Cooperation UOL / NMU

25 years of cooperation with Nelson Mandela University - a success story

The University of Oldenburg has been cooperating with the South African partner university Nelson Mandela University in Gqeberha since 1998. Originally established in the field of education, the cooperation is now active and successful in various disciplines. In addition to a continuously growing professional exchange and many joint projects financed by third-party funds, the university is an attractive study destination, especially for students from Oldenburg.

The upcoming 25th anniversary of cooperation began with a delegation trip from the University of Oldenburg to Gqeberha in November 2022. The subject of the visit to South Africa was various reviews of the extensive cooperation activities in more than 16 subjects, an interdisciplinary symposium initiated by both universities and the signing of a new long-term cooperation agreement.
