Unisa Online Application Closes Today

Unisa 2019 Second Semester Applications Open

Applications for admission to selected undergraduate qualifications for semester 2 of the 2019 academic year will be open from 6 – 13 May 2019.

Unisa is known as a provider of fair and equitable access to higher education opportunities. Flowing from its social responsibility to address past inequalities, Unisa has an application and selection process that effectively addresses historical imbalances without sacrificing quality standards.

This process promotes focused attention towards improved student support, and the alignment of our new student intake with the available academic capacity and required infrastructure to maximise all students’ chances of success.

What does the selection process entail?
At the heart of the selection process is a calculation of your individual points score, which takes into account your final Grade 12 marks and other key factors such as the school you attended, and your gender, socio-economic group, race, and so on.
Before submitting an application, please check whether you meet the statutory and college specific admission requirements for your chosen qualification(s).
It is important to note that you will not automatically be accepted to study through Unisa in semester 2 of 2019. Students will be accommodated on the basis of the number of places available for each qualification.

The application process
You may apply for a maximum of two qualifications, ranked in order of preference (although you may only register for one should both of your qualifications be successful).
Unisa will inform you of the outcome of your application. If successful, Unisa will indicate for which qualification you have been accepted and will offer you a space for the period for which you have applied (ie semester 2).
You must accept or decline Unisa’s offer within the prescribed period of time.
If you accept Unisa’s offer, you must register for the period for which you have been granted admission (ie semester 2). Should you not register for the relevant semester of study, you will need to re-apply for admission during the next application period.

Who must apply?
Everyone wanting to start a new qualification must apply for admission. This includes first-time Unisa applicants and Unisa students changing to a new qualification.
Everyone completing a Higher Certificate or Alternative Pathway / Extended Programme must apply for admission to the follow-on qualification.
You must re-apply for admission if you previously applied for admission and received feedback, but did not register for any reason.
Everyone planning to enrol for classes at a Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) college under the Unisa-TVET agreement must apply for admission.
