UNISA Online Registration Is Now Open

University of South Africa (UNISA)

Unisa has opened their online registrations for 2022 studies. Be sure to secure your spot and register as soon as possible.


University of South Africa (UNISA)

Unisa has taken the leap due to Covid-19 and moved their registrations for 2022 online. Due to the rise in infections and the second wave, this is definitely a good move for Unisa and other Universities to make.

Students will only be allowed to come to the offices if they have serious registration issues. They will then need to complete a Covid-19 health check on the Covid-19 health check app before visiting the offices.

Returning students will be required to use the booking app to book an appointment before visiting a Unisa office.
