UNISA

Unisa made the sudden decision to only have one semester in 2021 instead of two after Minister Blade Nzimande made an announcement. Which caused Unisa students to petition against this decision.

Unisa has assured students that they will be receiving their completion letters soon. Unisa has also recently made some announcements about their exams, assignments and registrations.

Unisa's 2021 academic year will commence in March 2021 and they therefore had to make some changes to ensure that all students are able to successfully complete the 2021 academic year. This included declaring that there will only be one examination period for 2021.

Unisa has made some changes to the registration period for 2021 as the University now announced that there will only be one for 2021. Registration season at Unisa commenced on 5 January.

It is one of the fastest and effective ways of getting students into the job market. It aims to provide students with the basic academic skills, knowledge and technical abilities that are required for a specific career field.
