Eligibility Criteria

Discover UWC ISAK Japan’s transformative 3-year and 2-year programs. Check your eligibility for Grade 10 entry or explore Grade 11 options through your UWC national committee or the Global Selection Programme. Stay updated on events and activities, and reach out to our Admissions team for guidance on your application journey.

Grade 10 Entry (3-year program)

Our Admissions Office is responsible for selecting students to join our 3-year high school program (Grades 10-12) starting in August each year.

To apply for the 2025-2026 school year, you must meet two criteria:

  • You must be enrolled in the equivalent of US Grade 9 / UK Year 10 / Japanese middle school Grade 3 at the point of application and will have completed this grade by August 2025.
  • You must have been born between January 1, 2009 and December 31, 2010.
High School Application Opens in September 2024

If you do not meet both criteria, unfortunately, we will not be able to accept your application for 2025 Grade 10 entry. If you are in Grade 8 or younger and/or born in or after 2011, you are not eligible to apply for Grade 10 entry. Please check your eligibility for other UWC ISAK Japan programs and register your information for our prospective student mailing list to stay updated on events and activities.

Grade 11 Entry (2-year program)

Note that we do not accept direct applications for Grade 11 entry. If you are already in Grade 10 and wish to apply to UWC, you can either apply through the UWC national committee in your country of residence/citizenship or through the Global Selection Programme (GSP).

Please contact your UWC national committee for information on eligibility and the application process and timeline, including information about financial assistance. 

If you’re able to pay full school fees, you can apply through the GSP. Remember, you can only apply through one application pathway per year.

Please note that due to the nature of the two-year IB Diploma Programme, we cannot accept applications for Grade 12 entry or mid-year transfers.

Contact our Admissions team ([email protected]) if you have any questions regarding your eligibility.

Imagine… if there was an ISAK lower school!

Dear Friends of UWC ISAK,

UWC ISAK is celebrating its 10th anniversary! We are proud of where we’ve come from, and we are excited about the next decade.

At this important milestone, we are wondering – in pursuit of broadening our impact, could an ISAK Lower School be considered as one of the options and would it be feasible? A school that embraces ISAK values and vision for a better future?

As we embark on this journey, if you would like to participate in possible market research and receive updates, please subscribe to our mailing list.
