UNAM Tertiary Education: A Synopsis
The University of Namibia (UNAM) consists of 12 Campuses and seven Regional Centres country wide. This outreach makes UNAM a truly community based institution. Our philosophy is to create industry leaders and entrepreneurs. We don’t merely train employees.
A growing number of UNAM Alumni who went through intensive capacity building, are more and more being recommended for promotion to associate or full professorship by their international academic peers around the globe.
The university has forged many International Relations, Partnerships and Collaborations over the years. The University of Namibia, furthermore, has several international agreements with universities around the world, like, Finland UK, Japan, China, South Africa, India Kenya and various others.
In terms of nutrition, the University of Namibia has made livelihood altering strides. The Ogongo Campus and Kalimbeza Rice Projects are but some of many successful executions of extension services by the University of Namibia.

Research & Development
Collaborative research is the hallmark of institutions of higher learning in the modern world. UNAM is part of the global research network to address issues of national importance such as malaria elimination in Namibia by 2020.
UNAM continues to benchmark itself with world-class research laboratories training young upcoming researchers on techniques for discovery of new medicinal treatments for malaria and cancer.
Research will also continue towards domesticating the marama bean, develop products from medicinal mushrooms, while our Faculty of Agriculture and Natural Resources works towards increasing rice production, grow lucerne to support the livestock industry and introduce artificial insemination of chickens and cattle.
Through its core business of teaching, research, innovation and community service, UNAM remains a major contributor to the economic, social and cultural development of the country.
