As a student at the University of South Africa (UNISA), it’s important to stay up-to-date on the latest rules and regulations for the upcoming academic year.
With the 2023/2024 academic year rapidly approaching, there are a few rules that you should be aware of.
First and foremost, UNISA has updated its admission requirements for undergraduate programs.
Beginning in 2023, students will need to have achieved a minimum of 50% in four 20-credit subjects in order to be considered for admission.
Additionally, all undergraduate applicants will be required to complete a National Benchmark Test (NBT) as part of the application process.
For postgraduate programs, UNISA has implemented a new rule that requires applicants to have a minimum of a four-year Bachelor’s degree in order to be considered for admission.
This is a change from the previous requirement of a three-year Bachelor’s degree.
Furthermore, all postgraduate applicants will be required to submit a research proposal as part of their application.
UNISA has also made changes to its fees and payment policies.
Beginning in 2023, all students will be required to pay their tuition fees in full by the end of the registration period.
This means that students will need to plan accordingly and ensure that they have the necessary funds available to cover their tuition fees.
In addition to these changes, UNISA has emphasized the importance of academic integrity and has implemented stricter policies to combat academic misconduct.
This includes plagiarism, cheating, and falsification of data.
UNISA has made it clear that any instances of academic misconduct will be met with severe consequences, including expulsion from the university.
