Change the world


With safety being the overriding consideration, there will be no mass mask-to-mask registration for students on the University’s Gqeberha (Port Elizabeth) or George campuses this year.

While online registration is not new to Nelson Mandela University, with the majority of its 29 000 students already using the virtual option, various supporting mechanisms have also been implemented to especially assist first-year students with registration.

Virtual tutorials, easy access to academic administrative staff working remotely and other special arrangements to help those without access to a device (laptop or smartphone) or the internet are in place as registration gains momentum with the recent release of the 2020 matriculation and internal university results.

Registration is ongoing until 5 April, but all students are urged to register soonest, especially since the academic year starts on 15 March. In a bid to speed up processes and enable students waiting on the Reserve lists to be afforded the opportunity of studying at Mandela University, first-years have been given five working days to confirm their acceptance offer.

Registration Support

A full break down on all registration-related information can be accessed by going to

Students can register from anywhere by logging on to the Student Portal or the Nelson Mandela University website At the same time, information regarding student cards, permits, parking discs and the like, is made available. To access this and other zero-rated sites, students do not require data.

Accepted first-year students who require assistance with module selection will be invited to virtual registration sessions for their respective programmes in terms of the dates listed in the First Year Registration Guide. Please keep an eye out for these in your e-mail inbox from next week onwards as they also contain important information and the contact information for your respective consultant.  

You can also access contact details available in the First Year Registration Guide at

No Late applications

All applications for 2021 are closed, and the University, as guided by the Department of Higher Education, is not accepting any late applications or “walk ins”. Such latecomers are advised to make use of the Central Application Clearing House facility of the DHET.  See

Late Registration

The registration process will continue until 16 April 2021, but after 5 April there will be a late registration fee. 

The University is encouraging students to register as soon as they are able to do so, with the requisite down payments (see below) or NSFAS / bursary proof, because of the short time period before lectures start on 15 March.

Access to Students Not Registered

The University is also endeavouring to manage the challenges of the late allocation of NSFAS funding to qualifying students who are unable to register.

These students have been considered and will still be given access to the University information resources through services such as email, access to the LMS (Moodle), MS Teams, etc so that they can continue to study remotely until such time as they are able to register.
