Applications for selected Hons and Postgraduate Diplomas at Unisa are now open and you have until 4 February to submit your application.
This applies to first-time applicants as well as returning students who have decided to change to a new qualification and applicants in their final year of an undergraduate qualification who wish to continue with postgraduate studies. All applications must be submitted online and no self-help stations will be available for applications at the regional offices.
Additionally, it is well worth noting that Unisa will assess your application according to the academic admission requirements of your chosen qualification and the final mark obtained for your major subjects at the third-year undergraduate level.
Here’s how the application process works
You may apply for a maximum of two qualifications, ranked in order of preference (although you may only register for one should both of your applications be successful). Unisa will inform you of the outcome of your application.
First-time applicants to Unisa are required to complete the First-Year Experience MOOC (FYE massive open online course). Failure to do so means that you will not be able to accept Unisa's offer.
Unisa also requires applicants to accept or decline Unisa's offer within the prescribed period of time. Bear in mind that If you accept an offer, the other application for admission/offer will automatically fall away.
If you accept Unisa's offer for the 2022 academic year, you may only register for the qualification and specialisation for which you received an offer.
You may also only register for the 2022 academic year. Should you decide not to register for the 2022 academic year for any reason, you will need to apply for admission during the next application period.
