Fees and Scholarships

Places are awarded at a UWC on the basis of merit and potential, and the initial selection is a ‘needs blind’ process. We have limited funds but are able to provide some financial assistance to support students who might otherwise not be able to take up their places.

Applicants through UWC Great Britain are considered for means-tested scholarships that are awarded to eligible British students by Atlantic College and some international UWCs.  All candidates who are invited to an Assessment Day will need to fill out a means-testing form.  Candidates who are successful at the Assessment Day will be means tested by the Atlantic College.  If an applicant does not wish to apply for funding assistance then they should notify the Selections Team at the means testing stage so that the form can be waived.

Altantic College works in partnership with the GB National Committee to assess a family’s financial need and to award financial support where possible.  The funds available for this support are thanks to the generosity of donors – foundations, private individuals and alumni – and vary from year to year.  Bursaries are allocated on a needs basis and in the rank order of the candidates nominated through the selection process.  The level of support is calculated through a means testing procedure.

While we hope that no one is put off from applying for financial reasons, we understand that finance is a major consideration, and it is important that you are fully informed before beginning the applications process. Any questions about scholarship eligibility can be directed to Atlantic College
