An invitation to share your Unisa@150 story

Almost all metals used are mixtures of various elements, resulting in properties superior to those of pure metals. In the same way, the academic powerhouse that is Unisa emerged from a melting pot, 150 years in the making, containing multiple institutions, diverse learning and research communities, and, above all, exceptional students and alumni.

In celebration of Unisa’s milestone 150th year of academic excellence, the institution’s publications team will publish a range of personal stories that will feature throughout the year.

If Unisa has had a significant effect on your personal and professional life, and, by extension, on members of your community, we would like to hear from you.

Send your brief story, not more than 250 words in length, to

Your submission must also be accompanied by the following:

  • Your student number (past or present), and details of the qualification for which you are registered (or have completed).
  • A daytime contact number.
  • A good-quality photo of yourself to use with the story.

Note that we will not be able to consider submissions that do not contain all of the above, and that we cannot guarantee publication of your story.

We look forward to your voice!

Best wishes

The Unisa Publications Team
