Message to Alumni

Warm greetings to all our alumni across the globe.


We have all experienced the impact of the Covid-19 lockdown and related regulations at various levels in our daily lives. Our work, social and recreational activities all required some adaptation and in some instances we had to learn novel ways of doing things rapidly because the situation demanded it.


Be it engineering or entrepreneurial skills, an ability to network, educate or simply to remind us of the positives in the midst of COVID-19 pandemic, Nelson Mandela University alumni are doing their bit.

From fast-tracking the urgent need for ventilators in hard-hit New York through to using the gift of telling stories and educating communities in how to prevent the spread of the invisible virus, alma mater around the globe are doing the University proud in the fight against coronavirus.
