The University of South Africa (Unisa) just closed their applications for anyone wanting to study there during the 2024 academic year. However, some might not have got their chance and are wondering whether there will be Unisa late applications for 2024.


Unisa opened their 2024 applications on 1 September and closed the 2024 application period on 14 October. It's often found that individuals did not apply in time and would benefit from a Unisa late applications period.

This application period was for anyone wanting to study undergraduate qualifications such as Higher Certificate programmes, Advanced Certificate programmes, Diploma programmes, Advanced Diploma programmes and Degree programmes. Applications for Honours Degrees And Postgraduate Diplomas also came to an end on 14 October.

Will There Be Unisa Late Applications For 2024?

Unisa has not yet said whether there will be a late application period. Usually, no applications submitted late would be considered but should they provide a late applications opportunity, you would be able to apply.

The University has in previous years offered a late applications period but this is dependent on whether there are still space available in programmes.

They have called on applicants to ensure their applications are complete as incomplete applications will not be processed by the institution. A complete application includes paying the application fee and uploading all the supporting documents.

2024 Unisa applications for Master's and Doctoral degrees are however still open and will close on 31 January 2024.
