Unisa Higher Certificates for 2020

UNISA Higher Certificate qualifications are in high demand, especially for students who did not qualify with a Bachelors’s Degree pass in Matric. Studying for a degree at university after school is usually a top priority for students wanting to further their education. However, it’s not always possible due to not meeting the admission requirements of certain qualifications.

Therefore many students opt to do a bridging course to improve their marks and chances of doing an upgraded higher qualification. This is where the Higher Certificate qualifications offered by UNISA come into play.

Why Should I Consider Doing A UNISA Higher Certificate?

Naturally, people are disappointed when they find out that they’re not able to do a degree and instead of having to do a lower qualification. It’s like, for example, craving for a Big Mac but you only have enough money for a small Cheeseburger. It’s simply not the same.

That does not mean that there’s no value in having the cheeseburger though. You’re still having that cheeseburger rather than going on an empty stomach. The same goes for studying a lower qualification. Just because it’s not what you were originally aiming for, that doesn’t mean that there isn’t any value to it.

Did you know though that students can use the UNISA Higher Certificate qualifications to apply for a higher qualification? Not to say that the National Senior Certificate (NSC) isn’t valuable, but wouldn’t you think that you stand a better chance of being accepted for the qualification of your choice if you already have a UNISA qualification in your chosen field behind you?

Here are a few pointers to consider while you’re thinking about whether to do a Higher Certificate qualification or not:

  • The higher certificate qualifications are seen as an introductory phase into the career path of your choice;
  • Higher certificates are more industry-orientated than other qualifications;
  • This will thus prepare students well when it comes to implementing the skills learned in the workforce;
  • Becoming a specialist in a certain area of expertise would result in a higher chance of applicants offered job opportunities than those without the required skills;

Important Facts about the Higher Certificate at UNISA

There are a number of factors students need to consider before applying for a higher certificate qualification at UNISA:

  • The minimum APS for all Higher Certificate qualifications is 15.
  • The maximum time to complete a Higher Certificate qualification is 3 years.
  • The NQF level of the Higher Certificates is Level 5
  • Each qualification consists of 10 modules, equalling 120 credits

Separately, additional requirements needed to qualify for a Higher Certificat includes:

  • Meeting a subminimum of 30% n the language of teaching and learning (NSC); or
  • Having at least an F symbol on HG or E symbol on SG in the language of teaching and learning (SC); or
  • A National Certificate (Vocational) (NCV) with at least 40% in the language of teaching and learning in terms of the NSC.

Some qualifications do require further additional mark requirements (Mathematics, Life Sciences, etc.). Requirements have to be met in order for students to qualify. In other words, it’s not only the APS that matters when it comes to qualification.

What Higher Certificate Courses Do Unisa Offer?

UNISA offers a variety of Higher Certificate qualifications that students can use to apply for a higher qualification. At the time of writing, UNISA offers 15 Higher Certificate courses in various subject fields:

When choosing what qualification to study, always remember that you have to choose a course that aligns with your chosen career choice. It wouldn’t make sense to study, for example, a Higher Certificate in Animal Welfare when you’ve decided to pursue a career in the Arts.

When Can I Apply for A Higher Certificate?

Students interested in applying to study for a Higher Certificate in the 2020 academic year can apply anytime during the year (read more here). In order to apply, students can either apply via Unisa’s application tool online or a hard copy submission. Successful applicants will then be able to register during the next registration period.

Please note that we are not UNISA. UNISA reserves the right to deny applicants even if they do meet the admission requirements. This would be mainly due to a qualification being oversubscribed. UNISA offers limited space to each qualification and there may be too many students applying for a single course.

    1. As stated in the article, you can study for a Higher Certificate in Education. One step further would be to study a BEd qualification. Find out what BEd qualifications are available here.

      1. Goodness Nelisiwe

        I want to study a higher certificate in education I want to know more as I was been rejected applying for diploma in office administrator and public administration

        1. You have to meet the requirements set by UNISA in order to have a chance of having your application approved. The article shows what’s needed to study for a Higher Certificate in Education.

          You can also read more about UNISA’s Education Undergraduate Qualifications here.

          1. Hi,my daughters points are 19..must she apply for a higher certificate in education for teaching and how long does it take and after that what is the next step.she has 50% for english.or law

          2. A Higher Certificate qualification is a year-long qualification. It’s possible for her to apply for a HC in Law or Education (as long as she meets the minimum admission requirements set by UNISA).

            Once she completes the qualification, then she will be able to apply for a higher qualification such as a BEd or a LLB.

            Here are the admission requirements for both abovementioned qualifications:

            A National Senior Certificate (NSC) with at least 30% in the language of teaching and learning

            or

            a Senior Certificate (SC) with at least an F symbol on HG or an E symbol on SG in the language of teaching and learning

            or

            a National Certificate (Vocational) Level 4 with an equivalent of at least 40% in the language of teaching and learning in terms of the NSC.

            If she qualified with a Diploma pass, she may want to take a look at the following article: UNISA Diploma Qualifications 2020

          3. After completing Higher Certificate in Criminal Justice, Can I pause Graduation then do Diploma?

          4. You won’t be able to attend graduation as graduation is only available to those who completed the following qualifications:

            1. A degree;
            2. A 3-Year diploma; or
            3. A Postgraduate Diploma.

            Furthermore, graduation ceremonies are suspended till further notice because of COVID-19. Once your qualification is confirmed 100%, you can apply for a Diploma or a Degree qualification in the same field of study. For example, a Bachelors in Criminology.

        2. Good day.

          If u matriculated with a diploma pass and did not meet the mathematics mark for a bachelor’s degree.

          Can a higher certificate in accounting bridge the gap between the diploma pass and a bachelor’s degree in accountancy.

          Thank you

          1. That is correct, yes. You can use a higher certificate to apply for a Bachelors degree, circumnavigating around the diploma route. Remember that if you passed with a diploma pass, you can apply for a diploma or a higher certificate qualification at Unisa.

            Make sure that the qualification of your choice has a Higher Certificate option as an admission requirement.

    2. Good morning, I have office administration ncv level 4 certificate and would like to study education with UniSA is it possible? Thanks

      1. Please take a look at the admission requirements of the particular Education qualification at UNISA whether you qualify or not.

        Read more on UNISA’s Education qualifications here.

  1. Hi I would Like to Study Bachelor of arts in Forensic science and Technology. But I have a Senior Certificate(SC) without endorsement.

    D in English HG
    29 years of age

    Does Unisa apply for Matriculation Exemption At the Matriculation Board for you on day of admission registration?

    1. Good day I would like to know if I can use my higher certificate to apply to another institution or is it just for unisa?

      1. 1.Can I finish a higher certificate courses before 3 years in order to apply for a diploma?
        2.Can i do a bridging course having a matric higher certificate?

        1. You have up to 3 years to finish a Higher Certificate qualification. Upon completion, you can apply for a diploma or degree of your choice (as long as it’s relevant to the higher certificate qualification).

          To answer your second question, the Higher Certificates offered by UNISA can be used as a bridging course (as long as you meet the APS and additional admission requirements).

  2. Hi, please advise…
    I only have a Gr 11 pass. I would like to enrol to study for a national diploma in safety management. I have been working in this field for 10+ years. Is it possible for me to apply for some sort of bridging course that I can enroll in or can I apply for the Higher Certificate?
    Any advice will be most appreciated.

    1. Unisa has this thing called the Recognition of Prior Learning.

      As per UNISA’s website, your experience could translate into subject credits within your qualification or direct access into a postgraduate qualification.
      During your lifetime, you will have acquired various skills, competencies and experiences. This learning – which may have taken place outside of formal education and training – is valuable, irrespective of where or when it was obtained. You may have acquired skills or knowledge from a combination of training conducted while at work, experience you gained in the workplace, short courses or from community work in a relevant field.

      RPL permits you to gain credits within formal certificate, diploma and degree qualifications offered by Unisa based on the level and extent of your knowledge. Your prior learning will be measured against specified prescribed learning outcomes.

      I hope you find this information useful.

  3. If I do a higher certificate to gain entry to a degree, could those points also be used if I say want to apply at another varsity ?

    1. Having a tertiary qualification can only be beneficial when applying at another university. However, I cannot say for certain whether you can use a HC obtained by UNISA to apply for a degree at, for example, UCT or Wits.

        1. You have to apply for a higher certificate that is aligned with the same college. For example, if you wanted to do a BCom in Business Management but don’t have the marks, then you would apply for a Higher Certificate that’s in the same field/college. In this case, you would apply for any HC from the College of EMS.

          The same would apply with a degree in psychology. Unfortunately I don’t know which HC qualification is aligned with Psychology degrees.

      1. Hi good day
        I have a question I’m currently studying for the higher certificate in accounting science. And in semester 2 2020 will i doing my last 4 modules. Can I still apply for a Accounting Science degree for next year 2021

        1. You should be able to apply for an Accounting Science degree, but you might have to wait a while because your final marks will have to be processed before your application is successful or not.

          Luckily the application period is open all year, so I would suggest that you wait until you receive all your marks and confirm that you’ve passed before applying for the Accounting Sciences degree.

  4. Hy..i have passed my matric with admission to diploma,with level 3 in English so i was asking if it possible to study diploma in policing with 21 aps,or should I apply for higher certificate in criminal justice and after should i apply for bachelor of police science

    1. This is the current admission requirements for a Diploma in Policing:

      APS: 18

      Additional Requirements:

      A National Senior Certificate (NSC) (Diploma endorsement) with at least 50% in the language of teaching and learning
      or
      a Senior Certificate (SC) with at least a D symbol on HG or a C symbol on SG in the language of teaching and learning
      or
      a Higher Certificate.

      You need to match these requirements in order to qualify to study it.

      For the Higher Certificate in Criminal Justice, you need the following:

      APS: 15

      Additional Requirements:
      A National Senior Certificate (NSC) with at least 30% in the language of teaching and learning
      or
      a Senior Certificate (SC) with at least an F symbol on HG or an E symbol on SG in the language of teaching and learning
      or
      a National Certificate (Vocational) Level 4 with an equivalent of at least 40% in the language of teaching and learning in terms of the NSC.

        1. Which higher certificates that can be related to transport and logistics ,I want to do bachelor degree in logistics but I want to do a bridging course because I don’t meet the mathematical literacy requirements

          1. Your best bet would be to go for the Higher Certificate in Economic and Management Sciences. The degree you seek falls under UNISA’s EMS college, plus the HC’s subjects are similar to your chosen degree’s first year subjects.

            Just to be absolutely sure, you should visit your nearest UNISA campus and speak to a student advisor.

    1. UNISA’s Higher Certificates can be used as a bridging course of sorts. It takes one year to complete, with a maximum amount of three years to complete the qualification.

    1. It depends on what career path you want to follow. Remember that the Higher Certificate has to be relevant to the degree that you want to choose at a later stage.

  5. Nelisiwe khambule

    Hy am currently doing higher certificate in criminal justice I want to study BED after I finish will I qualify for it ??

    1. If you want to study BEd next year, you would need to have studied a relevant qualification like the HC in Education. It’s uncertain whether you would qualify for a BEd with a HC in Criminal Justice or not.

    1. UNISA unfortunately do not offer a General Nursing diploma qualification.

      UNISA does state on its registration website that it offers a Bachelor of Arts in Nursing Science, but it does not state anywhere on the UNISA Application website.

      It’s best to head into your nearest UNISA campus and enquire about the qualification.

        1. As long as you meet the requirements set by Unisa, then it’s possible for you to apply for it.

          Make sure first that you meet the admission requirements before applying for the qualification.

    1. It depends on the type of qualification that you’re going for.

  6. Hi I am 53 years old but consider being of a disadvantage by my past. I have completed my matric through the Dept I applied to unisa last year . How and what can I study towards teaching quaLification .

    1. Depending on the pass you’ve received for your matric, you can study up to a BEd (as long as you have the APS and meet the additional requirements to match.

      Please have a look at the following for all Education related qualifications here.

      Additionally, you can head to your nearest Unisa campus and speak to a student advisor on what steps you can take in order to study the qualification of your choice.

  7. Hi, I have an aps score of 14 but I have an E in languages and another higher certificate from another college which is not saqa accredited and experience in law.What qualifications would I qualify for?

    1. The only qualification you could possibly qualify for when it comes to your APS would be the Higher Certificate in Accounting Sciences. It has an APS of 14.

      However, you still do need to match the additional requirements set for the qualification in order to have a chance of qualifying for it.

  8. Hii I passed my matric higher certificate and I finished my higher certificate in information technology at PC training and business college now I want to do teaching will I qualify for it

    1. As long as you meet the requirements set by UNISA. It also depends on what qualifications you want to apply for exactly. Note that UNISA has over 30 education qualifications, so you would need to know what it is that you want to study as well as whether you qualify for it.

      Click here to find out what qualifications UNISA offers via their College of Education.

    1. With a Higher Certificate in Tourism Management, I find it hard to see whether you’ll qualify for a BEd degree or not as they’re not in the same fields of education. I cannot say whether you’ll be accepted to study for a BEd qualification or not.

      Speak to a student advisor at your nearest UNISA campus and find out whether it’s possible or not.

  9. Hey applied at Unisa for Diploma in Public relation and I was accepted and I do accept the offer too for 2020 so now I was just reading comment here that if you want to study BEd you need to do higher certificate in teaching.

    So my question is that how can I change my course now and do higher certificate in teaching since I’m already taken in PR for next year?

    1. It’s possible that upon completion of the HC in Education, you could apply for a BEd qualification with it.

      At the same time, you’ve already accepted UNISA’s offer regarding your qualification. You’ll only be able to change your qualification at the next application window. That being said, you should still go ahead and find out whether you can change your application by heading to your nearest UNISA regional centre.

  10. Hi I passed my matric with higher certificate…. And went to the college to study marketing and I have marketing level 4….. Is it possible for me to study teaching at unisa?

    1. It all depends on whether you meet the admission requirements for your selected qualification. Read more on what Education qualifications UNISA has to offer as well as the requirements needed, online here.

  11. I want to do a higher certificate in nursing since I don’t meet the required marks ,I passed my matric with a diploma .is it possible to study at UNISA for nursing ?

    1. UNISA does not have a Higher Certificate in Nursing available as part of their qualifications, so you will not be able to study nursing at UNISA.

    1. Upon completing a Higher Certificate from Boston College, graduates will gain an endorsement for admission to Bachelor’s degree study from the South African Matriculation Board, subject to their rules

  12. I applied for higher certificate for 2020 and now waiting for registrations.. Will Nsfas fund the both the certificate and the Degree that I want to do after completing the higher certificate

    1. As per NSFAS, students who have already studied at a university or obtained a prior university qualification do not qualify as FTEN students even if they are entering the first year of a new programme.

      Students starting a university qualification for the first time, but who have already achieved a TVET qualification may qualify as a university FTEN student.

  13. Hi I applied for a higher certificate at Unisa for 2020 and I was admitted
    and waiting to register once it open now my question is since I applied online I never include my document so is that cannot coz any problem regarding my registration

    1. If your application has already been accepted, then there’s no need to worry about your application. You’ll be free to register for your chosen qualification.

  14. Hi I applied for higher certificate in Archives and Records management so after completing this qualification will I be able to study BA in political leadership and citizenship? Or bEd in intermediate phase?

    1. It’s unlikely that you could apply for a BEd qualification with a Higher Certificate in Archives and Records Management.

      Additionally, it does not state on the UNISA website that you can use the HC in Archives and Records Management to apply for a BA in Political Leadership and Citizenship. Most degree qualifications often state that you can use a higher certificate qualification to apply for specific qualifications. This does not seem to be the case in this situation though.

  15. hi , I would like to study a Bcom Business Management degree , but I had maths literacy in school and the Bcom degree requires pure maths , does unisa offer a pure maths bridging course or is there any other alternative to studying a Bcom degree with maths literacy?

    1. UNISA unfortunately does not offer a Pure Maths bridging course. There are places such as Master Maths, where you can redo/change your Maths.

      At the same time, the only alternative regarding a BCom degree that Maths is not needed as a requirement is Bachelor of Administration in Human Settlements Management.

      Another alternative that you could consider is by applying for either a Diploma qualification (3 years) or a Higher Certificate qualification (1 year). They also meet the admission requirements in order to study for a degree in the EMS department.

  16. If I complete a higher certificate in economics management science from UNISA will I be able to apply for a degree/diploma in the faculty of management at other institutions/universities such as UJ,VUT,TUT ,WITS

    1. It’s possible that you can use the qualification to help improve your chances of studying for a degree/diploma at an institution other than UNISA. You would have to add it to your list of documents that the university requires for your application.

  17. Hi,my daughters points are 19..must she apply for a higher certificate in educationeducation or law and how long does it take and after that what is the next step.she has 50% for english.

  18. Hi I have an aps score of 14 excluding life orientation I want to do a higher certificate in education what can I do to gain admission for it

    1. You won’t be able to study for a HC in Education if you have an APS of 14. The bare minimum APS you need is 15. What you could do is to find a way to improve your Matric marks in order to increase your APS score.

      1. Hey I’m Buyie, I applied at unisa and they have accepted me. I have 17 APS excluding L.O i want to study B.ed in intermidiate phase. Will I qualify after completing my higher certificate in education? And also how long does it take to complete my higher certificate in ed?

        1. A higher certificate qualification is a one year qualification. You should be able to do a BEd qualification once you’ve completed the HC in Education.

  19. Is it possible to be not accepted for the Academic year even if you applied last year. Or like it or not I’ll be accepted to the next semester on that academic year.?

    1. If you applied last year and you still haven’t got any feedback on your application whatsoever, you really should go to your nearest UNISA campus and enquire about it to a student advisor/administrator.

  20. My son has been accepted to study a higher certificate in physical science. He wants to study for a degree/ diploma in civil engineering after completing this certificate. He passed matric with diploma entry and had good marks in maths and english but low marks in physical science (hence he applied for a certificate at this stage. Is that possible? Advise will be appreciated

    1. The HC in Physical Sciences will help your son’s chances of studying towards a Diploma in Civil Engineering (read more on the qualification at UNISA here).

      You will see that one of the admission requirements for the Diploma in Civil Engineering includes a relevant Higher Certificate qualification in the field. So once he completed the higher certificate, then he can move onto the diploma.

      1. Thank you. Can he also be in a position to apply for the same diploma in civil engineering at other universities besides Unisa, or is he limited to Unisa only?

        1. I can’t say for certain if he’s only limited to Unisa or not. You may want to look at the requirements set by the universities before determining whether he qualifies to study there or not.

          Passing the HC in Physical Sciences will boost his chances though.

  21. Hi I hv have NCV level 4 completd last year and I obtained
    English 49
    L.O 47
    Mathematics 30
    Applied engineering technology 66
    Automotive repair & maintenance repair 57
    Professional engineering practice 59
    Engineering process 65
    With an Aps of 17

    1. You can only apply for a higher certificate qualification at UNISA as they are the only type of qualifications that you can apply for with a NC(V) qualification.

      If you complete a higher certificate qualification, you will be able to apply for a higher qualification (depending on if the qualification you’re going for has a HC as an admission requirement).

      Remember that you have to meet the admission requirements of the higher certificate in order to stand a chance of being accepted.

  22. Good day
    I tried to apply at unisa 2019 they said my marks are good but my Maths they can’t accept me at least if I had level 3 and I wanted to apply for Transport and Logistics how can I overcome this please help I really need to do the course please

    Thanks alot in advance

    1. Your best option would be to apply for a Higher Certificate qualification from Unisa’s College of EMS. Completing one of its higher certificate qualifications will enable you to apply for the BCom in Transport and Logistics.

      These are the current qualifications that you could apply for:

      • Higher Certificate in Banking (98225)
      • Higher Certificate in Economic and Management Sciences (98237)
      • Higher Certificate in Insurance (90013)
      • Higher Certificate in Marketing (98229)
      • Higher Certificate in Retailing (90014)
      • Higher Certificate in Supervisory Management (90015)
      • Higher Certificate in Tourism Management (98226)

      Go for the qualification that you feel would best reflect your aim of going for a BCom Transport and Logistics. As you said your marks bar Maths were good, you shouldn’t have trouble meeting the admission requirements.

    1. You cannot change or swop your course in Semester 2. You will have to go through the application process again and hope that you will get accepted for the qualification of your choice.

  23. I DONT QUALIFY FOR A BATCHELOR DEGREE IN LIFE SCIENCE STREAM PSYCHOLOGY AND PHYSIOLOGY WITH GENETICS WHICH CERTIFICATE SHOULD I DO

    1. While the official page does not state that a Higher Certificate is an admission requirement, you can boost your chances of qualifying to study the BSc Life Sciences: Psychology and Physiology Stream (with Genetics) by doing a Higher Certificate that falls under the same college, namely:

      Higher Certificate in Life and Environmental Sciences; and
      Higher Certificate in Animal Welfare.

      They might fall under the same college, but it would be wise to go for the HC in Life and Environmental Sciences.

  24. I WANT TO START A NEW QUALIFICATION AT UNISA DO I WAIT FOR NEXT YEAR OR NEXT APLLICATION TO OPEN EG FIRST SEMESTER AND SECOND SEMESTER CAN I START A NEW QUALIFICATION AT A SECOND SEMESTER ?

    1. I can’t say for certain that you will be able to apply for a BEd qualification if you completed a HC in Tourism Management as the qualifications each do not fall under different departments.

      When you complete the HC in Tourism Management, you will be able to apply and register for a qualification that falls under Unisa’s College of EMS.

  25. I wanna study Bachelor of Arts in Psychology but I do not meet the requirements. Which Higher Certificate must I do to qualify for the BA Psychology? Please help…

    1. To qualify for a BA in Psychology, you would have to complete a Higher Certificate from the same College.

      As the qualification falls under Human Sciences, you would have to take a Higher Certificate qualification from the College of Human Sciences (i.e. HC in Archives and Records Management).

      Learn more about Unisa’s Higher Certificates for 2020 here.

    1. As it falls within the same college at UNISA, it’s possible that you could do a Diploma in Civil Engineering upon completion of a Higher Certificate in Physical Sciences.

      One of the admission requirements is that you can qualify for the D. in Civil Engineering if you have a relevant Higher Certificate qualification (meaning coming from the same college).

  26. Hi i’m currently doing my last 5 modules for HC law and would like to apply for llb study at UP should I apply after I have entered the llb program at unisa or wait until until I finish my first level

    1. Once you’ve completed your HC in Law at Unisa, you should be able to apply for a LLB at any university. You do not need to start the LLB degree at one university just to head off to another. Get your HC qualification first and then apply to study elsewhere.

  27. Hi,im a unisa student doing higher certificate in economic nd management science but truely speaking that was not wat i wanted for my carea,but i applyed for high certificate in education for so many times but no luck,that why i endup doing that course so my question is would i be able to change for BED next year if i passed my higher certificate

    1. Unisa does not offer a Diploma in Hospitality. The closest that you can get to Hospitality when going for a diploma is a Diploma in Tourism Management.

      Unisa offers a BCS (Hospitality Management Stream), where the admission requirements are:

      A National Senior Certificate (NSC) (Degree endorsement) or equivalent with at least 50% in the language of teaching and learning and 40% in Mathematics,

      or

      A Senior Certificate (SC) with matriculation exemption or qualify for the exemption from the Matriculation Board with at least a D symbol on HG or a C symbol on SG in the language of teaching and learning and with at least an E symbol on HG or a D symbol on SG in Mathematics,

      or

      An appropriate Higher Certificate that satisfies the Language and Mathematics requirements.

      Usually you would have to apply for a qualification that falls within the appropriate Unisa college (College of EMS, College of Education, etc), but while the HC in Tourism Management seems like the logical step, it does not offer a Maths module.

      The BSC qualifications fall under the College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences, so you would likely have to take a HC within that college (like the HC in Life and Environmental Sciences).

      However, it does state that you can take a higher certificate as long as it fulfills both language and math requirements. So you’re not restricted in that way. Have a look at the different HC courses within this article and see which ones will be helpful to you in studying towards Hospitality.
