Students who are Afghan citizens living in Afghanistan or refugees in other countries are encouraged to apply to the UWC National Committee of Afghanistan.
Please be aware that you are not qualified to submit an application through the UWC National Committee of Afghanistan if you are a permanent resident or a citizen of a nation other than Afghanistan. Please send your application to the national committee of the nation in where you were born or where you currently reside permanently.
The complete application process for this year will be done online. This implies that you can submit an application from anywhere in the world without having to worry about the logistics of the entire selection process.
Aside from the six topics listed above, there are three core aspects of the IB curriculum that are taught:
According to their needs, 70% of students get full or partial financial aid.
UWC is committed to the support, growth, and welfare of its students.
In order to help our students negotiate the frequently challenging experience of living and studying in a residential school setting—often far from home—while pursuing a demanding academic and co-curricular curriculum, UWC recognizes the vital role that spiritual care plays.
In addition to serving as houseparents, student advisors, peer support networks, nurses, counselors, deans of students, health and wellness specialists, heads of residential life, psychologists, and psychotherapists, all UWC locations have a team of on-site staff who also provide access to local and campus healthcare.
If you are selected by the national committee, you will be in charge of collecting the necessary travel papers (passport, visa, etc.). UWC cannot assure you that a visa will be issued. An applicant’s acceptance to attend UWC may be revoked if they are unable to obtain a visa.
Nominated students may need to go to a neighboring nation in order to receive visas for their chosen colleges because Kabul does not have any consular services. Please be aware that the National Committee of Afghanistan cannot provide any support; this is solely the responsibility of the student and their family.
