Applying to UWCSEA
UWCSEA invites applications for the coming academic year, one year in advance and does not keep a rolling wait list. Applications generally open in September of the year prior to the commencement of the next academic year, but please contact Admissions if you are looking for earlier entry, or more information.
In most grades, the College adds an additional 22 places in August each year. All applicants who meet our entrance criteria are considered for one of these places, and for places made available by students leaving the College. If demand for places exceeds the number of students we can enrol, we determine how we allocate the available places based on allocation criteria which support our commitment to diversity.
UWCSEA follows the northern hemisphere academic year, with school running from mid-August to late June of the following year.
Commencing in the 2017/2018 academic year
