UNISA Application important information
I know I have written about these issues many times before, but it bears saying every time. Please read through this very carefully so that you understand the difference between application and registration.
First you have to apply to study at UNISA.
Remember there is no guarantee you will get a place. Your application gets scored on a number of issues, including your marks, the number of places available in the qualification you want to study as well as things like race, gender and socio-economic background.
UNISA aims to level the playing field in terms of socio-economic factors without losing out on the quality of the education offered.
Remember – once you apply and are accepted you need to register your subjects for the following term.
Once UNISA has let you know you have been accepted and you have your student number you need to register your subjects for the following term.
Registration usually takes place 2 or 3 months after applications.
If you don’t register in the following term your application will automatically be removed and you will have to apply all over again if you wish to continue.
You will also be automatically excluded if you do not pay your application fee, so be sure you know what to pay, to whom and by what date. This is a problem many potential students fall foul of, so be sure you know this in detail and set reminders for yourself about it.
Good Luck with your UNISA application!
