What Does it mean to Apply To UNISA?

  • This is very different from UNISA registration, which you can only be done once you have been accepted to study at UNISA.
  • We have a great UNISA application tutorial for you to follow if you are applying now.

How Do I Apply At UNISA?

 

  1. Choose your qualification

  • Choose a Qualification by looking through the UNISA brochure and make sure you meet the admission requirements.
  • It is important to remember the UNISA requires you to do all your own research and decide which qualification suites your chosen career, and whether ODL (open distance learning) is right for you.

 

  1. Fill In The Form

  • You must apply for admission to UNISA by filling and submitting the admission form. You can either fill in the form online or at a regional office.
  • Remember to fill in your top two choices, in order of preference.  If you are accepted on both programmes you may only choose one qualification to study.

 

  1. Submit Documents

  • Please be very sure you have every document, and they are submitted exactly as requested by UNISA.  If they are not exactly as specified, or not submitted, you will be automatically rejected regardless of your merits or circumstances.

 

You need scanned copies of the following documents handy to submit online together with your application form:

 

  • Certified copy of your school qualifications (eg Senior Certificate)
  • Certified copy of your official tertiary academic record(s) (if applicable) (please note that internet copies will not be accepted)
  • Certified copy of your ID document (RSA students) or passport (international students)
  • Certified copy of your marriage certificate (if applicable) or divorce decree (if applicable)
  • Certified sworn translations of documents if they are not in English or Afrikaans
  • DSAR04 form and supporting documents if you are applying for exemptions

 

Remember that these all have to be given in electronic format, and UNISA does not supply any copying or scanning devices for you.

You also need to scan them in the right format, ensuring that the file is no bigger than 2MB, all documents are in black and white, and are saved either as a PDF, TIF or DOC.  No other file extensions will be accepted.

  • Just a note of caution. UNISA had over 400,000 students apply to study with them in 2018.  That was before Free Education was promised.  We believe that the next application period in early 2019 is going to be the biggest on record in UNISA history.

 

We advise you the following:

  1. Apply early.
  2. Make sure you have all your documentation ready well before the time.  Start NOW – then by the time applications open all you have to do is load them on the UNISA website.
  3. Follow EVERY STEP in our UNISA application tutorial.  Don’t miss out ANYTHING.  You will be automatically disqualified and will miss the opportunity of a lifetime.
