Office for International Education

The Office for International Education (OIE) at Nelson Mandela University always takes pride in hosting international visitors from Partner Universities abroad. This was most certainly the case when the Senior Director of the OIE, Dr Nico Jooste, was approached in 2017 by Botswana International University of Science and Technology’s (BIUST) International Student Office in requesting assistance and guidance in setting up their own policies and procedures in their newly established International Education office.

German Ambassador, Martin Schaefer and members of the embassy have embarked on a tour around the Port Elizabeth region from 30 January – 2 February in which they have visited education initiatives, engaged with German and South African partners and stopped at academic institutions.

During the tour, Ambassador Schaefer used the embassy’s mascot, a 1970’s Volkswagen (VW) Kombi revamped to showcase German culture, language and lifestyle. Its name, #KhombiSAGermany, is a play on the isiZulu expression “Khombisa” (to show) and the nickname “Kombi” for the VW bus. The bus invited South Africans to “hop on and discover Germany”.
