Application Process

 UWC Albania Selection Process 2021-2023

Places in UWC are offered on a competitive basis. This application is carefully reviewed by a panel composed of members of the National Committee of UWC Albania, Albanian and foreign alumni of UWC, and international partners of UWC. The application process for 2021-2023 students involves three phases:

  1. The application form and supporting documents are due on January 10, 2021. Only complete application packages from eligible applicants will be considered. You will be notified by email if your application is eligible within two weeks. 
  2. The applications will be reviewed by a panel of Albanian UWC alumni online. All applicants will be interviewed by UWC alumni and staff over VOIP: Skype, Whatsapp, or phone during two weeks in February 2021.  Candidates will be allocated an interview time and can choose the mode of communication.
  3. Short-listed applicants will be invited to submit additional documents and participate in a selection weekend in March 2021. This phase of the selection process may be conducted online, due to the current coronavirus pandemic.
