Unisa application second semester

Who must apply?

  • Everyone wanting to start a new qualification must apply for admission. This includes first-time Unisa applicants, Unisa students changing to a new qualification and applicants who previously applied for admission but were not offered a space.
  • Everyone completing a Higher Certificate or Alternative Pathway / Extended Programme must apply for admission to the follow-on qualification.
  • You must re-apply for admission if you previously applied for admission and received feedback, but did not register for any reason.
  • Everyone planning to enrol for classes at a Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) college under the Unisa-TVET agreement must apply for admission.

What’s new for 2019?

  • You may apply for a maximum of two qualifications, ranked in order of preference (although you may only register for one should both of your applications be successful).
  • Unisa will inform you of the outcome of your application.
    • Successful application: Unisa will indicate for which qualification you have been accepted and will offer you a space for the period for which you have applied (ie either semester 1 or semester 2).
    • Unsuccessful application: There are a number of reasons why your application may be unsuccessful, for example:
      – Your application was incomplete.
      – You did not pay the application fee by the closing date for applications.
      – You do not meet the statutory and college admission requirements for your qualification(s) of choice.
      – There are limited spaces available for each qualification. Students are accommodated on the basis of the number of places available for each qualification.
  • You must accept or decline Unisa’s offer within the prescribed period of time.
    What happens if I don’t accept Unisa’s offer?

    • The university will withdraw your offer and give your space to another applicant.
    • You will not be able to register for the 2019 academic year.
  • If you accept Unisa’s offer, you must register for the period for which you have been granted admission (ie semester 1 or semester 2). Should you not register for the relevant semester of study, you will need to re-apply for admission during the next application period.
