Online is essential
Access to the internet and having the relevant computer skills are essential study requirements at Unisa. Our system is designed around the internet.
Please note: From 2014, all honours students will no longer receive printed study material. Please use the next year to prepare yourself for this, and to ensure that you have regular access to a computer and the internet.
Academic support network
Perhaps the most important Unisa contact point is the one you have to create for yourself, your academic support network: people with whom you can share ideas, people who can support and motivate you. You’ll find them at home, at work and once again… on the internet.
Connecting to Unisa student services
ODL can seem overwhelming. Despite its independent nature, we do provide vital services to our students: The libraries, counselling, regional centres, student bodies such as the SRC and services for students with disabilities are all ways in which registered students can connect to Unisa and gain the unique experience that is open distance learning. Find out more about the student services and support available to Unisa students.
Re-admission in 2014
Only applicable to undergraduate students registering for the first time or starting a new qualification in 2013.
To be re-admitted as a student in 2014, a student who registered for the first time in 2013 must have registered for and passed at least 36 credits (or 3 modules). Failure to do so may mean that you will not be re-admitted to Unisa in 2014. From the second year of study, you must also pass a minimum of 48 (4 modules) per year. Failure to do so may result in you not being allowed to study further at undergraduate level, unless you complete a one-year certificate programme at NQF level 5 from an accredited university after the year of exclusion.
