Procedure

Download the application materials:

Step 1

Complete Part 1 (one page) only.  Please send to selection.nz@nc.uwc.net as soon as you can. The format for this information is less important than the content.  Your early submission allows us to assess application numbers and start arranging potential interview locations.

Step 2

Complete Parts 1 – 3 of the application form. Upload each part, along with supporting documents, to a Google drive named “Firstname Lastname UWC application 2019 entry”, and share the drive with selection.nz@nc.uwc.net. We appreciate these arriving by Friday 7 December 2018, but we will continue to accept applications (and/or changes to your application files and documents within the Google drive) up until Monday 28 January 2019.

Ask your school principal or dean to complete Part 4 and either submit in a sealed envelope to our postal address below or send from their school email address to selection.nz@nc.uwc.net.

If you do not have easy access to the internet, you may submit a hard copy application to either of the postal addresses below.

Please use a clear font or write clearly in black ink or black ballpoint pen.  Extra sheets may be used. 

Parts 1 (again) and 2 of this form are to be completed by the student.

Part 3 of this form is to be completed by the parent or guardian

Part 4 of this form is to be completed and sent separately in a sealed envelope to the postal address below by the student's school principal or dean.

Step 3

Upload your NCEA results to your application Google drive and share with selection.nz@nc.uwc.net, as soon as possible after results are sent out.
