Change the world


Nelson Mandela University has transferred a number of those services traditionally hosted on its campuses in Port Elizabeth and George at the start of the academic year, to online platforms for health and safety reasons.

The University’s ICT Services have automated services for both new and returning students, to alleviate the need for crowds, queues and face-to-face interaction on the campuses in the face of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The online measures are also aimed at pre-empting the need for “walk-ins” once the matric results are released on 23 February. The University’s applications for studying in 2021 closed in November last year and no “walk-ins” are being accepted.

In fact, the University is presently not allowing visitors onto its campuses given the present Lockdown Level 3 restrictions and high infection numbers in the country.  Its Welcoming Ceremony and supporting events will also be held virtually for the same reason. Details will be communicated.

All students who have been provisionally accepted and any others with queries, should use the University’s online platforms to seek guidance and support (as shared below).
