UNISA is South Africa's most popular university as it's flexible distance learning options mean that it caters for young full-time students as well as older people who want to study while they are working.
Although their main application period closed a few weeks back UNISA has now announced that they have changed their application process to a system of 'Open Applications'.
This new UNISA Open Applications system means that they will accept applications throughout the year. Applicants will still have to have the necessary admission requirements and certain courses will still be too full to admit students at certain times.
Although there is no official closing date for applications there may be a period when a particular course is full - or for a couple of weeks before the start of registration - when applications will not be taken.
