Admissions Policy
UWC Thailand International School believes in the principles of equality of educational opportunity for every child and as such does not discriminate on the basis of race, religious beliefs, gender or cultural background.

Admission to UWC Thailand is based on a demonstrated self-motivated attitude to learning as well as on educational suitability for enrolment as a student of the school. The decision to admit is based on information collected by means of an application form, previous school reports, an interview and placement tests in English Language and Mathematics.  

The school does provide learning support but can not cater for students with severe learning difficulties, or emotional and/or behavioral problems, and reserves the right to accept only those students for whom the school can provide an appropriate education.  

Non-native English speakers who wish to enrol in the Primary Years Programme (PYP), and who are not fluent in English, can be accepted into UWC Thailand and take supplementary ESOL.   

The school does not discriminate on the basis of race, colour, religion or national or ethnic origin in the administration of its admission policies.

All students need to have turned 3 by September 1st and be toilet trained in order to be eligible for the Kindergarten 1 class. Placement in Primary School is done mainly on the basis of the child’s age, but the school is open to considering other aspects of the child’s development or past school experience.  

Placement in Secondary School will be made on the basis of demonstrated educational interests and abilities of the student. As the International Baccalaureate Diploma is a two year course, students for Grades 11 and 12 are admitted only the beginning of the Grade 11 year, unless the student transfers from another IB school offering the same courses.  

Admission will be confirmed after receipt of the Application Form, an interview with the Head of School and after appropriate previous school records and results of Placement Tests have been assessed by the Head of School in consultation with the Admissions Manager.
