Student fees and funding your studies

Student fees and funding your studies

Unisa's study fees are generally lower than other higher education institutions, but studying is still a significant investment either way. The cost depends on the qualification, obviously, as well as the number of modules you choose.

The average student registers for between 4 to 6 modules per year at a cost of between *R1 815,00 and *R7 550,00 per module (* these amounts are subject to change). The module costs do not include your prescribed books. Books are an additional cost that you must factor into your calculations for your full costs of study.

Application for admission fee

The application fee is non-refundable even if you decide not to study through Unisa or do not qualify for admission to Unisa.
Please note that Unisa does not accept cash or cheques at any of its offices.
