How To Apply to Unisa And TVET Colleges

You must apply to Unisa during the regular application period. You must register with Unisa within the registration period if you are accepted. At the same time, you must enrol in classes at the TVET institution of your choosing. Remember to check that your college of choice provides assistance with the higher certificate you have applied for. To apply;

  • You may apply for a maximum of two qualifications, ranked in order of preference (although you may only register for one should both of your qualifications be successful).
  • Unisa will inform you of the outcome of your application. If successful, Unisa will indicate for which qualification you have been accepted and will offer you a space for the period for which you have applied (  semester 1).
  • You must accept or decline Unisa’s offer within the prescribed period. If you miss this deadline, Unisa will withdraw the offer and give your space to another applicant.
  • First-time applicants to Unisa will be required to complete the First-Year Experience (FYE) MOOC (massive open online course) before being able to accept Unisa’s offer.
  • You may only accept one offer. This means that when you accept an offer for one qualification (irrespective of whether it is your first or second qualification of choice), the other offer will automatically fall away. If you accept Unisa’s offer, you must register for the period for which you have been granted admission. Should you not register for the relevant
  • semester of study, you will need to re-apply for admission during the next application period.
