Application for admission 2020 second semester

Unisa has an open applications policy, but students should always ensure that the qualifications for which they wish to apply are not oversubscribed for that particular semester or year.

UNISA has reopened the application window for studying at the distance university for undergrad and postgrad courses next year.  The application period had passed but they have now announced a major change to their application process.

How Do I Apply To Study At Unisa?

I want to study at Unisa to be a teacher. How do I apply to study there? I am worried that I have missed the cut off date.

Unisa used to have a limited application period but they recently changed their system.

The new application process is called ‘open applications’ which means that applications remain open the whole year.

There is no closing date as such. However specific qualifications may be closed for applications when a qualification is full or at least two weeks prior to the start of the registration period.

For undergraduate qualifications, honours degrees and also postgraduate diplomas you are able to apply at any time during the year.

However, this is not a guarantee that you will be able to register for the next semester or even the subsequent academic year. It will depend on, among other things, whether you meet the necessary admission requirements, whether the qualification is full (over-subscribed) and whether the registration period has commenced.

It is also subject to the prescribed minimum tuition period of 15 weeks for semester modules and 30 weeks for year modules.

FAQs: Undergraduate qualifications, honours degrees & postgraduate diplomas

What do we mean by “open applications”?

It means that Unisa will accept applications throughout the year. This does not, however, guarantee that you will be able to register for the next semester or even the subsequent academic year. It will depend on, among other things, whether you meet the necessary admission requirements, whether the qualification is full (over-subscribed) and whether the registration period has commenced. It is also subject to the prescribed minimum tuition period of 15 weeks for semester modules and 30 weeks for year modules.

Is there a closing date for applications?

There is no closing date as such. However specific qualifications may be closed for applications when a qualification is full or at least two weeks prior to the start of the registration period.

When should I apply for the next semester?

You can apply at any time for the next semester. You may be offered a space, but this will depend on, among other things, whether you meet the necessary admission requirements, whether the qualification is full and whether the registration period has commenced (eg for the 2020 first semester registration period, applications should be allowed only up to 24 December 2019). Applications received during the registration period will be considered for the next academic period (semester/year).

Once I have applied, how long will it take for Unisa to respond or make me an offer?

Unisa will make an offer as soon as possible. The final date for feedback will not be later than a week before the closing date for registrations.

How long do I have to accept or reject the offer?

You will have 10 days to accept or reject the offer. If you do not accept or reject the offer, the space will be given to another student.

How do I know if a qualification is fully subscribed (full)?

The application system will indicate to you if a qualification is full. You will then have to apply for the qualification for the following semester (if the qualification is available for the next semester), or another qualification.

Once I have applied and been given a space, when do I register?

Unisa will inform you about the registration dates in your acceptance letter. Unisa generally follows this registration cycle:

  • Registration for semester 1 takes place in January.
  • Registration for semester 2 takes place from mid-June to mid-July.
  • Registration for year modules takes place from January to March (some exceptions apply, such as the College of Accounting Sciences’ postgraduate diplomas and some honours qualifications).
