'Zoom In On UWC!' Webinar Format:
Our Zoom In On UWC webinars will run throughout the year on various Thursday evenings, up to the application deadline for new students.
Each webinar will be focused on different topics about UWC and the process of applying. These topics will be repeated in cycles, to allow everyone the opportunity to attend each webinar topic and ask questions. You can check the schedule of upcoming webinars above.
At each webinar our hosts will welcome all the attendees, introduce the guest speakers (current students, alumni and parents) and explain the format for the webinar and how to ask questions. There will an introductory presentation which will cover the most frequently asked questions for each webinar topic, after which the hosts will open the floor up to attendees to ask additional questions.
For the final part of the webinar, the attendees and guest speakers will be divided up into smaller breakout rooms, to allow for a more personal opportunity to chat and ask further questions.
Each webinar will be recorded and made available for viewing for those unable to attend.
