This is our final issue as part of our celebration of Africa Month. This sixth issue is a tribute to our students who are writing mid-year examinations.

  Academic excellence is a product of hard work, focus, steadfastness and passion to succeed.  These attributes, will make our students succeed in their studies if they internalise, assimilate and live by them.

Having toiled throughout and succeeded with the semester DP’s, it is time now to finish the last lap and be a conqueror. You have done it, and you can do it again. It is about you, it’s your future and it is in your hands.

In the true Nelson Mandela University way, the journey towards changing the world has begun and continues. Sitting for examinations is an integral part of that journey.  

As you sit for this assessment that will act as a gateway towards preparing you for society and the world of work,  I wish you strength, tenacity and resilience and mostly success.


It is in your hands.  It is your future, continue to cultivate it.

 All the best of the best!!
