Unisa’s applications to study at the University in 2022 will open on 1 September and will close on 15 December. Students should be aware that applications will be taking online and they are urged to apply as soon as it opens. 

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. 

Unisa students are also able to receive financial aid through a bursary from the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS), if they meet the criteria. NSFAS applications will open in August/September.

The NSFAS bursary covers more than just tuition. They also pay registration fees and provide various allowances for accommodation, learning material, living and transport.
