Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU) is an engaged and people-centred university serving the needs of diverse communities by contributing to sustainable development through excellent academic programmes and research.
As a result of the merger between the former University of Port Elizabeth and the former Port Elizabeth Technikon, the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU) chapter came into being in 2005.
This chapter works in collaboration with the University’s International Office to encourage diversity and inclusiveness. With a steadily growing international student population at NMMU, Golden Key has also established itself as a link to the rest of Africa.
