The University of South Africa (UNISA) is the largest university system in South Africa. The institution takes great satisfaction in having rigorous academic standards, a well-balanced academic programme, and ethical behaviour.

In fact, UNISA’s research outputs are commendable and cannot be compared to those of other universities in terms of the number of students per faculty. All in all, it is the perfect place to go if you want to develop personally and professionally.

UNISA is currently accepting applications for UNISA Admission 2023 for new and returning students. Keep reading to find out the requirements and how to apply.

Undergraduate Qualifications

Application Period: 1 September to 14 October 2022

Everyone interested in beginning a new qualification may apply to UNISA Admission 2023 for undergraduate degrees. This covers UNISA students switching to a new qualification and/or specialisation as well as first-time UNISA candidates.

Consider that you are finishing a higher certificate. If you desire to pursue more undergraduate coursework in that situation, you must submit an application for admission.

On the other hand, if you previously applied for admission and were given a spot, but did not accept the offer and/or did not register for any reason, you must reapply for admission.

In order of choice, you may submit applications for a maximum of two qualifications. Regarding the outcome of your application, UNISA will let you know.

If chosen, you have the predetermined amount of time to accept or reject UNISA’s offer. The university will withdraw the offer and give your spot to another applicant if you miss this deadline.

Prior to accepting a UNISA offer, first-time applicants will need to finish the First-Year Experience MOOC. One offer may be accepted just once. As a result, if you accept an offer for one qualification, the other offer will be rejected immediately.

Not to mention, if you accept the offer, you must enrol in classes during the time period for which you have been admitted. The qualifications are listed here.
