We have launched

The official launch of the University’s new name to  that of Nelson Mandela University took place on Thursday 20 July.

As part of the high-profiled event where the new look of Nelson  Mandela University was revealed, we shared inputs from some of our alumni award recipients  from across the globe on what the name Nelson  Mandela means to them. Please click on the  following link to view the video:



Our alumni represent the global footprint of the University and proudly share in the celebration of the new name and the value of our association with such an iconic leader.

This video, of our own staff and students, explains how we see ourselves as Nelson Mandela University, moving towards 2020. Vision 2020 is a “roadmap” which
provides a broad, overarching strategic framework that guides key choices and actions in a direction that foregrounds eight strategic priorities.
We hope you will join us on this exciting journey and that you will share this  3 minute YouTube video with your friends and family and on your social networks.
