The cost of studying at Unisa depends on the qualification and modules chosen, but is generally lower than other higher education institutions. Studying is a significant investment, either way. The cost varies according to the qualification and the number of modules chosen.
Unisa offers a range of undergraduate courses and qualifications in seven major fields of study. These courses lead to qualifications like higher certificates, advanced certificates, diplomas, advanced diplomas and bachelor's degrees.
Unisa will be closing its self-help registration facilities, as registration will be done fully online in 2021. This comes after the recent second wave of Covid-19, which has seen South Africa's positive cases spiking beyond the first peak of infections.
