As a Medical Education student at Windhoek Medical University, I welcome you for joining one of the very best providers of modern and specialised university in tertiary education in the Namibia and the SADC region. Our Degrees, National Diplomas as well as Certificates are validated by Girne American University (GAU) in Cyprus, American University of Moldova (AUM) and Kaduna State University (KSU) in Nigeria.

As a private University, we will be an Ofsted ‘outstanding’ University with a Teaching Excellence Framework vision; a national quality kitemark for Medical Education. You will study in our modern, dedicated Medical Education and Skills Centres with access to excellent technology and spacious buildings. Small but inviting environment for learning.

Toward these end and in respect for diversity at WMU, the following guidelines should be followed:

  • WMU recognizes that each faculty and instructional team member will express his or her opinions and philosophies freely without censorship.
  • Concurrently, it is important that faculty and instructional team members realize their responsibility to the university to make their students understand that their expression does not represent the opinions of WMU.
  • The thorough discussion of topics from diverse perspectives within the faculty and instructional team members’ subject areas is encouraged. However, the discussion of controversial subject matter outside of each faculty and instructional team member’s area of expertise is strongly discouraged within courses.
  • Noting that debate is at the heart of academic freedom, faculty and instructional team members have a particular obligation to promote conditions of free inquiry and to further public understanding of academic freedom.
  • WMU expects its faculty and instructional team members to maintain University high standards of professional conduct in all communications with students at all times.
