Unisa Extends Deadline For All Assignments

Unisa has announced that they'll be extending the deadline for all assignments. Students are encouraged to complete their assignment as soon as possible and not wait for the last minute, which we all have been guilty of.


Fortunately for Unisa students, the University has now announced that they'll be extending the deadline for all assignments due to registration for the 2021 academic year being extended.

Assignments are now due on 12 May.

In a statement released by Unisa, they stated:

Due to the extended registration date, the university will allow the submission of all assignments until 12 May 2021 where the due dates of such assignments are before 12 May 2021. 

Unisa also made it clear that the due dates of assignments scheduled later than 12 May are not affected by this extension.

It's important to note that this extension is not for assignments for modules offered by the School of Business Leadership (SBL).

Although we have extended the due date for assignment submission, we urge all students who are able, to submit their assignments as soon as possible to reach the university before 12 May 2021.

Unisa 2021 Academic Year

Due to being massively impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, the University then had to make changes to the 2021 academic year.

If students saw changes being made to the assignments and assessments for the modules for which they are registered for, students will find this information in tutorial letter TL001 on the module site on myUnisa

Unisa has reassured students that, "We will continue to keep you informed of any further adjustments to the academic arrangements should this become necessary."

First time entering students are encouraged to register for the "first year experience" to get comfortable with Unisa processes.

The University also gave a pat on the back to students who successfully completed the 2020 academic year even with all the disruptions higher education saw in 2020.

Unisa Study Material

If students have not yet received their study materials, Unisa urges them to access them online. Even if your registration has not been finalised, you can still get your study material.

Unisa suggests that you download your study material to a PC / laptop / tablet and not to a phone.

Students can also use myUnisa to engage online with fellow students and lecturers and start the learning process.
