Study at a South African University while living in Nigeria
« on: December 22, 2014, 01:50:23 PM »
If you are interested in a South African qualification but you do not wish to travel,  then this article is for you... keep reading.

The University of South Africa (UNISA) is an open distance learning institution and it is the largest university in Africa. UNISA has great international academic credentials and it has branches all over the world. In fact, UNISA was ranked 6th best in Africa and 862nd in the world (Webometrics, 2013).

For those already in South Africa, consider UNISA as a first open because unlike most South African universities, UNISA does not charge any international fees to international students and it doesn't require a study permit or medical aid. Because UNISA is distance learning, most of the communication is done online, the application fee is only R100 and their school fees are reasonable.

For information visit the UNISA website on or #AskYourQuestion on the forum.

Hi Tolani,
Thanks for your question.

Unfortunately, most bursaries available for non-South Africans are at postgraduate level, often Masters and Doctorate level.

Here is a list of bursaries UNISA offers to non-South Africans:

1. Unisa Masters by Dissertation and Doctoral study Bursary

Criteria and conditions:
In line with the university’s funding policy, student funding to postgraduates is provided on the basis of academic merit. Kindly note that a submitted application form does not guarantee a bursary. Only applications received before the closing date will be evaluated for funding. Applications are open from 15 September 2014 to 27 February 2015. Incomplete and late application forms will not be considered.

- The bursary is awarded to South African and non-South African citizens, but preference will be given to South African students.
- Preference will be given to, but is not limited to, the following fields: Natural Sciences, Engineering, Mathematics, but not to the exclusion of the social sciences or humanities.
