University Counselling

UWC Maastricht university counsellors guide and assist students through the university application process. As a UWC, all students undertake the IB Diploma Programme as their terminal degree in preparation for tertiary studies. The UWC Programme is an academically challenging and balanced programme of education that prepares students, aged 16 to19, for success at university and life beyond. It has been designed to address the intellectual, social, emotional and physical well-being of students. The programme has gained recognition and respect from the world’s leading universities.

At UWC Maastricht we help students make informed decisions about their university and scholarship opportunities through exposure to school-wide events, year and small-group information sessions, individual meetings and library resources. We prepare and send supporting materials to institutions throughout the final year of high school. DP students and their parents are welcome to email us with questions or to set up an appointment for a meeting to discuss individual needs.

UWC Maastricht administers the Cambridge Assessment tests for competitive UK applications and is an Official SAT ( and ACT ( test centre. We do not offer any preparatory training for the SAT reasoning and subject tests, which are offered at the school in October, November, December and June or for the ACT test which is offered in September, December and June. Our high school CEEB code is 759463.

Each year we host University Admissions Representatives from around the world to meet with our students.
