Hi! Thank you a lot for your message.
The application to UWC differs slightly from country to country. In some they would ask you to write an application, send in your grades, and then maybe they will interview you before giving you a place. I applied through the Chilean national committee, and I also had to attend a three-day camp, which probably allowed me to show much more of my personality and the things I like and my thoughts on different topics.
I would recommend you just to be yourself! If it is a really short application, try to keep in mind they want to get to know you in depth, so make the best use of the space they give you (orally or written)
The school in Norway is located on the countryside, 3 hours drive from Norway’s second largest city, Bergen. The school campus is beautiful, but relatively small once you’ve been there for a while. That can be both positive or negative depending on your personality. I got very close to my friends, my roommates and classmates, with whom I still keep in touch after years.
I hope my response was someway helpful. If you have any other particular question don’t hesitate in writing me!
