unisa protest


Unisa's SRC is threatening to take Unisa to court over the delay in accepting and enrolling new students. After months of waiting, Unisa has reportedly still not made any effort to enroll the 20 000 students they originally intended to not accept.


Students from Unisa, along with University of Pretoria students, are calling for the academic year to be suspended if they're not allowed to register. They have also said that they'll be elevating their protests.


Unisa students talk of planned nationwide shutdown as management refuses to meet their demands. Students from universities across the country have now joined the protest for free education. 


The EFF Student Command has now taken Unisa and the Minister of Higher Education to court following their decision to cut down the number of first-time entering students accepted into Unisa for 2021 by 20 000. This has contributed to #BladeMustFall trending on social media. 


Employees of UNISA marched in order to have their grievances on the dissatisfaction of the University's administration heard. Workers have said that the University is exploiting them and that they did not expect this from an institution as large as UNISA.


Unisa is now giving away data to students and you don't have to do much to get it! Students only have until 17 October 2020 so hurry up before it's too late and you miss your chance to get free data!


Unisa has opened offices and campuses for students to access. However, a booking is required to visit a campus or office and without a booking, access will be denied. Here's where to find the Booking App and how to use it.


Now that the country is moving to Level 1 of lockdown, institutions and students are now expecting for all of the student body to be allowed back at campuses. Unisa has now released measures they will be taking as a distance learning institution. This includes how they will be reopening campuses and offices and also which campuses are set to reopen.


Unisa students have started engaging in protests to demand management reopens all Unisa campuses. This comes after the University announced that their exams will permanently be done online.
