Published

on

IMESA

IMESA is an abbreviation for the Institute Of Municipal Engineering Of Southern Africa (IMESA), which was founded in 1961. It promotes and protects the rights of over a thousand individual members, including firms in municipal engineering and the built environment sector, as well as municipal engineers.

The companies’ goal is to promote engineering skills while also providing benefits to the community.

The IMESA Bursary Scheme was established in 2000 to assist students who would otherwise be unable to afford their education in the field of civil engineering, as well as to recognize the accomplishments of IMESA members’ dependents.

Southern Africa (IMESA) Bursary 2024

For the upcoming academic year 2023, IMESA is providing students with the opportunity to apply for funding through bursaries. There will be two types of bursaries available:

Non-IMESA members (Bursary Scheme A): to pursue studies in Civil Engineering or a related discipline.
For dependents of IMESA members (Bursary Scheme B): for students related to IMESA members pursuing Civil Engineering studies.

Bursary Coverage Per Person

  • Tuition can cost up to R50 000.
  • If tuition is less than R50 000, the remaining funds can be used for prescribed books.
  • The chosen candidate will be paired with a mentor.
  • The funds will be transferred directly to the institution where the student is enrolled within 30 days of the student submitting their account statement to IMESA. Before the first installment of the bursary is issued, the student must provide proof of enrollment and a medical certificate to the head office.

The selected candidates will be notified by the end of 2023, and the bursaries will be evaluated before they are awarded.

Published

By

Apply To Study At Unisa

The clock is ticking as the University of South Africa (Unisa) reminds applicants that it’s their last chance to submit applications for the 2024 academic year. Applicants are urged to seize the opportunity to join South Africa’s largest university.

The University of South Africa (Unisa) recently announced the extension for 2024 admission applications has been extended to 17 November 2023.

This extension provides prospective undergraduate students with additional time to prepare and submit their applications. This also provides individuals who missed the opportunity to apply during the official application period.

Individuals still have the opportunity to submit applications for a wide array of academic programmes, including Higher Certificates, Advanced Certificate, Diplomas, Advanced Diplomas, and Degree programs.

Unisa Undergraduate Qualification Applications

The window for applications for admission to undergraduate qualifications for the 2024 academic year opened on 1 September 2023 and closed applications on 13 October 2023. However, the university extended applications which are set to allow more students to join the country’s largest university in 2024.

Prospective students are urged to submit their applications before 17 November 2023 as it remains unclear whether applications will open again for the 2024 academic year. 

Who Must Apply?

Unisa emphasises that all individuals embarking on a new qualification must complete an admission application. This requirement extends to first-time applicants and existing students seeking a change in their qualifications or area of specialisation. 

Individuals who previously applied for admission but were not offered placement or opted not to register after receiving a placement offer must also reapply for admission.

New applicants are permitted to apply for a maximum of two qualifications. Upon a successful application, candidates have the choice to accept or decline Unisa’s offer, with the condition of accepting only one offer.

Students completing a higher certificate or any other programmes and aiming to pursue further undergraduate studies must also apply during this application period. 

Unisa 2024 Applications Guide

Documents Needed For Unisa 2024 Applications 

  • A certified copy of school results
  • A certified copy of any tertiary education academic records
  • A certified copy of an ID document
  • Sworn translations of any documents not in English or Afrikaans

How To Apply To Unisa

  1. Visit the Unisa website.
  2. Select “admissions” in the menu bar at the top of the screen, and “apply for admission” from the drop-down menu.
  3. Choose “undergraduate admissions.”
  4. Click on “Start the process.”
  5. Follow the prompts on the screen.
  6. Fill in all relevant personal details and ensure the upload of all required documents.

As the deadline approaches, prospective students are encouraged to submit their applications before the deadline expires. This is the final opportunity to secure your place at Unisa for the 2024 academic year.

Track your Unisa application for real-time updates and ensure you meet all requirements for a successful admission process.
