Unisa Under Scrutiny For Study Material & Registration Delays
Even before the 2021 academic year kicked off, Unisa was presented with multiple issues. Now, students have complained that they have not received their study material and that their registration has not been finalised even though the academic year has started.
Some Unisa students are still awaiting their study material as delays in the delivery of these materials are seen.
Unisa's Vice-Chancellor and Principal, Prof. Puleng Lenkabula said:
The University has always been committed to accessing students not being an obstacle to black students not accessing education but also from other communities.
There are however still a mountain of issues when it comes to the 2021 academic year at Unisa.
Students have complained that the University does not answer their phones when students are calling for assistance as well.
Unisa's student representative council (SRC) has now called for the University to re-open despatch so that students can collect their study material on campus.
The SRC continued to say:
The University must be able to at least re-open despatch for students who are unable to access their study material so that they at least have an option to fetch their study material because the academic year has started.
Some students are registered and have paid their registration fees a month ago but have still not received them.
Tshepo Mahlobogoane from the Black Lawyers Association Student Chapter said, "Students are unhappy about how the University is operating".
There are also students waiting for their registration to be activated.
Unisa has encouraged students to download their study material while they wait for their printed study material to be delivered. Even if your registration has not been finalised, you can still get your study material.
