5. The UWC Pakistan Selections Committee will select the most promising of the interviewed applicants, and notify those selected regarding their college placements and scholarship offers.

Please note: Another option for applying to UWC is the UWC Global Selection Programme which is available for students who:

·  wish to have entry results 9-12 months before the beginning of the school year

·  are looking to attend a specific UWC school or college

More information about application routes can be found at "Apply to study the IBDP at UWC" on UWC International's main website:


Whichever route a candidate chooses, the application will be assessed against UWC’s core selection criteria. Please note that a candidate may only submit one application per year to study the IB Diploma Programme at UWC. You may not apply through two different UWC national committees or through a UWC national committee and the UWC Global Selection Programme concurrently.
