How to Study for Free at UNISA

  • On 16 December 2017, the then President, Jacob Zuma, announced that poor and working class students will get free higher education.
  • This announcement was followed by the announcement of UNISA on the 24th of December 2017, that students will be able to Study for Free at UNISA from 2018.  UNISA further more explained how this will work for students who want to Study For Free at UNISA from 2018 and onwards.

Unisa Registration Deadline Extended

The University of South Africa (Unisa) has extended its registration deadline for undergraduate programmes to Thursday, January 31, 2019.

This will allow the institution to continue making offers, based on the availability of space, to thousands of student hopefuls.

While the process has frustrated many students, the university said it was doing all it could to ensure that those who had applied were offered places.

“We are now processing all those [new] applications, and we have now extended the deadline to Thursday the 31st. What is going to happen between now and then is that offers will be made to students within the context of the space available,” Unisa spokesperson Martin Ramotshela said. 

Ramotshela said the university initially targeted 380 000 enrolments for the 2019 academic plan, but received more than 500 000 applications. 

“We will make offers as we process them (the applications). In fact, we are very close to the number. We make offers as we process the applications and when we reach the target, we close. No one is on a waiting list, you are just an applicant,” he said. 

Ramotshela urged students to register as soon as possible and not to wait for the deadline.

He added that the academic programme for the year, including the submission of assignments and examinations, remained unchanged.

What is an Online Degree

What is an Online Degree

In this article we’ll look at how online degrees work, what you should look for if you are pursuing a degree via the online option, and what employers think of online degrees.

As more and more people get online degrees and use them in the workforce, HR managers and hiring managers will begin to feel more secure about the quality of education these people have. If the studies that were done by Thomas L. Russell and John Losak — showing the quality of online education to be as good as or better than that of traditional education — hold up on a larger scale, then the future of getting jobs and advancements based on online degrees will be bright.

Until then, choose schools carefully, and check for accreditation and strong programs. When you’ve completed the degree, go to job interviews armed with information to counter any questions about the quality or validity of your degree. Make sure the interviewer knows how you achieved the degree, how you worked it into a busy schedule, how you overcame any obstacles. It will show a self-motivation and discipline that may be just the qualities the company is looking for.

With a computer, an Internet connection and a little self-discipline, you can earn a degree from home, work, or anywhere else for that matter. Online degree programs follow much the same routines as traditional learning, with a few twists. There are lectures, but they won’t be in person. There are assignments, but you won’t hand them to your instructor. There are exams, but you won’t be able to look at your neighbor’s paper. There may be a set time that “class” begins, but you don’t have to be there then. In most situations, you are free to “go to class” when it fits your schedule. If you get a phone call during class, you don’t have to miss anything. If you get sick, you don’t have to ask for someone’s notes, you just visit the lecture later.

You’ll communicate with your instructor by e-mail, chat rooms, bulletin boards, and instant messaging. Your classroom will live in a special software program that uses text chat and bulletin boards, as well as streaming audio or recorded lectures. You may be put into a virtual workgroup with other students and be required to solve a problem. You may have to work through interactive puzzles and quizzes. Contrary to popular belief, you will have contact with other students and the instructor.

How are students evaluated?

Earning a degree should mean just that — earning it. If students aren’t assessed properly and degrees are handed out with little or no verification that any knowledge has been transferred from the instructor to the student, then how can the program be rated? Students, particularly adult students, learn more by doing than by simply listening. For this reason, it is important to ensure that part of the program involves applying what has been learned.

Unisa Stike Ends as the Parties find Common Grounds

Unisa Stike Ends as the Parties find Common Grounds

 

The University of South Africa (Unisa) and its student representative council (SRC) reached an agreement on Saturday that will see the student strike called off with immediate effect and operations at the university resuming by Monday, the university said.

 

“The agreement came as a result of the breakthrough made by the parties during negotiations within the university; as well as constructive engagement by the parties with the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET; focusing on the registration challenges at Unisa, which included accreditation, enrolment planning, provision of laptops and other matters,” Unisa said in a statement.

 

Additional 25,000 spaces for students who had applied

 

“As Unisa, we welcome this agreement and we are pleased that the operations of the university will return to normal; and that thousands of our people who aspire to acquire an education and better their lives; will be afforded the opportunity access Unisa – a university that plays a leading role in the higher education sector in the country and on the continent. This breakthrough also demonstrates how crucial dialogue is in efforts to find solutions. Notwithstanding this agreement, we still urge students to register online unless it is absolutely necessary to visit a Unisa Service Centre,” said Unisa principal and vice chancellor Professor Mandla Makhanya.

 

The high court in Pretoria on Friday granted the university an interdict against students who had been protesting since Monday.

In terms of the agreement reached on Saturday, Unisa said it had agreed to consider an additional 25,000 spaces for students who had applied for the first semester of 2019 and who qualified.

In response to a demand by students that the NSFAS accord all benefits to Unisa beneficiaries, the university said that plans were in place to engage with NSFAS on the matter.
