Students who wish to enter a study programme at Unisa need to submit their application between 20 August and 27 September for the 2020 academic year.

Making the decision to pursue a higher education is always a positive step forward. However, choosing the best course and following the application process can be complicated and daunting. Here are the steps to submitting your application if you are planning to study through Unisa

Unisa has opened mid-year applications for its Short Learning Programmes (SLPs).

Unisa is well known for its distance and online learning courses, but it is by no means the only institution that offers flexible study options in South Africa.

The Department of Higher Education and Training has informed the Skills Portal that they have withdrawn the press release they issued on Friday the 8th September claiming that a bogus university was launching in Johannesburg. 

Earlier this week we published an opinion piece titled "Crisis Point: Tertiary Education is Broken", about some of the problems facing universities in South Africa.

Yesterday (25 April 2017), I received an email from Sinenhlanhla Manana, who shared their story. See it below:

Tertiary education is broken. Universities as they currently exist and function cannot last much longer and nor should they. The dropout rate in South Africa's universities is high, while our graduation rate is low, far lower than the "ideal" rate of 25% set in the National Plan for Higher Education (Department of Education, 2001). This suggests that our tertiary education system is in crisis and needs a dramatic overhaul if it is to help shape the future of South Africa.

Thinking of studying at Unisa? Now is the time to apply for the academic programme of your choice.

Starting university can be quite intimidating. Here are some tips to help you get the most out of your first year on campus.

Caught in the gap between the rich and poor, the missing middle faces a unique set of challenges when applying for university funding.

Twelve Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges in have been
selected to offer Unisa qualifications on their college campuses under the authority of
Unisa.

The changes to the application process at Unisa will affect both new and existing students. Applicants will only be permitted to apply online via the Student Portal and those who do not follow the new process will be barred from registering.
