Application Process for 2011 Students

The application process for 2011 students is under way, and we are happy to announce that at present there are almost as many female applicants as male. We have also upgraded the criteria for selection and the application exam is a lot (a lot) more difficult than last year's.

We do not expect our students to know anything about computers, but a minimal knowledge of English is required. We are looking for youth who are not too shy and are highly motivated to study and learn. True to our mission, we are accepting applications only from youths from poor backgrounds who would otherwise not be able to continue with the goal of learning and mastering computer skills.

Already some of the prospective students for the 2011 school year have started to come in for their initial interviews. Some of the kids who have applied to Zanzibits heard about its existence from their friends who are students in the class of 2010.

The process goes as follows: Students come in for a short interview; this is helpful to get an idea of their English proficiency, and they register their name before taking an application. Most of the students who have applied are very qualified candidates.

The process has been a great success, and now the applicants are awaiting our call for the last interview evaluation.
