BIg news


We’re excited to announce that we are upgrading myUnisa. In just a few weeks, you will find new exciting changes and improvements in myUnisa.

What is myUnisa?

myUnisa is Unisa’s academic student portal that allows Unisa staff and students to access useful information, such as news, administration functions and module or course sites.
