Last Chance To Register For Unisa Short Courses


The University of South Africa’s (Unisa) short courses are curated to update or enhance a student's skills and knowledge in a specific field of study. Students interested in registering for the 2023 academic year are encouraged to do so to avoid missing the looming deadline.



Unisa is an open distance e-learning university, which allows students to pursue their studies by using online resources and study materials provided by the institution. 

Today is the last chance for prospective students wanting to start a new Short Learning Programmes SLP at Unisa. All must apply for admission.

Applications for the (SLP) at Unisa opened as early as 4 November 2022 and are set to close today, 28 February 2023.

This includes applications for first-time applicants, Unisa students changing to a new SLP and applicants who previously applied for admission and were not offered placement.

Prospective students would be happy to know that there are no application fees payable when applying for any of the SLP at Unisa.

Candidates starting a new qualification must upload the following required supporting documents:

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

If an individual’s application is successful, Unisa will verify and capture the documents submitted and do a temporary registration on their behalf.

However, 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 give your place to another applicant.

When submitting the applications, candidates are reminded to make sure they provide a valid email address and working cell phone number as those are the institutions key methods of communication.
