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.
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.
Students with disabilities are encouraged to apply to study at Unisa. The university offers a range of services tailored to make the learning experience as pleasant as possible.
Unisa respects the right that students have to not disclose the nature of their disability. However, students could miss out on a range of services available to them if they do not make the university aware of how the disability affects their learning experience.
