Application outcomes

Unisa will assess your application, which includes the points score system. You may be offered a space for the 2023 semester 2, academic year based on the following: whether you meet the academic admission requirements for your qualification of choice, your minimum academic points score (APS) and the number of spaces available for the qualification for which you have applied.

Please note:

  • Applicants who do not qualify for admission will get feedback as soon as their applications are processed. 
  • Based on Unisa's application and selection process outlined above, applicants may not automatically be accepted to study through Unisa in 2024 semester 1. Spaces for some qualifications are limited and offers will only be made once all the applications received have been processed. In such cases, your application will be processed and you will be informed that your application for your qualification of choice is subject to enrolment management.
  • Applicants who qualify for admission will only receive final feedback as to whether or not Unisa will offer them a space for the 2024 semester 1, academic year once all applications received by the closing date have been processed.

I've received an offer. What must I do?

Step 1 First-time applicants to Unisa must complete the First-Year Experience MOOC (massive open online course). The aim of the FYE MOOC (UOL009-FYE101_2024) is to orientate and prepare first-time entering students so that they can successfully undertake their studies at Unisa. Please note: You will not be able to accept Unisa's offer (step 2 below) if you have not completed Unisa's free online MOOC.
Step 2 After completing the FYE MOOC, you must accept or decline Unisa's offer for the 2024 semester 1, academic year within the prescribed timeframe (10 days, unless otherwise indicated in the offer e-mail). To accept or decline Unisa's offer, go to www.unisa.ac.za/acceptoffer
* Unisa reserves the right to withdraw an offer if you don't accept within the time period indicated in the offer e-mail.
Step 3 Register for the 2024 semester 1, academic year. Registration for the 2024 academic year will open in January. You must register for the period for which you have been granted admission. Should you not register for the 2024 academic year, you will need to re-apply for admission during the next application period.
