AND AFTER UWC?

Supporting students in taking the next steps: University and Career Counselling at UWC Robert Bosch College

Our University and Career Counsellor supports students in planning their journeys after UWC. From university choices and vocational training opportunities to Gap Year programs or volunteer work – we help students set future goals, find suitable programs and submit their applications. Over the years, UWC has built an excellent network of schools and universities worldwide which provide our students with scholarships for their journeys onward, this helping us guarantee higher education irrelevant of the graduates’ financial background.

 

UNIVERSITY PLACEMENT WORLDWIDE

Most of the students at UWC Robert Bosch College are headed to College or University right after finishing the International Baccalaureate. This international degree is recognized worldwide and guarantees admission into most universities and colleges. While a wide range of places of study is available to students with a completed IB Diploma, the most popular destinations are the USA, followed by Canada, the UK and Germany. Depending on the country of study, regulations regarding recognition may differ and these can be discussed in advance with our counsellor. The students of our first two generations have been accepted into universities all over the world, among them Stanford, Yale, NYU Abu Dhabi, Princeton University, the University of British Columbia, the University of Edinburgh, Sciences Po, Humboldt Universität Berlin and many more. Most of them have also received excellent scholarships which cover most of their expenses. In the U.S., students are supported by the Davis UWC Scholarship Program. As an alternative to academic studies, students can choose to pursue vocational training. Among our recent graduates are nurses in training, carpenters and event engineers.

It was only after UWC, when I found myself volunteering in rural South India for my gap year, that I realized how eye-opening the experience I underwent during these two years in Freiburg had been. I felt ready to approach people that were so different from me, enforced communication rather than judgement, and knew that it was worth demonstrating perseverance even in very difficult situations and moments of failure. UWC has taught me to open my eyes rather than look away and I am proud to have undergone this unique education that continues even beyond graduation.
