Applications to remain open until 30 January 2018

Unisa re-opened applications on 15 January 2018 for first-time entering undergraduate students as a result of extended funding opportunities available to first-time entering students. The deadline for applications was originally 19 January 2018, but this was extended to 23 January 2018 as a result of the strike action at Unisa. During this time, Unisa has received more than 59 000 applications, most of which were submitted online. Online applications closed at midnight on Tuesday 23 January 2018.  

As a university, however, we understand that there may still be a need for some students to apply online and via a self-help station at one of the Unisa regional offices. Unisa offices will, therefore, be open for applications on 29 and 30 January 2018.
