Embracing and celebrating our alumni once more


The nominations for the Alumni Awards 2017 are now open and last date for submission: Monday, 16 October 2017.


The Nelson Mandela University Alumni Association once again invites alumni and academic departments to nominate alumni achievers for the 2017 Alumni Achiever and Alumni Rising Star Awards to acknowledge individuals who have made their mark locally, nationally and internationally. Our alumni represent our global footprint and it is fitting that we recognize their achievements at all levels and in all disciplines.
