Selection criteria

Entry is competitive, with selection based on academic ability, personal qualities and a wish to further the international aims of the UWC Movement.
In order to be able to compete for the scholarship, students must fulfill ALL of the following criteria:

  • Be a resident of Egypt
  • Be currently in First or Second Secondary, or equivalent
  • Be between 16 and 18 years as of August 31st, in the year of application. 
  • Must have accomplished Third Preparatory (or equivalent) successfully.

Note: English language is not a pre-requisite, and interviews can be conducted in Arabic. However, we strongly encourage candidates to work on their English language skills if they are thinking of applying. Basic English skills are very helpful in order to benefit fully from a UWC experience.

Note: Non-Egyptian Nationals who reside in Egypt should apply through the UWC National Committee in their home country. Find contact details.
