Welcome to Tuition and Facilitation of Learning
Open learning represents an approach or philosophy which combines the principles of learner centredness, life-long learning, flexibility of learning facilitation provisioning, removal of barriers to access, recognition of prior learning, provision of relevant tuition and facilitation of learning, construction of learning programmes in the expectation that learners can succeed and the maintenance of rigorous quality assurance over the design of learning materials and support services. This approach is applicable to all education practice and especially to the Tuition and Facilitation of Learning Portfolio.
UNISA provides various facilities and services to cater for its diverse student population. The services that are currently available to students include counsellors and volunteer peer helpers (Bureau for Counselling, Career and Academic Development), the HIV/AIDS Centre that provides essential HIV/AIDS related services, and the Advocacy and Resource Centre for Students with Disabilities.
Students using the Muckleneuk campus have access to one of the modern and well-equipped libraries for tuition and research in Africa, the UNISA Library.
