Welcome to Nelson Mandela University (NMU)!

The orientation programme in January and February is but the start of activities that have been designed to assist you in adjusting to university and understanding how things work at NMU. We want to ensure that your first year experience is a successful and enjoyable one. We would also like you to understand the value of developing a good all round education.

You will be assisted by senior students (How2 Buddies) and staff from your faculty to settle in and to ensure a smooth transition for you. The How2 Buddies will be easily identifiable by their blue T-shirts.

Do not miss this wonderful opportunity to kick-start your university career!

Read through the First Year Orientation Guide before you arrive on campus so that you know what to expect. If you are unsure about anything, do not hesitate to contact us.

We look forward to seeing you!

Warm regards
Shereene Knipp and the O-Team
