Student Admissions and Registration

The University of South Africa is an institution of higher education dedicated to providing world-class open and distance learning that is uniquely tailored to South African requirements.

Since the Department is exclusively a line-function and core service department, prospective students first impressions of the University are formed here. A timeous professional one stop service is therefore essential in order to recruit students and keep them in the system. The impact of the abovementioned is direct and the results are therefore immediately visible.

With due consideration of the above, the broader vision and mission of the Department can be formulated as follows:

To provide a one-stop user-friendly, supportive service to students, so that the students pursuit of an academic qualification progresses administratively as smoothly as possible.

To implement strategic directions and further options and developments in distance learning, sound academic administration processes as well as the maintenance and development of a suitable infrastructure and skilled staff component to ensure an uninterrupted user-friendly support and advisory service to prospective and registered students as well as other clients and stakeholders.
