Applications for August 2019 (current academic year)
Thank you for your interest in joining UWCSEA
Applications for the next academic year (commencing in August 2019) opened in September 2018. As of June 2019, we have a large number of eligible applicants already able to accept any place that becomes available between now and the start of the school year. We are in the process of communicating with families who have already submitted an application about these places.
We understand that families need certainty when planning schooling for their children, and therefore, because there is almost no possibility that a place will become available between now and the start of the school year, we are not accepting further applications for August 2019 entry.
However, we are still accepting applications for January 2020 for both campuses in K1 to Grade 8, with the exception of K2 on Dover Campus and Grades 3, 7 and 8 on East Campus.
To check which grade your child would be applying for, please refer to this age-grade chart.
The following admissions policies are very important:
- all day students must reside with at least one parent who is living in Singapore and is present for at least 90% of each term. Students applying to Grade 8 and above must apply to the boarding house if neither parent will be residing in Singapore
- In line with Singapore Government regulations that require Singaporean Citizens to attend MOE schools, we accept applications from Singaporean Citizens applying to Grade 1 and above and only in limited circumstances. Our prevailing policy on applications for Singapore Citizens is explained here - please content Admissions before submitting an application if your child is a Singapore Citizen, or may become a citizen during the application cycle.
- once a place is accepted, it is not possible to transfer campuses
- ensure that you provide all information relating to your child's learning or that might impact your child's ability to progress in all elements of our learning programme
Applications can only be made via our online application system. This User Guide to the application system outlines the documentation required. This timeline explains what happens after you have submitted an application.
