DILIJAN—UWC Dilijan, the first international boarding school in the CIS region and the only UWC in the post-Soviet space and the Middle East, is starting the admissions process for the 2021 academic year. The college is looking for outstanding, highly motivated young people aged 16-17 to join the UWC Dilijan family and the movement. The college is also launching a one-year Pre-Diploma program for students aged 15-16.
UWC Dilijan offers a two year International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP) for students aged 16 to 19. With the launch of the Pre-Diploma program, UWC Dilijan is now geared to accept students for the last three years of secondary school with a goal to maintain synergies of an excellent student body capable of coping with adversities and thrive in any environment. Currently, the college has 226 students from over 80 countries of the world; 220 of them are already on campus with four arriving in October.
As a school with students of 80 nationalities representing different walks of life, UWC Dilijan has a unique diverse community giving students an opportunity to interact with their counterparts not only from other nations and cultures but from mixed socio-economic backgrounds. For students from disadvantaged families, this represents a social lift, a chance to receive excellent education opening further opportunities. For the rest, it is also an opportunity to broaden their horizons and develop relationships with young people they usually would not be exposed to and to become more compassionate and motivated to cross barriers society often has.
UWC Dilijan is committed to developing the potential of each student to the fullest under the caring guidance of their teachers and mentors and hopes to help them become socially responsible citizens of any community they would find themselves in. UWCD alumni continue their education at leading universities worldwide – Princeton, Yale, Harvard, Brown, Columbia, UCL, Duke, Berkeley, McGill, University of Edinburgh, Minerva School at KGI and many more. Many UWC graduates become Davis Scholars, attending one of the 99 partner institutions in the USA via the Shelby Davis scholarship program.
