The University of South Africa, more commonly known as Unisa, is an open distance e-learning university which enables students to pursue their studies using online resources and study materials provided by the university themself.
Unisa will be hosting a virtual open day on 18 September 2021, to inform students of all the qualifications, degrees and programmes that they offer.

Unisa offers a combination of career-orientated courses which are usually associated with a university of technology, combined with general formative academic programmes typically linked to a traditional university.
The University offers many certificates, degrees and diplomas at the bachelor, master and doctoral levels.
The Open Distance e-learning which Unisa makes use of, means that learning will take place where the student and the university are physically distanced and the student will connect with the university mostly via the internet from a laptop, tablet or other device.
At Unisa the student will be provided with study material which consists of written content via textbooks or online via myUnisa. Unisa provides access to computers and internet at some of their facilities but students should have their own computer and access to the internet.
The university still provides many support services for students even though they are distanced, through libraries, tutorial support, counselling and other online tools.
Students may study full-time or part-time which allows them to work while studying, they also get to structure their own schedule in order to complete each course they are registered for.
Applications for undergraduate qualifications at Unisa for the 2022 academic year will run from 11 August to 15 October 2021.
Students should be aware that all applications will be taking place online and they are urged to apply as soon as possible.
Unisa students are also able to receive financial aid via a bursary such as from the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS), if they meet the criteria.
This bursary will cover tuition, registration fees and various allowances for accommodation, learning material, living and transport.
