Vaccination stance

While Nelson Mandela University acknowledges the right of every individual to vaccinate or not, it strongly advocates every staff member and student to vaccinate for their own good and that of others. It is our greatest defence against the pandemic and will significantly contribute to fostering a safer campus environment for all.

The University will also constantly monitor and verify the vaccination status of students and staff. Students, for example, will be asked to upload their vaccination certificate at registration. Furthermore, during the year and depending on directives from the national government and the Department of Higher Education and training, we will adjust our strategy if needed.
