When you start planning your educational journey at the University of South Africa, there are a number of questions that may seem impossible, but they are certainly possible.

Modules are mainly subcategories of courses that students are graded on.

The University of South Africa provides various educational modules in different disciplines. The modules offered by UNISA encompass a wide range of fields, including humanities, sciences, business, and many others. Students have the opportunity to select from a wide range of modules that allow them to customise their education according to their individual interests and career aspirations. The commitment of UNISA to accessibility and providing quality education means that students can pursue higher learning no matter where they are located. This makes UNISA a popular choice for lifelong learners or working professionals.

While these choices may seem a lot, there are certain choices that can tailor your professional career. 

The common question lies within the limit in module registration, how to go for more module registration and many more. In today’s post, we will address the major questions concerning the UNISA modules.

How do I apply for additional modules at unisa

If you want to add more modules to your academic curriculum after registration has started for the academic year, it is important to follow a specific process. To complete the registration process, you will need to submit an online application and make sure to pay the necessary fee to the university before the specified deadline. By following these guidelines, students can effectively increase the number of courses they take and improve their overall educational experience. Please note that any requests to add extra modules, whether sent via email or made after the registration deadline, will not be considered official requests for module additions.

Adding additional modules can be done following these simple instructions. 

Once you have been registered for your course and you are ready to add additional modules, just follow these steps.

Can you register for more than 10 modules at Unisa?

UNISA is widely recognised for its extensive selection of academic programmes and flexible learning opportunities. Thanks to its dedication to offering a wide range of educational opportunities, this prestigious institution has become a preferred option for countless students each year. To ensure students have a balanced and manageable workload, there are specific restrictions on the number of modules they can enrol in during an academic year. It’s worth mentioning that you can register for a maximum of 10 modules, which adds up to a total of 120 credits. The purpose of this policy is to encourage academic success and ensure that students do not become overwhelmed by taking too many courses. By following this guideline, students can concentrate their energy and attention on a manageable number of modules, which leads to a more fulfilling and satisfying educational journey. 

Can I add more modules after registration at Unisa?

Adding additional modules is pretty easy but comes with certain conditions and criteria. If you have already registered for your semester course and are looking to add additional modules, you can easily do so. 

Once registration has been done and you look to add additional modules, you must pay the necessary fees. 

However, the major concern has to do with the registration window being opened. If the registration period has been deactivated, you can not add more modules. 

But once you have the registration still open, you can add more modules to the existing ones. 

Does Nsfas pay for additional modules at Unisa?

While we know NSFAS covers the student’s cost while studying at UNISA, there are certain cost that are scrutinized before it is paid. 

When you find yourself adding more modules to your studies but are getting the needed support from NSFAS, you may wonder if NSFAS will cover these additional modules. 

NSFAS looks at an average of about 5 modules per academic semester. This means any additional modules added to your studies come at your own cost. 

However, there is good news from NSFAS. If you add additional modules at UNISA, NSFAS allocates incidental allowance to cater for the cost of these additional modules.
