It’s important to note that there is no application fee when applying for Unisa short courses.

Students may apply for admission to a maximum of two SLP and rank them in the order of preference. However, they will only be able to enrol in one of their choices.

Unisa will inform applicants of the outcome of their application by the end of January 2023 for semester courses and by the end of February 2023 for year programmes.

The university will also indicate which programme the applicant has been accepted for, and also the period for which they were accepted (i.e. semester 1 or semester 2).

All applicants starting a new qualification must upload all the required supporting documents:

  • Copy of school qualifications (Matric certificate )
  • Copy of tertiary academic record (if applicable)
  • Copy of a valid ID document (South African students)
  • Copy of ID/Passport (International students)
  • Copy of Marriage certificate or divorce decree (if applicable)
  • Any additional documents as may be required for a specific Short Learning Programme

If your application is successful, Unisa will verify and capture the documents you have submitted and do a temporary registration on your behalf.

Applicants have a limited amount of time to accept the placement offers from Unisa. The university will inform the applicant of this prescribed period in an offer letter. If students do not accept Unisa’s offer within the prescribed period of time, the university will withdraw the offer and your place will be given to another applicant.

Applicants must also ensure they have a valid email address and a working cell phone number, as Unisa will use these channels to communicate with applicants. Make sure to only provide one working email address within their applications.
