Are there scholarship opportunities?

Most Somali students are awarded a 100% scholarship to attend UWC. Students are selected independently of their parents' ability to pay for their tuition fees. After a student is selected, parents may be asked to contribute to the student's school fees according to their ability. 

I am not fluent in English, does this matter?

No. Do not be discouraged from applying to UWC because of a lack of fluency in English. It is not a requirement to apply, but it can be one of the factors evaluated during selection.

Can you help me with a scholarship for further education (university etc)?

UWC does not offer scholarships for university or further tertiary education.

How can I get a visa?

If you are admitted to a UWC, our national committee and the specific UWC school will assist you throughout the visa procedure.

Can I attend a specific college?

No. You are able to state your preference both in the application form or interview. However, it is at the discretion of the national committee to decide what school is best, for the prospective candidate. 

I don’t have a passport. What will happen?

Applicants are encouraged to have passports. But the national committee will give you logistical support where necessary.
