UWC Liberia has sent a considerate number of students to the various United World Colleges through its national committee.

Early this year 2019, UWC Liberia sent six students to the United World Colleges. 

UWC Liberia selects astute and well - rounded Liberian students who are from the class range of 9th to 12th grade. Every year the UWC Liberia National committee sends out application forms to the general public and to schools. Students that complete the application forms and submit it, their applications are automatically reviewed by the national committee. The national committee selects up to 500 applicants for the evaluation process.  The evaluation process is a vigorous one with many stages and projects.
