Selection Process

The Belize UWC Selections process may vary slightly year by year.  However, below are descriptions of some assessments that may be used.  Applicants are required to check their email frequently.  You may be required to attend a Selections Camp and/or a Final Interview.  Location for camp and interview is determined on an annual basis.  The UWC Belize committee is not responsible for passage expenses.

The Belize UWC Selection Process:

Phase 1

General Application Phase where students are asked to complete the online application.  The application form consists of personal information, most recent grades, information about their ambitions, as well as information about what activities they are involved with.  Each application must be submitted with their most recent transcript.

Phase II

Essay where students are given 7-8 short answer essays.  These essay questions include questions on their goals for the future, knowledge of local and international issues, as well as questions about what they understand the UWC's mission to be.

Phase III

A volunteering Phase where students are required to spend a certain number of hours giving back to Belize by volunteering at a local charitable organisation of their choice.  This is a wonderful and fulfilling experience.

Phase IV

Selections Camp Phase where students are required to attend a day camp (location to be determined) usually held during the first week of February.  At the camp students are able to meet UWC alumni, as well as the other applicants.  They are given more information about UWC, and allowed to partake in group discussion and activities.

Phase V

One-on-one interview where the semifinalists are interviewed by a panel of the UWC Belize Selection Committee members.  This process is intended for the committee to be able to get to know the student better.
