Unisa Application Dates 2024 is out for the academic year. Here are further details.
The University of South Africa (Unisa) is an open-distance e-learning university that allows students to pursue their studies by using online resources and study materials provided by Unisa themself.
Unisa offers a combination of career-orientated courses usually associated with a university of technology, combined with general formative academic programs typically linked to a traditional university.
This university offers many certificates, degrees, and diplomas at the bachelor, master, and doctoral levels.
The university has stated that everyone who plans to start a new qualification must apply for admission, this includes:
- first-time Unisa applicants
- Unisa students changing to a new qualification and/or specialization
- applicants who previously applied for admission and were not offered a space or who were offered a space accepted the offer and did not register
- students completing a higher certificate or any other program and who wish to continue with further undergraduate studies
Students should be aware that applications will have to be done online and they are urged to apply as soon as applications open, as spaces fill fast.
Open Distance e-learning means that learning will take place where the student and the university are physically distanced and the student will connect with the university mostly via the internet from a laptop, tablet, or another device.
However, students are still provided with many support services even though they are distanced, through libraries, tutorial support, counseling, and other online tools.
Students may study full-time or part-time which allows them to work while studying, they also get to structure their own schedule in order to complete each course they are registered for.
