ISAK has received final approval to become a UWC school, and in August 2017, our name will change to UWC ISAK Japan. If you are interested in applying to ISAK for Grade 11 enrollment (IB DP), you will need to apply to ISAK through the UWC national committee in your country. Please visit the UWC website to learn more about the UWC movement. Note that ISAK is not accepting any direct entry applications for Grade 11 (IB DP).
How to Apply to ISAK through UWC
Each UWC national committee has its own selection process and application deadlines. Please visit your country’s UWC national committee website for more details regarding UWC eligibility and the application process. Additional admissions information is also available on the UWC website.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Can I apply directly to ISAK for Grade 11 (IB DP) enrollment, or do I have to apply through a UWC national committee?
A. From 2017, ISAK will not be accepting direct entry applications for Grade 11 (IB DP Year 1). You will need to apply to ISAK via your country’s UWC national committee. Please note that students usually apply to the UWC movement, rather than to any one particular UWC college. Each applicant’s preferences are taken into consideration, but placement at a particular UWC school or college cannot be guaranteed.
Q. How many students will ISAK accept for Grade 11?
A. For the 2017-2018 academic year, ISAK plans to accept 30 students for Grade 11 enrollment. For the 2018-2019 academic year, we plan to accept approximately 40 students.
Q. What is the IB DP?
The IB DP (International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme) is a two-year curriculum that is recognized by more than 100 universities as a university entrance certificate. Please see our IB Diploma Programme page for more information about the IB DP at ISAK.
Q. I am already studying the IB DP at a different school. Can I transfer to ISAK for my second year of the IB DP?
Students applying to ISAK through a UWC national committee must attend ISAK for both years of the IB DP. Depending on the eligibility requirements of your national committee, you might have the option of applying to ISAK for Grade 11, even if you have already started the IB DP at another school. Students who join a UWC school or college after starting the IB DP at another school usually take different subjects than at their former school, or take more Higher Level subjects.
Q. Can I transfer to ISAK from another UWC school?
UWC students who have started on the IB DP are not allowed to transfer between UWC schools.
