The University of South Africa (UNISA) will re-open its applications for the 2018 academic year for first-time entering undergraduate students.
Universities and colleges across the country are scrambling to deal with the large number of walk-in applicants, following the confusion surrounding free education.
Following communication from Universities SA (USAf) on 10 January 2018 regarding how universities should manage walk-in students during the 2018 registration period, the University of South Africa has made the following decisions:
- Unisa will re-open applications for the 2018 academic year for first-time entering undergraduate students who have not previously applied for admission to the 2018 academic year.
- First-time entering undergraduate students may apply via the Unisa application website or via a self-help station at Unisa’s Service Centres by 19 January 2018.
- Unisa will only process new applications received by the application deadline of 19 January 2018. Offers will then be made to qualifying applicants on a first come, first served basis, subject to the number of places still available for the 2018 academic year.
Unisa will open undergraduate applications for semester 2 of the 2018 academic year in April 2018.
