First year International students attend NUST orientation

The Department of International Relations (DIR) at NUST recently held an orientation session for first-year international students. The students came from different countries such as Finland, Zimbabwe, Cameroon, Democratic Republic of Congo, Botswana, Angola, Malawi, and South

The team from DIR pictured with the international students and the Student Representative Council.The International Student Orientation focused on matters relating to immigration and general safety in Windhoek, amongst others. “Having international students at NUST is part of the institution’s internationalisation home agenda. International students bring with them different views and cultural experience that help domestic students and academics alike, to examine their own opinions and world view,” Acting Director of International Relations, Theodora Nandjaa-Mweuta, stated.

Superintendent Cillie Kapolo, from the Windhoek City Police, educated students about safety in the city. “Crimes occur when the victim creates an opportunity, hence the need for you to always be responsible for your safety and security by being conscious of your surroundings,” she cautioned.

Sakeus Kadhikwa from The Ministry of Home Affairs and Immigration spoke about the importance of complying with the Immigration laws, and how studying without a student permit in a foreign country is a prosecutable criminal offense.

The orientation came to an end where historical sites in and around Windhoek were visited for the students to familiarise themselves with the local environment.
