WDS partner Universities are chosen to be located all over the world so that each region is represented by a University that acts as the main attraction point for students from its neighboring countries to reach the utmost coverage over the three continents. Interested students from each region will apply to the nearest partner university to be part of the WDS.

The managerial structure of the WDS partners will be as shown in the following figure. Each University will nominate a representative to be a member in the higher administration board and is considered as the program coordinator in the University. Each year these representatives decide on the plan for the year and define the details of the studied project together with strong consultation from the side of the host University coordinator. The representatives will also manage a number of committees as shown.
