About this site

This site is dedicated to the fees issues within the higher education sector and in particular its impact at Nelson  Mandela Metropolitan University.


We’re building a database of volunteers – staff and members of the community - who are committed to helping our students complete their 2016 academic year.

If you would like to become part of the solution, please complete the accompanying online form.



Nelson Mandela University and the Eastern Cape Development Corporation (ECDC) have entered into a three-year partnership agreement aimed at revitalising and stimulating the provincial economy in line with Operation Phakisa objectives.

An educational mobile application, the brainchild of a Nelson Mandela University student, will soon shape the next generation of software developers in the rural and township schools in the Eastern Cape.

Nelson Mandela University’s Bachelor of Laws (LLB) programme is one of only three LLB programmes in the country to have been given confirmed accreditation by the Council on Higher Education (CHE).

Reasons to be Proud: Congratulations to four of our students from the School of Language, Media and Communication who were selected to participate and represent South Africa at the International Youth Organization Forum & Beijing Youth Camp in Beijing, China recently.
