The SCSU study 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 and antelope. 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.
As a result of the cooperation between SCSU and NMMU, three different study abroad programs have been created to allow the maximum number of students the chance to study abroad in South Africa.
