WHAT SCHOOLS DO WE RUN? , The following YWAM/University of the Nations Schools (modules) are scheduled to run from YWAM Livingstone base in the next two year. If you have not already seen the Academic Calendar,  kindly navigate to it by clicking the link “School Dates 2010 to 2012″  above. Please note that even if our ideal is to provide modules close together enough to create a fast track Associates degree program,  we cannot guarantee availability of such a program because students enrolment in YWAM is modular. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that modules applying to one’s degree plan are available in a manner that fits with one’s personal educational journey.,

WILL ALL SCHOOLS START ON THE 15TH?,Yes they will! Just count off 84 days to get the end-date of the quarter. 12 weeks=84 days. For DTS students only,  the Field Assignment phase is only 8 weeks (56 days),  this means your whole school will be 140 days without counting your arrival and departure days. All other Schools have a full outreach of 84 days. 90-86 =6,  what do we do with those six day? We need those left over days to get ready for the next quarter. In case you arrive early or leave later than the 1st and the 84th day,  we will take care of your boarding for 3 days before the School 3 days after the school. Arriving much earlier than 3 days before or leaving later than 3 days after cost you about US$15 per person per day. Enjoy our your time with us!,

WHERE DO I GET VISA INFORMATION?, PLEASE CLICK THIS LINK FOR VISA INFORMATION!,

WHERE DO I GET GENERAL INFO ABOUT ZAMBIA?, PLEASE CLICK THIS LINK TO GET TO THE ZAMBIAN YELLOW PAGES The /www.yellowpages.co.zm site has all the basic information about Zambia,  you can get weather forecasts there and even some links to local papers. To find out the local exchange rate you can use the currency converters online or just ask your local bank for the current US$/ZMK exchange rates.,

ANYTHING ELSE I NEED TO KNOW BEFORE I APPLY?, Yes! We are a Christian organization training missionaries for the world. Those wishing to be trained from our location must be prepared to live in a cross-cultural environment giving respect to the local culture,  and making the necessary adjustments needed to communicate the Gospel to whoever wants to hear it. WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT ONLY PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN CHRISTIANS FOR AT LEAST TWO YEARS NEED TO APPLY!!!,

  • It is better to transfer money by Moneygram than by Western Union in Zambia because the latter only pays from what they receive from people who are sending,
  •  USA Dollar notes older than 2003 series will not be exchanged easily in Zambia (especially if they are not new and clean). Carry fifty Dollar bills  if you can because they are exchanged at a higher value than 1s, 5s, 10s,  and 20s,  in the Bureau de Exchanges (the banks will give you a flat rate for everything).,
  •  If you are in the Northern hemisphere your hottest months are our coldest (the weather is the opposite). It never snows in Zambia but once in a long while we get frost. Livingstone is more influenced by weather patterns simmilar to Zimbabwe and Botswana than the rest of Zambia.,
  •  It is easier to live and study in Zambia than most people imagine,  but you have to apply early and get the photocopies of all your documents certified by a lawyer as “certified true copies of the original”,  official stamp and lawyer’s signature and you will have less problems using them. You need to justify why you should get a work permit in Zambia by showing academic credentials that local folks do not have or doing it as a volunteer.,
  • There are more than 10 internet cafes in Livingstone but the speed is not always reliable.,
  • Livingstone is a growing thriving newly rediscovered old city. It is  the tourist capital of Zambia and has very basic infrastructure to keep things going.,
