How many qualifications can I apply for?
You can apply for a maximum of two qualifications. You may be offered a space based on the following: whether you meet the academic admission requirements for your qualification of choice, your minimum points score and the number of spaces available for the qualification for which you have applied.
How do I apply?
Visit the Unisa application website (www.unisa.ac.za/apply) and follow the 5-step process.
I applied in the previous application period but did not upload the required supporting documents and/or pay the application fee. What must I do?
You must re-apply for admission during the relevant application period. Your student number allocated to you as part of your previous application remains valid.
I studied previously through Unisa. Must I also submit my academic record?
Yes, please obtain this information from myUnisa and submit your academic record as part of the application process. Please note that you do not need to get this academic record certified, as Unisa can verify the information against the Unisa database.
Will I still be able to submit any outstanding documents after applications have closed?
No. Unisa will not accept any late applications or documents submitted after the closing date for applications. You will need to re-apply during the next application period.
Will I be able to change my two proposed qualification after I have submitted my application for 2023 (even for Grade 12 applicants)?
No qualification can be added or changed once an application has been submitted. You may apply for a maximum of two qualifications during the application process. You may want to consider applying for a lower-level qualification as your second choice.
Current or returning Unisa students who wish to change to a new qualification/specialisation may ONLY apply for this change during the relevant application period.
