What if I'm Not Eligible?

While national application in Indonesia is managed by us, the following routes are also available:

  • If you are an Indonesian dual-national, you can contact the other National Committee to explore the application process and requirements.
  • For all applicants, you can also explore the Global Selections Program (GSP) coordinated directly by UWC International and the UWC schools. However, scholarships are NOT available and places are limited. You can find more information about the GSP here.
