United World Colleges offer scholarships
Exceptional pupils have been invited to an information session on how to complete their high school diplomas abroad.
The Bermuda national committee for the United World Colleges has opened its doors to applications for the UWC 2022-2024 programme.
Successful applicants will be given a two-year scholarship and complete the International Baccalaureate programme at one of the UWC’s campuses around the world.
Sean Smatt, the chairman of UWC Bermuda, said: “A UWC education is like nothing else available to Bermuda students.
“It represents an amazing opportunity to explore the world and the cultures within it, while following a challenging IB academic curriculum at one of the 18 international UWC campuses.”
The information session will be held on Zoom on Wednesday, November 16.
The United World Colleges select candidates with strong academic potential and significant talent.
Those who attend have the opportunity to meet other young people from around the world and broaden their horizons.
A spokesman for the UWC said: “UWC believes that education can inspire students to discover what connects us all as humans, and to act as champions for a world of peace, collaboration and understanding.”
The deadline for applications is February 4 next year.
