaries, scholarships and fee structures aim to ensure a broad socio-economic mix within the student body that adds value to the student experience and the organisation.
UWC depends on the dedication and expertise of a network of volunteers to promote UWC and select future students. These are called National Committees and they operate in more than 150 countries worldwide. If a National Committee exists in your country you must apply through that committee.
Each year a National Committee will receive from the UWC schools and colleges a specific number of places (which may include a scholarship, bursary/partial scholarship or fee-paying place) for which they select students to study the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma. This 2 year international academic programme provides a great alternative to sixth form and allows students the opportunity to learn in an international, multicultural environment.
As the local representative of UWC International, UWC Trinidad and Tobago is responsible for the administration and annual selection of students for admission to the schools and colleges.
Please make sure you find out as much as possible about UWC before going ahead with your application. It is important that you understand the aims of the organisation and the commitment involved in the programmes that are offered. For more information please go to www.uwc.org
