UWC Malaysia Scholarship

Eligibility Criteria

All applicants who are citizens of and resident in Malaysia must apply for admission to a UWC through the UWC Malaysia National Committee, which selects applicants to represent Malaysia at the UWCs.Generally, there are three requirements to be met when applying to the Malaysian National Committee. An applicant must: 

  1. Be a Malaysian citizen
  2. Have completed or is completing Form 5/Year 11 (SPM, IGCSE, MYP or equivalent) in Malaysia
  3. Be over 16.0 and under 19.0 years of age on 1st August in the year of entry to college

If you are residing in Malaysia but do not possess Malaysian citizenship, applications to UWC should be done through the National Committee of your home country. If the above do not answer your eligibility concerns, please contact us at uwcmy.selection@gmail.com.All national committees use the same five core UWC selection criteria:

  • Intellectual curiosity and motivation
  • Active commitment
  • Social competence
  • Integrity, resilience and personal responsibility
  • Motivation to apply to UWC
Anybody can apply to UWC: we are looking for students who want to become a change-maker for a better world – independent of whether they are able to contribute financially to their studies.

Today, over 9,500 students from more than 155 countries are studying on one of the UWC campuses. Over 65% of UWC students selected for UWC through the UWC national committee system receive a full or partial scholarship, enabling admission to a UWC school to be independent of socio-economic means.


Students are selected based on a competitive selection process, via written application, personal and group interviews. UWC Graduates are involved throughout all selection processes.Due to a change in deadlines from UWC International, all candidates will apply with Mock/Trial or Predicted/Forecast exams results, as well as 2 years reports.

Interviews may be held in January, February and March. Exact dates will be confirmed later in the year. Application forms should be available for downloading in September or October.

After the application form submission deadline, successful candidates will be invited for individual interviews. The final shortlist will be drawn from these candidates who will be invited (by email) to the final round of group sessions; discussions and activities.Scholarships offered yearly to Malaysia for the IB Diploma program in UWCs worldwide vary from full to partial scholarships.
