Can I edit my application after submission at Unisa?

Have you ever been in a situation where you really needed to make changes to your UNISA application but then realised that it had already been submitted and there was no way to modify it?

It’s unfortunate, but many students often find themselves in this predicament when they apply to UNISA. Once you have submitted your application, it becomes locked, and you will no longer be able to make any further changes or updates. 

The good news is that there is little chance of editing your application after submission. UNISA might contact you if they need any additional documents to further assess your application. It is worth mentioning that the specific documents they ask for may differ depending on the qualification you are applying for.

Once you get the opportunity to submit these documents, you may have the chance to edit your application, but remember, the portal may not be subjected to change upon the request to submit documents.

It can be a difficult one when you are looking to edit your application after submission at UNISA. 

How do I reset my Unisa username and password?

There are several reasons why one may decide to reset his or her username and password at the University of South Africa. Whichever the case may here is a simple step to take to reset your login credentials. 

  • You can choose to enter the wrong details into the login space to give you invalid credential feedback.
  • Also, you can simply click on forgotten username or password on the portal, which leads you to reset your username or password. 
  • If your “User Name” or “Password” is wrong, “Invalid Credentials” will show up.
  • Get your “Student number” ready.
  • Click “Continue” from the menu.
  • This allows you to change your username and help you choose a new password.
  • If you are from South Africa, type in your “South African ID number.”
  •  If you are from another country, type in your “Passport Number/Foreign ID number.” You must use the same “ID or Passport Information” that you used when you first signed up for Unisa.
  • To send the information, click the “Continue” button. 
  • You will get a new email with information and your new username. 
  • Remember that your password is encrypted, so what you enter will become your new password.

What is the difference between myUnisa and myLife?

Mostly, students and new applicants confuse themselves with myUnisa and myLife. This is because of a lack of orientation, onboarding and further reading. 

Well, if you thought these two were the same, you just found out they are different. There is a clear distinction between myUnisa and myLIfe. 

myUnisa serves as the designated student portal for all students. It provides a convenient platform for accessing module resources, submitting assignments, engaging with fellow students, and communicating with your e-tutor or group. Your myLife account serves as your official Unisa email address, which you will use for all communication with Unisa and your lecturers.

One Last Chance To Apply To Study At Unisa In 2024




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.

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.
