for tomorrow

Office for International Education

The Office for International Education meets and greets all new arriving International Students. Familiarising students with their immediate cultural and academic environment is of utmost importance. For this reason NMMU offers a comprehensive orientation programme that introduces students to Port Elizabeth and surrounds, the Campus and the Culture. Pre-registration aids students in selecting courses and collating all the required documentation prior to actual registration. Excursions focus on social and local integration as well as coming to grips with cultural diversity.
