Open days

Every year, the University offers prospective students an “insider view” on what they can expect when they study at Nelson Mandela University. These Open Days take place in April/May of each year in both Gqeberha and George. In Gqeberha, the event takes place over two days at the Missionvale Campus Indoor Sport Centre and also over two days on the George Campus.

Open Day takes the form of a large exhibition with stalls from all departments and faculties at the university showing what they have to offer. It offers an opportunity to learners, prospective students, parents and educators to get greater clarity about study options and career choices at this comprehensive university. Visitors to Nelson Mandela University’s Open Day can expect to interact with lecturers and staff from all the faculties.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Open Days are held virtually. Visit our current Open Day website for more information.
