The SCSU Education Abroad program in South Africa is located in Port Elizabeth on the coast of the Indian Ocean. The host university, Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University, is located on a nature reserve where it is not uncommon to see local wildlife such as monkeys, antelope and zebras. NMMU has a convenient campus with the lecture halls, library, cafeteria, and residence halls all within easy walking distance of each other, and the beach is just a stone's throw away!
St. Cloud State University participates in an exchange program with Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (formerly the University of Port Elizabeth). This program offers students the opportunity to study the art, music, culture, economy, history, politics, and many other aspects of South Africa through a personal living and studying experience. Please note: you don't have to be St. Cloud State student to apply!
