University of Namibia

The University of Namibia (UNAM) is the largest and leading National institution of higher education in the country. It is a diverse institution with a student population from 41 countries and from all continents. Although a relatively young university, it has grown to support a student population of over 30,144 this year.

Welcome to the University of Namibia, more popularly known as UNAM. We are a young dynamic University established in 1992. We have twelve (12) campuses and over 19 000 students from different continents. Despite our brief existence, we have risen to be amongst the leading institutions of higher learning on the continent.

We offer an array of internationally benchmarked courses that meet contemporary and future needs of society. There are a variety of courses on offer for most career objectives, but our flagship programmes are; Medicine, Engineering, Pharmacy and Veterinary Science. I encourage you to visit our list of academic courses under Apply to UNAM/ Qualifications for a comprehensive view of all our other equally exciting programmes.

At UNAM we strongly believe that everyone is capable of great works. Personally, I have never met anyone who has failed to demonstrate even the slightest desire to be remarkable, the nature of humanity is genius itself. This is perhaps why the human race has advanced the furthest in the animal kingdom. I know that at times we may feel that we fall short of greatness, but what you may lack in ability, we believe that we can help you achieve through will. We believe in the human spirit, we believe in you!

If you ever take the time to cross our threshold and choose to enroll at any of our campuses, you will meet with mind boggling discoveries that will set your life on a trajectory of unimaginable depth. You will be transformed in your thinking and will be given a chance to apply new knowledge. I cannot say that it will be easy, but we will give you our best. Our philosophy is to create industry leaders and entrepreneurs. We don’t merely train our students to be employees. No matter your condition, we encourage you to take this journey with us because we are confident that you will can do it.
