Unisa 2024 Qualification Changes

Unisa 2024 Qualification Changes: Registration 2024 Closing Date

The University of South Africa (Unisa) is noted for providing all students with equitable access to higher education. As a result of its social responsibility to repair past disparities, Unisa has an application and selection process that efficiently resolves historical imbalances without jeopardizing quality requirements.

The Minister of Higher Education and Training, Dr. Blade Nzimande announced on 6 July 2016 that 31 December 2021 would be the last enrolment date for first-time entering students into old qualifications that are not aligned to the HEQSF. Kindly refer to Government Gazette No: 40123.

As a result, some outdated certifications that are not HEQSF-aligned will be phased out in the following order:

  1. The last registration date for new students on the non‐aligned qualifications was January 2023 for year modules and July/August 2023 for semester modules.
  2. All students who are currently registered for the (old) non-aligned qualifications will not be affected and can continue studying in the qualification unless they wish to be transferred to a new aligned qualification.
  3. Students who are currently registered for an (old) non-aligned qualification will be permitted to complete their qualification in terms of the teach-out plans for each of those qualifications.

All old non-aligned qualifications will be replaced by new HEQSF-aligned replacement qualifications. These new qualifications are advertised on the Unisa website. We expect that additional qualifications will be open for application and registration as soon as the accreditation processes have been finalized.

Please keep an eye on the Unisa website for information on further available substitute qualifications for the 2024 academic year.
