The University of South Africa (Unisa) has announced that the application process for Short Learning Programmes (SLP) will close on 31 March 2023. Interested individuals have been advised register as soon as possible to avoid missing the deadline.
According to Unisa, the institution's SLPs are intended to update or broaden students’ skills and knowledge in a specific area by covering fundamental key concepts.
The SLPs are located within various academic departments of Unisa's colleges and are offered and administered by the Centre for Lifelong Learning.
It's important to note that prospective students are required to submit their SLP applications online and there is no application fee payable when applying for Unisa short courses.
Applicants wanting to start a new Short Learning Programme must apply for admission. This includes:
- First-time Unisa applicants.
- Unisa students changing to a new Short Learning Programme.
- Applicants who previously applied for admission and were not offered a space.
Unisa will inform candidates on the outcome of their applicationfor semester courses and year programmes soon after registration closes.
Students will then be required to accept or decline the offer within the prescribed period of time indicated in the offer letter.
If they neglect to accept Unisa's offer within the prescribed period of time, Unisa will withdraw the offer and give the place to another applicant.
To register for any of the short courses during the 2023 academic year students can visit the Unisa centre for lifelong learning.
