Unisa is a distance learning university that offers a wide range of qualifications. In addition to a wide variety of accounting courses, their College of Economic and Management Sciences offers a selection of courses in tax and bookkeeping. Their other colleges include Human Sciences; Education; Law; Agriculture and Environmental Sciences; and Science, Engineering and Technology.


How does distance learning work at Unisa?

Unisa offers short courses, certificates, diplomas and degrees, which makes them a popular choice among South Africans, as well as among students from other African countries. They have exam centres in many countries around the world, which means that students are able to study and write their exams even if they are working or travelling abroad.

As their students are not required to attend classes on campus, Unisa is able to cater for more students than a traditional university. They make use of either a courier service or the postal service in order to deliver study material to their students.

Although Unisa does not offer extensive student support, they do occasionally host a variety of workshops and seminars for certain subjects. These workshops and seminars are usually held at the regional centres.

They also have an online student portal, where students can access past exam papers and communicate with other students who are studying the same subjects. Unisa students are encouraged to form study groups with one another, or post discussion topics on the forums and get advice from one another as to how they managed to study their material effectively.
