Information for EAL applications

Dover IS Academics

This page provides a summary of the EAL programme available to English Language Learners (ELLs) (those with a home language other than English) at UWCSEA, and describes the expectations for all applicants.

From the admissions cycle for entry in the 2023/2024 school year, most K1 - Grade 8 applicants who are ELLs will not be invited to take any English language assessment. Instead, our Admissions team and EAL Coordinators will determine whether the applicant meets our entry criteria based on the applicant’s previous English language exposure, including years of studying English in an English Medium Institution (EMI), whether they are currently in an EAL programme, and other factors.

Re-applicants who may have previously been invited for an English language assessment will not be asked to take an assessment. Re-applications will be reviewed as described below based on their grade of application.

Guidelines for Applicants

Bilingual Schooling: Applicants currently studying in bilingual programmes may or may not meet our entry criteria. We may reach out to the applicant’s current school to provide additional information about the child’s English language and literacy skills.
