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.


The fees for each college for entry in 2018 (2019 for Waterford Kamhlaba) as well as expected additional costs can be seen in the below document. Please note that fees listed are for the complete two-year programme. They will be paid in the local currency and so can fluctuate based on exchange rates.


Applicants through UWC Great Britain are considered for means-tested scholarships if requested that are awarded to eligible British students by Atlantic College and some international UWCs.  All candidates who are invited to an Assessment Day and wish to be considered for a scholarship will need to fill out a means-testing form.  Candidates who are successful at the Assessment Day will be means tested by Atlantic College. 

Atlantic College works in partnership with UWC Great Britain 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 that can be provided is calculated through a means testing procedure and will vary each year.

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.
