Bellarmine University Short Programme

The Office for International Education at Nelson Mandela University believes that education is a strong and powerful tool, and so does one of the groups they received for a short program. Bellarmine University from Kentucky in the United States of America (USA), sent a 10 member group of students and faculty for a 3 week short programme at Nelson Mandela University that has commenced on 24 May 2017.

The purpose of this short programme to South Africa was to analyze and compare the education system in different schools in South Africa and then compare it to schools back home in the USA.
This programme included visits to schools that differed from each other in order to get accurate results to make an informed analysis. Schools that were visited included Woolhope High School, Lawson Brown High School, Sanctor High School, Walmer High School, St Dominic’s Priory, Mbonisilo Primary School, Papenkuil Primary School and Malabar Primary School.
Along with their school visits, the group was also able to explore Port Elizabeth and its surrounding areas. Excursions included a city culture tour of the city of Nelson Mandela Bay, a trip to Kragga Kamma Game Park, Addo Elephant and Schotia Game Parks. One of the group’s highlights of their visit was when they went Zip lining at Tsitsikamma, and had some free time to explore the nature reserve where the monkeys and birds were in abundance.
After an eventful and insightful trip, a much fulfilled group of students and faculty departed back home for Kentucky on 10 June 2017.
