Unisa is the largest open distance learning institution in Africa and the longest standing dedicated distance education university in the world. They enrol nearly one-third of all South African students.
Founded in 1873 as the University of the Cape of Good Hope, the institution became the first public university in the world to teach exclusively by means of distance education in 1946. Throughout the years, Unisa was perhaps the only university in South Africa to have provided all people with access to education, irrespective of race, colour or creed. This vibrant past is mirrored in our rich history, more particularly our massive and impressive database of alumni, some of whom are to be found in the most senior levels of society across the world.
They offer an unparalleled range of study choices, ranging from short courses and certificate programmes to three-and four-year degrees and diplomas, close to 400 000 current students. As one of the leading research institutions on the continent, their research efforts have won them numerous awards, recognitions and honours.
