Selection Process

The application process consists of two stages - the Application stage and Interview stage.

Application stage

The application stage consists of an online form. Candidates are required to create a profile and fill out our online application form which includes six sections, for example personal info, essay section, parent/guardian consent and other information.

Interview stage

Once the UWC Ireland National Committee has reviewed applications we will invite shortlisted candidate to an interview day - generally a weekend day in mid-February. You must be available for interview on that day to apply as there is a group element to the interview process.

For 2022, due to the COVID-19 situation, the interviews will be held over Zoom on 19th Feb 2022.

Applications for 2022 are now open!

For 2022 entry we have 3 two-year scholarships available, 1 up-to-fully funded and 2 partially funded. Please see the school fees details below and note that all our scholarships are means tested.
