The University of South Africa (Unisa) recently announced that students should be on alert for fake messages circulating on social media platforms.

The university has confirmed through their communication that a post which has been circulating is nothing but fake news.

The message promises an automatic admission for higher certificates students who completed higher certificates as it said:

Dear student, if you have completed your higher certificate and didn't get the offer, also if you were rejected or you forgot to apply for a degree, please download the form.

Luyanda Shibe, one of Unisa’s Higher Certificate students, said on social media that she understands that completing a Higher Certificate doesn’t guarantee an automatic admission, rather she pleads with the university to release their completion of qualification because as the students they want to increase their chances of being offered space at a higher education institution.

An employees staff email, Judith Gumbi who works at the New Castle Unisa regional office, was used to blind the students.

The university urges students to make use of the Unisa official communication platforms for Unisa's official announcements.
