NELSON MANDEL A METROPOLITAN UNIVERSIT Y
For International Students
CUTTING-EDGE KNOWLEDGE FOR YOUR TOMORROWUNDERGRADUATE PROSPECTUS
Its a unique situation we find ourselves in at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU).
To the natural environment - located in a nature reserve and on the edge of a Bay with magnificent beaches and rich marine resources. The Bay guarantees a quality of life second to none while providing us with a gateway to the world.
We are also increasingly connected to the world, with more than 10% of our student body drawn from diverse backgrounds outside South Africa. Yet, Port Elizabeth, now incorporated into Nelson Mandela Bay, has not only all the amenities of a city but the friendly warmth and connectedness of a much smaller town.
To the history of South Africa, named as we are after one of the icons of the struggle for freedom and democracy and located in a region that was the cradle of that struggle.
To a city, Nelson Mandela Bay, which is home to some one million people who work in manufacturing industries specializing in motor vehicle assembly and agricultural processing, tourism and the services sector.
Some of these industries are local subsidiaries of multi-national companies and a part of our mandate is to provide highly skilled people to work in the local economy.

Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University
NMMU is the biggest tertiary institution in the Eastern Cape
Province, with some 25 000 students enrolled on six different
campuses - five in Nelson Mandela Bay (Port Elizabeth) and
one in the beautiful city of George. The University offers a full
spectrum of career-focused, academic-oriented and professional
programmes - from diploma through to doctoral level.
Our programmes are recognised and accredited by the relevant
professional bodies locally and, in many cases, internationally.
Given the increasing appeal of our programmes to international
students, that accreditation is important, and we intend to
further increase our international connections.
Our students can already be found working around the globe.
Our teaching and research staff enjoy collegial relationships with
academics at top institutions in their fields. The University and
the surrounding communities are geared up for the increasingly
cosmopolitan nature of our campuses, and a wide range of
student services and support facilities are offered to assist
international students in every aspect of student life - from what
to study, to where to live, to finding a job after graduation.
The quality of life enjoyed at this University on the Bay is
complimented by a significantly lower cost of living against
national and international benchmarks.
Our highest priority is to promote academic excellence through varied curricula, the standard of teaching
throughout all faculties, and through innovative and applied research for social and economic development.
NMMU is committed to the ideal of providing our students and
scholars with a stimulating, vibrant and critical educational
experience. To provide this experience, NMMU offers world-class
and modern teaching and learning facilities, excellent lecturers and
researchers, as well as library and computer facilities. Beyond the
classroom, we also offer a diverse variety of educational support
services to support the learning and social needs of our students. We
also offer cultural, sports and recreational activities on our various
campuses in Port Elizabeth and George.
We encourage you to take full advantage of this unique opportunity
in your life to engage in all aspects of campus life, seeing this as
an integral part of your educational journey at NMMU. Our staff
and our students come from all walks of life, with many different
cultures, faiths and geographical origins, and we invite you to
form part of this multicultural and cosmopolitan community.
We celebrate our diversity, and see this as an immense source
of strength. NMMU celebrates and actively promotes not only
its cultural diversity, but also its intellectual diversity, critical and
creative thinking and knowledge as a source of public good.
We are committed to the ideal of ensuring our students are fully
equipped with all the knowledge, skills and expertise they require
to finding their way in an increasingly complex and rapidly changing
world. We want our graduates not only to fit into society, but also
change the world to becoming a better place for all.
Prof. Derrick Swartz
Welcome to Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University! Joining a university for the first time in ones
life is one of the most extraordinary and once in a lifetime experiences. We invite you to embrace this wonderful experience with full gusto. Here, you will find a University that places the centrality of ideas right at the heart of everything we do.
Its a place of excellent teaching with a vibrant community that equips students for life. Academics, students and those from the surrounding community with a stake in the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University, share their views on the institution.
The Eastern Cape is home to six of South Africas recognised biomes and in keeping with this
theme, the NMMU has the privilege of being situated within a nature reserve. The absolute
pleasure of living and working in this gem of a campus has a lot to do with its vibrant student
community, excellent support services and committed and friendly staff, not to mention the close
proximity to the sea, as well as unspoilt and rugged mountainous terrain. With no part of the
city ever being more than twenty minutes from another, the quality of life in the Friendly City is

The Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University has a very close network with industry and facilitates
robust networking with business through their career fairs, bursary offerings, and inviting
guest speakers from industry to teach and speak on their various programmes. This integrates
theory with practice and forms a critical link, which makes their teaching relevant to industry

I decided to study at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU) because it had a calm
to it. There was no hustle and bustle, and my sister had studied Health Sciences at NMMU. From
studying at the University, Ive learnt that there is no situation that you cannot take control of and
that every obstacle is preparing you for something great.
