GSP Application Process

UWC ISAK Japan offers a unique and challenging learning experience. To determine if UWC ISAK Japan is the right school for you, the GSP application process seeks to learn as much as possible about you, and gives you the opportunity to learn more about us along the way.

The GSP selection process assesses students according to the UWC Selection Criteria and consists of the following 4 stages:

The first stage of your application requires you to complete a GSP application form. Your GSP application journey begins when you set up a username and password that you will use to access your application as you move through the process. Please remember that the GSP application route does not offer any financial aid to successful applicants.


Once you start your application, you and your parents/guardians are welcome to reach out to us to ask any questions you may have. We are available via email or we can also set up a video call.

If your application is successful you will be invited to an online selection day involving group activities, a project presentation and an emotional wellbeing questionnaire. You will receive this invitation from the UWC GSP team.

Successful GSP selection day applicants are invited for an official screening conversation with the admissions team.
