Prospective postgraduate students who wish to study at Nelson Mandela University in 2023 are invited to apply online for a postgraduate certificate, diploma, honours, master’s or doctoral degree using our online application system. 

In order to ensure adequate time for application, processing and planning by the University and yourself, applications for early admission in 2022 should be submitted by 5 August 2022. Places in some qualifications are limited, and it is therefore in your best interest to submit your application form and ALL supporting documentation as soon as possible. Late applications may be considered after this date, if there is still space available in the course you wish to apply for, and on academic merit until 30 September 2022.
