Make a Difference while studying at Nelson Mandela University


It is always fulfilling to give back to the community, and the Office for International Education has created a platform from which International Students can do this.

This service learning is offered as a credit bearing module where students can obtain 8 Nelson Mandela University credits (2 USA credits / 4 ECTS credits) for volunteering 2 hours per week, attending community service learning workshops and submitting a journal and visual presentation on their experiences at the projects.

Students who have too many credits or very little time in their university study timetable but would love to give back and make a difference are also welcome to volunteer without obtaining the credits or submitting a journal and presentation. These students are, however, encouraged to attend the workshops as these provide the necessary platform and guidance when volunteering in South African communities.

The practical component will be arranged for students which includes transport to the different projects.
