How can there be peace without people understanding each other, and how can this be if they don’t know each other?

The striking feature of the UWC is that they embrace the entire world. They are unique and they are conscious of their responsibilities.

UWC was one of the ten members of the international schools association that created the International Baccalaureate Organization in Geneva in 1963 … today, they are taken in over 4,000 schools worldwide and have become the gold standard for university entrance.

Sir John Daniel

Chair of UWC International Board and International Council 

I regard it as the foremost task of education to ensure the survival of these qualities: an enterprising curiosity, an undefeatable spirit, tenacity in pursuit, readiness for sensible self-denial and above all, compassion.

German Educator, Founder of United World Colleges


Application Fees

The application fee is 500 CNY. Students who are selected to participate in the selection day activities will be charged 750 CNY.

Students who are unable to pay the application fees because of their family financial situation are encouraged to contact the JSC for a fee waiver. Please email us at, and we will explain the procedures for applying for financial aid and the supporting documents that we will need.

School Fees

For the 2024-2025 academic year, the fees for the 18 UWC schools and colleges range from 150,000 CNY to 400,000 CNY.

UWC Changshu China’s total fee will be 370,000 CNY approximately per academic year when including fees for all our academic, co-curricular and residential programmes, all of which are complementary and essential part of the UWC educational experience.

Needs-Based Sholarships

At UWC schools and colleges, students come from a deliberately diverse range of backgrounds (socio-economic, culture, race, religion, nationality) and experiences. We especially welcome and encourage students from disadvantaged backgrounds to apply to the UWC movement. We are continually working towards providing up to 100% needs-based scholarship coverage for all selected students.

Students are selected on the basis of demonstrated merit and potential, irrespective of their family financial background.

Once selected, students in the Regular Admission stream are eligible to apply for UWC needs-based scholarships. Please note that students selected through the Early Admission stream are not eligible to apply for UWC needs-based scholarships.

If students need scholarship support for their two to three years in UWC, they should state this need upfront during their initial application for needs-based scholarship. FP students should not plan to apply for additional or higher scholarship provisions in their DP 1 and 2 years.
