    Are the information really up to date. When we phone no answers. When I email no replies.
    how can I reach the people for urgent application information. Can you please provide a mobile phone number because we are not sure sometimes of the correct time.

    Thank you. Hope my comments will be taken in good spirit.

    According to some sources, the UZMS English Program is somewhat understaffed, so it takes them a while to get back to people. In addition, they are on vacation for a good while between July and September (classes begin in October), so bear that in mind. I have had good luck in emailing the school, as long as I allow a week or so for them to respond. Good luck!
