The two year UWC IB course selection process consists of five steps
Decide whether you want to attend a UWC college for the last two years of your secondary education (shorter is not possible).

Successful candidates will be notified in the first weeks of January.
Successful candidates are invited to the selection days (3-4 Feb 2024). The selection day consist of interviews, group discussion and writing two short essays, assessed by the Selection Committee. This committee is mainly composed of ex-students. The interviews take place at the ‘King Baudouin Foundation’ in Brussels.
Candidates retained after Step 4 are subsequently interviewed by an independent jury, which takes the final decision. The interviews take place at the ‘King Baudouin Foundation’ in Brussels on the 24th of Feb.
