Change the world

Nelson Mandela University is a new generation university intent on doing things differently in order to make a difference in the society it serves. This includes our approach in development problem-solving and user-inspired research that will contribute to sustainable development.

Research on a postgraduate level gives you the opportunity to contribute substantially to the development of new techniques, knowledge, ideas and approaches that can impact on a discipline or scientific field, as well as on your profession and society in general.

Our research strategy recognises the importance of critical inquiry, as well as the need to address societal challenges in terms of wealth creation and improving quality of life of people. It acknowledges the unique opportunity created by the merger in bringing two different academic cultures together.
