Get practical: How to select your qualification

You have now identified the qualifications linked to your career interests and future planning. The next step is to choose the qualification(s) for which you want to apply. This will enable Unisa to evaluate your application and advise you of the outcome.

Unisa's undergraduate qualifications are offered at different NQF levels. You can apply for admission to two qualifications, so you may want to apply for a lower-level qualification in addition to your qualification of choice. If you want to apply for admission to a Bachelor of Commerce (BCom) degree, for example, you may also want to apply for a higher certificate in the College of Economic and Management Sciences to ensure that you meet all the relevant admission requirements. As you progress with your application, you will get a better understanding of the qualification(s) for which you qualify for admission.

If you have completed a higher certificate and want to apply for admission to a diploma or degree, please click here for the list of related qualifications. Please note that completion of a lower-level qualification, such as a higher certificate, is not a guarantee that you will be admitted to the higher-level qualification (eg diploma or bachelor degree), as spaces are limited.
