Welcome to your Unisa studies
If you’re new to Unisa, welcome. We hope that your journey with us will be both exciting and rewarding.
To our returning students, welcome back. You already know what you’re in for. What you may not know is, Unisa’s changing. We’ve implemented a whole lot of new processes, procedures and features, all designed to make your distance learning experience better.

This brochure has all the tips and information you need to succeed at distance learning and, specifically, at Unisa.
Think of it as a survival kit, complete with map, instructions, advice and a list of tools. Just follow the map, read the instructions, take the advice and use the tools.
