Alumni share their thoughts on Nelson Mandela

The official launch of the University’s new name to that of Nelson Mandela University will take place tomorrow, Thursday 20 July.

As part of the campaign  lead-up to this high-profile event where the new look of Nelson Mandela University will be revealed, we share inputs from some of our Alumni Award recipients from across the globe on what the name Nelson Mandela means to them.


Our alumni represent the global footprint of the University and proudly share in the celebration of the new name and the value of our association with such an iconic leader.
