UNISA Online Application 2020 Portal and Guidelines

You will not regret your academic years at UNISA because it is a school known for academic excellence. This article will provide you with UNISA‘s application guidelines and requirements as well as its student’s portal. But before then, let’s see an overview of the school. Read On:

Overview of UNISA

UNISA is the largest open distance learning institution in Africa and the longest standing dedicated distance education university in the world. We enroll 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, color 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.

Given our rootedness in South Africa and the African continent, Unisa today can truly claim to be the African university in the service of humanity.

We have embraced the fact that we need to adapt quickly to the fast-paced higher education environment of the 21st century and this is reflected in our management style and leadership practice.

In addition, one of our main aims is to harness the new and emerging potential in information and communication technology to catapult the university into a truly digital future.

We offer an unparalleled range of study choices, ranging from short courses and certificate programs to three-and four-year degrees and diplomas, close to 400 000 current students.

As one of the leading research institutions on the continent, our research efforts have won us numerous awards, recognitions, and honours.

Whether you’re starting a new journey with us or staying involved with your alma mater, we commend you on choosing a world-class institution that has been building Africa’s future for more than 145 years.

Required Documents to study at UNISA

Prospective students applying at Unisa need the following documents available for the application process (in electronic format):

Undergraduate applicants:

  • A copy of your school qualifications;
  • Copy of your official tertiary academic record (if you have one; no internet copies)
  • A copy of your ID document or passport, depending on if you’re from South African or from another country
  • Copy of your marriage certificate or divorce decree (if that is applicable)
  • Sworn translations of the above documents if they are not in English or Afrikaans

Postgraduate & honors applicants:

  • A copy of your school qualifications;
  • Copy of your official tertiary academic record stating the year of registration, modules passed and percentages obtained (no internet copies);
  • A copy of your ID document or passport, depending on if you’re from South African or from another country

  • Sworn translations of the above documents if they are not in English or Afrikaans.

Additionally, international students applying for a postgraduate diploma or honors degree may have to submit to a SAQA evaluation. International students will also have to upload a copy of the university ledger.

Students in their final year of studies (excluding Unisa students) who do not have an official academic record that states that they’ve completed their qualification will have to submit their official academic record to Unisa by 13 December 2019.

Students who have applied to UNISA prior to 2016 need to resubmit all required documents in order to avoid a delay in processing your application. Note that certain qualifications may require additional documentation. UNISA does reserve the right to request the original documentation in order to verify the submitted documents.

Submitted fraudulent documentation is an offense as stated in the university’s Student Disciplinary Code (SDC) and can result in not being accepted to study at UNISA. Additionally, submitting the academic record after 13 December will delay the processing of applications.
