Applicants must download and fill out the attached application form, which is also available on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/somalilanduwc/ and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. This application form is the first step in this process; it is how the National Committee documents your contact information and notes your interest in attending a UWC. After applications have been received, a notice will be sent out informing applicants of the upcoming exam. This exam will take place in January 2018. The examination will use multiple-choice questions so the National Committee can reduce the applicants to 16 semi-finalists. The examination will also require essays, which the committee will judge for these 16 semi-finalists. The committee will not know the names of the applicants when evaluating their essays. At this point, 8 finalists will be invited to interview with the committee. The committee will then make its selections.
