NMMU Registration 2023/2024: NMU 2023 Registration Dates

The Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU) was established on January 1, 2005, following the amalgamation of the University of Port Elizabeth’s PE Technikon and the University of Vista’s Port Elizabeth Campus (Vista PE).

The PE Technikon has its roots in the PE School of Art, the country’s oldest art school, founded in 1882; the University of Port Elizabeth (UPE), the country’s first residential dual media university, founded on January 31, 1964; and the Vista University Port Elizabeth campus, which provided access to higher education to underprivileged students.

The institution’s mission is to be a vibrant African university known for its leadership in the generation of cutting-edge knowledge for a sustainable future. A varied range of life-changing educational experiences for a better world is also part of the mission.
