Unisa has released a statement on the effect Covid-19 has on student’s receiving their study materials.
After President Cyril Ramaphosa announced that South Africa would be undergoing a 21 day nation lockdown, may changes have been enforced.
Unisa has been one of many institutions who has had their operations be impacted by the national lockdown. They have released a statement involving the release of study material to their students that read as follows:
Due to the lockdown, Unisa will not distribute study material with effect from 27 March 2020 until the lockdown is lifted.
If you have not received your hard copy study material, please go to myUnisa and download it as soon as possible to prepare for future assessments.
Downloading study material from myUnisa is easy to do. Just follow these steps:
- Go to https://my.unisa.ac.za and login with your student number and password. If you haven’t yet activated your myUnisa account and claimed your myLife e-mail account, click on “Claim Unisa login” on the homepage of myUnisa and follow the instructions.
