You must apply for every new qualification even


if you already have a student number.

1 CHOOSE & APPLY


First, decide whether Unisa is right for you and whether you
are right for Unisa. You need to be very sure before applying
for admission. Choose a career path, decide on a qualification,
then apply for admission during the prescribed application
periods. You can apply online, by visiting a Unisa regional office
to submit your application using the self-help terminals or post
your application to Unisa.
If your application for admission to study through Unisa is
incomplete, you will have to re-apply in the next academic
year, as no incomplete applications will be considered. Weve
developed questions to help you (youll find them later on in this
brochure). Even if youve chosen your career path, we suggest
you answer them. They will help to confirm your decision.

3 TEACH & LEARN


After youve registered successfully, youll receive your study
material and the my Studies @ Unisa brochure. This tells you how
to access your study material online. The internet plays a vital role
in the learning process at Unisa, as does discipline, commitment
and hard work.
A Unisa qualification behind your name opens many doors,
but like everything of value, open distance learning is not
an easy path.

e-tutors, myUnisa and counsellors.

For updates, please go to the Unisa website http://www.unisa.ac.za

0-5 "yes" answers: You are not suited to open distance


learning at this stage. Use your scores to identify the
changes you need to make to improve your abilities.
Continue to reassess your readiness.

Part 2
My personal circumstances

Tick

1 I am a student with special needs and require assistance.


2 I live in an area with no postal service.
3 There is not an exam centre close by (go to pages 144-149 to answer this question).

9 I do not have access to a cellphone.
10 I am battling financially and do not know how I will fund my studies and buy books.
11 I do not have enough time to study (at least 8 hours per week, per module).

The statements you ticked represent barriers to your chances of academic success. It is important to think about these
challenges and how you would be able to manage these during your studies.

Which areas can you change? Which areas do you need help with?

Who can you talk to about helping you with these areas and how do you think they can help?

What is your plan to meet these challenges? When will you make these changes?

Its a question of resources


Your internal and external resources can prepare you for change. These resources include your drive to succeed, time to study,
finances, your family and your employer (if you are employed), computer access, the internet and information, and knowing
the Unisa system, processes and rules.
List the resources you rely on for your studies. You may, for example, need to borrow funds from a family member or
employer to pay for your studies. Or you may need to use a friends computer.

Your circumstances will change while youre studying. What will happen when things change (eg when a family member
cant pay for your studies any longer or your friend no longer owns a computer)? What are the small, practical things you
could do when
you can no longer afford to study?

you no longer have access to a computer and/or the internet?

you have less time for your studies?

Choose your career


Making a career choice is not something that happens only once: over the course of your life, you will make many career
choices. These career choices need to close the gap between where you are and where you want to be. Your career choices
are shaped by what employers and/or clients want and by changes that impact globally. Employers seek transferable workrelated skills that make you adaptable in the fast-changing workplace: skills such as working with others effectively, selfmanagement, and thinking and reasoning skills. The Institute for the Future has identified a number of disruptors
(drivers for change) that affect your work, such as needing to work past 65 to ensure resources, the rise of smart technology,
the internet, and organisations functioning outside traditional organisational boundaries, enabled by social technologies.
We want you to make career choices that contribute to your graduateness career choices to help you adapt to a changing
environment. Your graduateness is linked to

y our ability to find and maintain employment continuously (referred to as employability)


your ability to learn skills required for specific fields
personal attributes (especially positive beliefs about yourself and what you can contribute)
your ability to reflect on what you are doing and how you are doing it
knowing where you are going and how to get there

As you progress with your qualification you will acquire knowledge, skills, competencies and values that will change your life.
Take time to reflect on how this impacts on your work, your relationships and your community.
The following six activities will help you to think about the various ingredients necessary to make an effective career choice.
Complete the activities, explore the additional online resources provided and have a conversation with a counsellor (by e-mail,
phone or in person) before you apply to study (contact details are provided on page 51).

This diagram represents the ingredients necessary to make a decision about your career.

are making now,
but also for future

Undergraduate higher certificates, diplomas & degrees

my future
Your career vision is your picture of what you want from life or where you see yourself in the future. As you are thinking
about studying, you have hopes that represent a picture of what you want from life or where you see yourself in the future.
Think about your situation at the moment (eg you are a school leaver, unemployed, employed, a graduate or retrenched).
Write down what it is like for you at the moment and what you would like to change about your current situation.

I want to be a

because

I want to contribute
(write down how you would want to help others)

I want to achieve
(write down what you want for yourself)

my planning
Despite uncertainty, we need to act. Otherwise the future will be more uncertain. Making decisions prepares us for the future.
If in 2015, for example, youre planning to complete a qualification by 2019, how do you know where youll be at that time?
The future holds no guarantees and planning prepares you to some degree to be able to adapt to changes.
How do you plan for uncertainty? One of the ways you could plan for uncertainty, is to know where you are going. It is not
certain how and when you will arrive and it is also possible that your destination will change. Having a sense of where you
want to be, creates a degree of certainty and a sense of being in control when things are uncertain.
Think about how to make your hopes for the future real. What practical things must you do to realise it? Do you need to find
out more about your chosen qualification? Do you need to complete a specific qualification? Do you need to talk to people in
your chosen field? Think about it and make some notes.

What else could you be? Have you thought about other career options where you could utilise your unique strengths?

How else could you use the qualification youre interested in?

What will happen if you cant achieve your plan due to unforeseen circumstances? What if you cant become what you
want to?

What information do you still need to help you plan what you need to do? Who can you talk to?

my skills
Skills are abilities youve developed and can use effectively. You learn skills from your experiences (eg voluntary, paid or unpaid
work, and family and community responsibilities). Basic skills are important when working within a fast-changing society:

c ommunication skills (reading, writing, creating online content, communicating visually & evaluating information)
social intelligence (connecting meaningfully with others and wanting to make a difference)
teamwork (negotiating, motivating and engaging with diverse groups online and offline)
problem solving and novel thinking (creating unique solutions to problems)
information management (filtering and making sense of information)

You will learn new skills in each module of your qualification. These can help you become employed and improve your
community contribution. You need to connect what you learn at university with what you can contribute in the workplace
and in your community. As you study and your skills develop, your frame of reference will expand and you will become aware
of more opportunities to apply the new skills you have developed.
Think about your life experiences (work, volunteering, school, studies and personal) and then answer the following questions:
What skills do I have?

What skills do I need to develop related to the kind of opportunities I am hoping for?

How will I develop these skills?

my values
Your values show what is important to you. As such they have a significant effect on your career choices. Values are
shaped by your family, community, work environment and life experiences. Here are examples of how values can influence
career decisions:
 atome is unhappy with his current administrative job and wants more challenges. He sees a job advert at his company
M
for a sales representative training programme and is interested. If he takes the position, it will mean a lot of travelling. Is he
willing to be away from his family for long periods? Is the excitement of travelling for a sales job more important?
S hamila is good at organising events such as weddings and birthday parties for her family and friends. Does she take the
risk and resign from her secure job to make event planning a full-time business?
Below are some common values (you can add your own if you prefer). Read through the list and tick the five that are most
important to you. Write them down in order of importance:

Apply for credits from other higher


education institutions
Unisa may recognise previous learning from previous
formal education. This will be evaluated on a case-by-case
basis. Not all credits achieved at other institutions will count
towards a Unisa qualication. Your request for exemption(s)
will only be considered once we have received your
completed DSAR04 form and a certified copy of an official
academic record, a conduct certificate and, in some cases,
the syllabus. In the case of international qualifications, SAQA
evaluation and the syllabus are required. This form can be
found on the Unisa website (http://www.unisa.ac.za).

Recognition of prior learning (RPL)


When applying to Unisa, remember that Unisa will consider
your previous learning. This includes both formal education
at a tertiary institution (eg formal certicate, diploma and
degree qualications) and informal learning (eg knowledge
or skills acquired during practical work experience,
including community work in a relevant eld). For further
information, send an e-mail to rpl@unisa.ac.za

NB: No exemptions will be finalised during the


application period.
You must meet the admission requirements for the
qualification for which you are applying for credits
and/or exemptions. A maximum of 50% of the prescribed
NQF credits may be awarded in the form of credits and
exemptions. No exemptions will be granted for Unisa's
signature modules.
Unisa reserves the right to grant and/or decline applications
for exemptions or credit transfers.

Remember, there may


be additional admission
requirements based on
the qualification you
choose.
Meeting these
criteria does not mean
automatic acceptance.
Many qualifications
have a limited number
of places for
the year.
Each application
will be considered
individually.

Our qualifications
Standards are high at Unisa. They have to be because, for
one thing, our qualifications are recognised globally. Having
a Unisa qualification behind your name takes hard work, it
means that you are dedicated, diligent and independent
qualities that are valued by employers the world over. The
following section breaks down our qualifications into their
constituent parts. It will give you a better idea of what you
need to achieve to become a Unisa graduate.

Qualifications: credits, modules


and levels
Credits are the number of notional study hours required for
achieving the learning outcomes. Notional hours include
study time, assignments and examinations. The credit rating
system rates 10 notional hours as equivalent to one credit.
For example: a Higher Certificate has 120 credits consisting
of a 10 x 12 credit module. A module consisting of 12
credits equates to 120 notional hours. It therefore requires
at least 8 hours of study per week in a 15-week semester.
Qualifications require a certain number of credits, broken
down into smaller units. At Unisa, undergraduate modules
are usually 12 credits. Each module is pegged according
to a specific NQF level. A bachelors degree of 360 credits,
for example, consists of 30 modules of 12 credits each.
A bachelors degree may consist of between 8 and 10
modules of 12 credits each at NQF level 5; 10 to 12
modules of 12 credits each at NQF level 6; 10 modules
of 12 credits each at NQF level 7.

Curriculum changes and/or the


replacement of modules
New knowledge and insight, as well as regulatory
requirements from the Department of Higher Education
and Training, and the Council for Higher Education, require
that curriculums may from time to time be changed, or
that certain modules in qualifications be replaced with
new modules. Unisa thus reserves the right to change
curriculums or to replace modules in qualifications, and
to require students registered for those qualification(s)
to convert to new curricula or new modules The
implementation of these changes will be done in such a
way that students will not be prejudiced, will not lose any
credits already obtained or be required to complete more
modules than originally required for the qualification.

NQF levels
New and changed qualifications conform to the
requirements of the HEQSF and are pegged on the new
NQF levels. Old qualifications are not HEQSF aligned and
have lower Old NQF levels as they were developed under
the old framework; these levels will be retained as such.
Qualifications indicating the old NQF levels will continue
to receive the same recognition as those on the new
NQF levels. Learning outcomes should be recognised and
pegged in line with new NQF levels.

These levels follow on from one another. When choosing


a module, you must first have passed the module at the
lower level. Before you can be awarded a qualification, you
must have completed the required number of credits; and
the modules must be completed at the required NQF level.
Plan your curriculum using the information on the Unisa
website and the my Registration @ Unisa brochure.

For engineering students WIL can take in the form of Workplace Practices as part of an Integrated Project
The purpose of work-integrated learning is to enable the learner to connect academic learning with workplace practice.
Students must demonstrate an understanding of workplace practices to solve engineering problems consistent with academic
learning achieved. Students should have completed 96 credits before they can register for WIL
Tasks to demonstrate this outcome may be performed in one or more of the following curriculum types:
1. P
 roject-based learning: that brings together intellectual enquiry, real world problems and student engagement in
meaningful work. Students who are not placed in industry in a workplace can follow this option.
2. W
 orkplace learning: where students are placed in a professional practice or simulated environment within a training
programme. Only students who have placement in industry can choose this option.

Science Foundation Provision and extended


(four-year) science programmes
Science Foundation Provision (SFP) provides additional learning support in selected science qualifications and modules.
This support is provided in the form of tutorials within each module, and in the form of mentorship and assistance in English
language, quantitative and computer literacies. The purpose of Science Foundation Provision is to improve the success rate in
science programmes and, hence, increase the throughput of our science students.
The supplementary learner support is provided to you as an SFP student at no additional cost.

First-time entering students from 2015


From 2015, Science Foundation Provision will be integrated into the first and second years of extended (four year) streams
of the qualifications listed in Tables 1 and 2. Students on the four-year streams will migrate to the regular curriculum in the
third year of study, to obtain the same qualification as students on the three-year streams. The only difference is the limit to
a maximum of 60 credits which a student can register for per year in the first two years. During the first and second years,
students on the four-year programme complete first-level modules, which include extended (year) modules with integrated
foundation support.
Important: In 2015, there are no extended programmes for the National Diplomas in Agricultural Management, Animal
Health and Engineering. The first-time entering students who register for these qualifications will therefore be identified for
Science Foundation Provision upon registering for the regular three-year programme.
From 2015 Unisa's application process will stream first-time entering students into extended (four-year) diploma and
bachelor degree science programmes based on the following criteria:
The minimum admission requirements as specified for each qualification apply;
A NSC score 50% in English for diploma qualifications and 60% for bachelors degrees
An Admission Points Score (APS) of less than 19 (diploma qualifications) or less than 25 (bachelors degrees) calculated
as follows:

The score in English Language


Add the points from five (5) other subjects excluding Life Orientation: first the score of the subjects prescribed for
normal entry into the regular qualification, and then the scores of the best other subjects using the table below

Ratings used in calculating the admission points score

70-79

Returning students (registration prior to 2015)


Students who were identified for foundation provision prior to 2015, when they registered for any one of the science
qualification listed in Tables 1 and 2, will continue on the curriculum of the regular three programme. They will similarly
obtain the same qualication as students not on foundation provision, the difference being the additional learning support
that is provided within selected 1st level modules.

Funding your studies


Unisas study fees are generally lower than other higher education institutions, but studying is a significant investment either
way. The cost depends on the qualification, obviously, as well as the number of modules you choose.
The average student registers for between 4 and 6 modules per year at a cost of between R1 000 and R2 000 per module.
The module costs do not include your prescribed books. Books are an additional cost that you must factor into your
calculations for your full costs of study.

Average Unisa student fees


Please note: These fees reflect 2014 prices and are subject to change without prior notice.
Unisa tuition fees restructuring
Currently, the pricing strategy of the university is under revision. The current focus revolves around a strategy for a fair and
appropriate pricing model to take into account the unique requirements of Unisa and its student body. The focus for 2015
will be on the following categories of students:
1
2
3

R
 SA students including those from SADC countries (97% of Unisa's student body)
O
 ther African countries (2% of Unisa's student body)
T
 he rest of the world (1% of Unisa's student body)

Consensus has been reached around 1 above and is awaiting final approval by the Council of the University of South Africa.
For this category of students, the fees will be calculated taking into account the cost of tuition and an increase in line with the
projected Unisa Price Index (UPI) for 2015. The table below provides an overview of fees for 2014 for the various fields of study.
As far as 2 and 3 (above) are concerned, the process of determining tuition fees for these categories of students will only be
finalised during the 3rd quarter of 2014 and the fees will be made available as soon as the process has been concluded.
The maximum amount indicated below is based on 120 credits for the year.

available at http://www.unisa.ac.za/studentfunding

NSFAS loans
The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS)
operates according to the National Student Financial Aid
Act 56 of 1999. Depending on academic progress, 40%
of the loan capital may be converted into a grant or bursary
by the NSFAS Board.

diplomas are not funded by NSFAS.

Interest on loans
The annual award limits are determined by the NSFAS
Board. The NSFAS maximum award amount is generally
equal to the national average full cost of study, as
determined by NSFAS.
The conversion date of the 40% loan to bursary is
determined by NSFAS.
The following parameters apply in respect of every year,
unless they are changed by NSFAS.
- Interest on loans will begin to accrue one year after the
date of completion of a funded qualification.
- The NSFAS interest rate is lower than that of the
Reserve Bank when it lends to other banks. It is also
less than the interest the borrower would pay to any
other lender.

Honours degrees, postgraduate certificates &


postgraduate diplomas

All students who


want to register for
a new postgraduate
qualification (including
honours degrees in
2015) must apply for
admission.

To be able to register for the 2015 academic year, students


must apply for admission for 2015 and receive confirmation
from Unisa that their application has been successful.
A postgraduate qualification is what you make of it. Initially,
it requires careful planning and consideration, but once you
start studying, youll need to work hard, be focused and
determined, and be able to work independently. These skills
will have been developed to some extent in your previous
studies, but this level of study will develop them further.
By now you should also have a good idea about where your
interests lie, where you want to focus and what you want
from your qualification.

This also applies


to students who
want to change to
a new postgraduate
qualification in 2015
(eg students currently
in the final year of their
qualification).

First-time applicants at Unisa:


You may submit only one application per academic
year with a maximum of two qualifications.

Unisa students wanting to start


a new qualification or change a
qualification:
 ou may submit only one application per academic year
Y
with a maximum of one qualification.

Studying towards an honours degree, postgraduate


certificate or postgraduate diploma can be an exhilarating
experience, a true journey of discovery. Use what you
learnt in your previous studies, make use of the services
and resources offered by Unisa, work conscientiously and
methodically, and youll stand every chance of success.

If you completed your undergraduate qualification


through Unisa, you do not need to submit an academic
record for that qualification. Should you require a copy
of your academic record, however, please complete and
submit the DSAR08 form.

Remember, postgraduate studies at Unisa are offered


largely online.

You must have a valid e-mail address to submit


an application.

You will not be required to pay the application fee.
