Thank you for considering Unisa

Dear Prospective Student I am delighted that you are considering Unisa as your university of choice for 2012. Unisa has a proud history in South Africa, going as far back as 1873, and for nearly 140 years we've been supporting students to achieve their dreams by offering a multitude of qualifications originally through correspondence teaching and now through open distance learning. With the interests of all of our students in mind, we are constantly transforming, adapting our approach, making learning more accessible and improving the way we do things. We are also trying to learn more about our students so that we can improve our services to meet the requirements and expectations of the student population. More recently we have been concerned about the numbers of students who gain examination admission and yet fail to attend the examination. As a new student, you will be interested ­ like us ­ to know: What is the difference between students who succeed and those who don't? What teaching approaches best support our students? What are the challenges that face students studying through distance? And the answer? Knowledge - about yourself, acknowledgement of your circumstances, the obstacles you might face and your role in learning. Knowledge is what gives us power as individuals. Power to overcome, power to succeed. Mahatma Gandhi said: "Be the change you want to see in the world" - Unisa is giving you the opportunity. I urge you to begin your Unisa journey with this brochure. Open distance learning is not easy, but it is immensely rewarding. It is an achievement, both personally and for the world to see. Good luck with your studies and I hope that you will become part of the Unisa community. Kind regards Prof MS Makhanya Principal and Vice-Chancellor University of South Africa June 2011

What is open distance learning (ODL) at Unisa and how does it work?

It is important before you continue to have a good understanding of what studying at Unisa entails. This is the basis upon which you will be answering questions, assessing your abilities and determining whether Unisa is the right university for you.

Is Unisa for me?

Studying for a qualification takes a lot of discipline, hard work, sacrifice and determination. Open distance learning requires all of these qualities and more, such as the ability to self-motivate, self-start and to be self-sufficient. There are a number of factors that can affect your chances of success. Use this questionnaire to identify your areas of concern so that you can objectively make a decision about studying at Unisa.

The areas that this questionnaire assesses are: Part 1 · Personal abilities and characteristics

Part 2 · · Personal circumstances: family, friends, work, etc Practical considerations: access to a computer, proximity to an exam centre, enough funds to sustain your studies, etc

Your answers will give you a good indication of any changes you may need to make in your life to accommodate your studies, whether the timing is not appropriate or if you should consider a contact university. The first, on page 12, is what we call your abilities profile. This will help you to get an overall picture of your abilities. There are no right or wrong answers, so be as honest as you can.

Additional requirements for studying at Unisa

· · · · Meetingtheminimumadmissioncriteria Recognitionofpriorlearning Previousundergraduatestudies Fundingyourstudies

Recognition of prior learning ­ formal and informal When applying to Unisa, it is important to know that Unisa will recognise any previous learning that you may have done. This includes both formal education at a tertiary institution and informal learning, such as knowledge acquired during practical work experience. Please note that each situation is unique and Unisa will evaluate all prior learning on a case-by-case basis. This may mean, in the instance of formal education, that not all credits achieved at another institution may accumulate towards your Unisa qualification. This could be for a variety of reasons: time elapsed since your previous studies, different structure of qualifications, and so on. In the case of previous informal learning, Unisa will assess your work experience to date and advise if and to what extent this learning will be recognised and may contribute towards your qualification.

Minimum admission criteria To qualify for acceptance to Unisa there are minimum admission criteria that you need to meet in order for your application to be considered. These are listed in the table below. It is important to note that there may also be further criteria that you need to meet for the specific qualification that you choose. You will find these in the qualification tables. Meeting these criteria does not mean that you will automatically be accepted. Many qualifications have a limited number of places for the year and each application will be considered individually. Bachelor's degree To be able to register for a bachelor's degree, you must hold one of the following certificates: National Senior Certificate with entry level: degree Senior Certificate with matriculation or university admission endorsement (exemption) Certificate of full or conditional exemption issued by the Matriculation Board of Higher Education South Africa (HESA) National Certificate (vocational) at level 4 with entry level: degree If you do not have an exemption certificate, please make contact with Unisa's Access and Matriculation Exemption Office about whether you qualify for any other types of exemption certificates (eg on the grounds of foreign qualifications or post-school qualifications) Bachelor of Technology degree To be able to register for a Bachelor of Technology degree, you must hold an applicable National diploma. National diplomas To be able to register for a diploma, you must hold one of the following: National Senior Certificate with entry level: diploma/degree Senior or School Leaving Certificate with or without a matriculation exemption/endorsement, but with at least five subjects on higher and/or standard grade Qualify for a certificate of full or conditional exemption issued by the Matriculation Board of Higher Education South Africa (HESA) Standard 8 or Grade 10 certificate, be 23 years and older, and have 3 years work experience National Certificate (vocational) at level 4 with entry level: diploma Non-degree purposes (NDP) To be able to register for any module for non-degree purposes, you must: Meet the admission requirements for the programme level on which the module is offered Honours degrees Please refer to the qualification tables in this brochure (see pages 34-65) for the admission requirements for honours degrees For more detailed admission requirements go to the qualification tables in this brochure (see pages 34-65). Previous undergraduate studies at other recognised Higher Education Institution/s Your request for exemption/s will be considered on receipt of a completed DSAR04 form and the required supporting documentation. The form is available on the web (www.unisa.ac.za). Ensure that the DSAR04 form and supporting documentation accompanies your application to study.

Funding your studies While Unisa is an open distance learning university, funding your studies is still a significant investment. The cost of your studies will depend on your choice of qualification and the number of modules that you choose to complete in each year of study. The average student will take between 4 and 6 modules per year at a cost of between R1 500 and R2 000 per module. The cost of these modules does not include prescribed books and this could be an additional cost to factor into your fee calculations.

My walk @ Unisa

Now that you've assessed your readiness and suitability for studying at Unisa, we'll take you through your walk at Unisa. This is a journey that each student needs to follow to ensure that they maximise their chances of success, comply with all the administrative requirements and achieve the most benefit from their study time at Unisa. There are four stages to this journey: · Choose&apply · Register · Teach&learn · Graduate&lifelonglearning

Choose & apply Applying to Unisa does not mean that you are registered for the year of study.

Register You must register once Unisa has informed you that your application was successful and you have received your Unisa student number.

1 Choose & apply (you are here) During this stage it is important for you to choose a career path, decide on the qualification you will apply for and make your application to Unisa. We've included an exercise that will assist you in making this choice. Even if you've decided on a chosen career path, we suggest that you still complete the exercise to confirm your decision.

2 Register Once you have applied to Unisa and Unisa has approved your application, the university will send you the documents that you need to register for the modules you wish to complete during your first semester. Registration can be done either via the web, post or at a self-help terminal at one of the regional offices or campuses. NB: This phase must be completed otherwise you will not be eligible to write exams or receive any credits for work done in the year. 3 Teach & learn After registration you will receive a study pack from Unisa. This will include your study material as well as a brochure called my Studies @ Unisa. This is where your studies begin. The my Studies @ Unisa brochure includes orientation information and study advice that will aid your success at Unisa. You will also find out how to access your study material online. 4 Graduate & lifelong learning You will progress to my Link @ Unisa once you have graduated and will join the group of Unisa alumni. During this phase you can choose to remain in contact with the university and other alumni. In keeping with Unisa's philosophy of lifelong learning and giving back, we encourage our alumni to remain in contact with the university not only for the networking and academic opportunities that present themselves, but also to participate in the education of new students in a mentorship role. Let's begin the journey with Step 1 ­ Choose & apply

Step 1 ­ Choose a career

This is one of the most important decisions that you will take in your life ­ the choice of a career path. Use this exercise to help you think about your career and the qualification best suited to you. Even if you have a good idea of what you want to study we suggest that you still complete the exercise to confirm that decision. So where do I begin? Before you can decide what to study at Unisa, you need to work out where you are now, where you want to be and what you need to do to get there. The information and activities on the next pages will help you get started with the process of thinking about your career and the choices that you need to make before you apply to study through Unisa. Making a choice A successful career starts coming together when you combine things that you are good at with things that you love and are passionate about. You need to think about where you are going (your career vision) and also how you will get there (your career goals). You will need to gather information and think about your interests, values, skills, career influences, study options, the labour market and the support you are likely to get from others. We'd like to suggest that you start some sort of system to keep track of your career development. You could possibly use a notebook, file or a computer to store the information you will gather about your career decisions and to make notes of what you did, how you felt, what you have learnt and what you still need to do. You can use the activities in this book to start this and update it as you continue on your career journey. The following eight activities will help you to think about yourself and your unique characteristics, and how this is related to your choice of qualification at Unisa. Spend some time working through each of these activities and perhaps even ask a friend or family member to work through them with you. Don't worry if you are not able to identify a career at the end of each activity ­ you might only be able to make this connection after completing all the activities. If you're still struggling to make a logical connection between all your answers and a career, you can contact the Directorate for Counselling, Career and Academic Development for assistance.

To read more about specific careers, you can visit the following websites: Unisa Counselling, Career & Academic Development (http://www.unisa.ac.za/counselling) Pace Careers Centre (http://www.pacecareers.com/careercentre) Umsobomvu Youth Fund (http://www.youthportal.org.za) Career Planet (http://www.careerplanet.co.za) Prospects (http://www.prospects.ac.uk) O*Net online (http://www.online.onetcenter.org)

If you want to further explore how your interests are linked to specific job titles, then you could complete the interest questionnaire that is available on the PACE Careers website (free of charge). Go to their website at http://www.pacecareers.com/careercentre and click on "Questionnaire" to complete it.

1 My career vision Your career vision is your picture of what you want out of life ­ where you see yourself at 30, at 40 and perhaps even at 80. If you were to look back, what would you want to say about your life? You are thinking about studying through Unisa in 2012. What will be different for you as a result of your studies?

2 My life goals Your life goals are what you wish for in your life and how you intend to achieve them. Your goals can be related to your career, but they can also be related to your family, your studies and your community. Describe your goals and then think about practical things you need to do to make them happen. When you describe your goals, be specific about what you want to achieve, by when and how you will achieve them. If, for example, one of your goals is to become a counsellor, you could achieve this by first finding out about training requirements and then registering for the appropriate degree. Once you have completed your degree, you will register for your honours degree and then complete an internship programme to qualify as a registered counsellor. Remember, reaching a goal starts with a number of small steps. This is my goal: I want to achieve it (when)... How will I achieve this goal?

Select the skills you would want to use and then on "Go". You will then get a list of occupations that are related to the skills that you selected.

4 My values (what is important to me) Your values show what is important to you and they have a significant effect on the career choices that you make. Your values are shaped by your family, community, work environment and life experiences. Here are some examples of how values could influence career decisions: · Siphoisdesperatelyunhappywithhiscurrentadministrativejobandwantsmorechallenges.Heseesajob advert at his company for a sales representative training programme and is very interested. If he takes the position, it will mean a lot of travelling. Is he willing to be away from his family for long periods at a time? Is the excitement of travelling for a sales job more important? · Celiaisgoodatorganisingeventssuchasweddingsandbirthdaypartiesforherfamilyandfriends.Doesshe take the risk and resign from her secure job to make event planning a full-time business? The list below contains some common values (you can add your own if you prefer). Please read through the list and tick the five values that are most important to you: Adventure Beauty Commitment Creativity Skill(s) developed How does this relate to my career choice? Effectiveness Community oriented Family Honesty Individuality Money Quiet Spirituality Authority Belonging Competition Curiosity Excellence Status Health Humour Influence Power Recognition Autonomy Challenge Cooperation Duty Excitement Friendship Helping Independence Knowledge Public contact Religion

3 My skills (what I'm good at) Skills are abilities that you have developed and which you are able to use effectively. You develop skills as a result of your experiences. These experiences can include voluntary, paid or unpaid work, and family and community responsibilities. Skills that most organisations value include good communication skills, interpersonal skills, teamwork, personal management skills, the ability to think critically, leadership, technical skills and social responsibility. Think about your life experiences (work, studies and personal) and link them to specific skills that you have developed. Also, reflect on how these skills relate to your career choices. Example: Experience Managing the household and caring for younger siblings Now you try: Experience Skill(s) developed Personal management and social responsibility How does this relate to my career choice? I need to work where I can make a difference and take care of children in need

7 The labour market Labour market information can help you when you search for work, plan your career or explore self-employment opportunities. It is essential information to have if you want to make informed career decisions and/or search for a job. It can tell you how industries and occupations are changing and whether they are growing or declining; what skills are needed; and the working conditions for specific jobs and industries. There are many factors that influence the availability of jobs such as the impact of globalisation (local companies having to compete on the global market) and technology (use of computers and the availability of information electronically) on the international and national labour market. This means that you need to do continuous research as circumstances change constantly. Also, you will need to be creative in finding labour market information ­ all the information you need is not stored in one place. Talk to individuals who work in the kinds of jobs or industries that you are interested in. This could help you find answers to the specific questions that you still have. Possible sources of information could be family, friends, newspapers, the internet, companies, government (Department of Labour), Sector Education and Training Authorities (SETAs), non-government organisations (NGOs) or even community-based organisations (CBOs).

Step 2 ­ Choose a qualification

Qualifications: credits and levels All qualifications are expressed in terms of volumes of learning. Credits are recognised as the measure of the volume of learning required for a qualification and not academic years of study. Credits are quantified as the number of notional study hours required for achieving the learning outcomes. The credit rating system rates 10 notional hours as equivalent to one credit, for example: a Higher Certificate has 120 credits consisting of 10 x 12 credit module. A module in the qualification consisting of 12 credits equates to 120 notional hours and it would therefore require at least 8 hours of study in a 15-week semester. Qualifications therefore require a certain number of credits and these credits are broken down into smaller units. At Unisa, undergraduate modules are usually 12 credits; a Bachelor's degree of 360 credits, for example, would consist of 30 modules of 12 credits each. Every module is further pegged according to a specific NQF level and a Bachelor's degree of 360 credit would usually consist of 8 modules of 12 credits each at NQF level 5, 12 modules of 12 credits each at NQF level 6 and 10 modules of 12 credits each at NQF level 7. The levels follow on each other and a module at level 5 will normally lead to a module at level 6. In choosing a module students are advised to ensure that they have passed the module at a lower level before progressing to a module at a higher level. Before a student is awarded a qualification, he or she must have completed the required number of credits and the modules must further have been completed at the required NQF level.

Prepare for registration

Unisa will now assess your application and, if you are accepted, send you the registration documents. While you are waiting to hear about your application use the time to start preparing for your year of study.

1 2 3 4 5

Discuss your intention to study with your family and friends. Be clear about the support that you will need from them in the coming year.

Prepare your study area ­ locate a space in your home that is ideal for studying (quiet, enough natural light and well lit at night).

Allocate study time in a year planner. Mark down all the family events you will be expected to attend, school functions for your children and time for relaxation. Include the time that you will be studying as well as additional time that you may need to make up to accommodate events that you will be expected to attend. This will help you identify weeks and months where study time may be compromised and where it needs to be worked in.

Find a mentor. Finding a mentor can be exceptionally rewarding. Find someone who can provide advice on the life challenges you may be facing, act as a sounding board at moments of uncertainty and provide an objective view on resolving conflict that may arise with family or friends as a result of your studies. A mentor should be someone that you respect and admire, and who is able to understand your unique circumstances.

Register as soon as possible after you have been accepted by Unisa. By registering for your chosen modules early you will be able to join the Unisa online portal called myUnisa. Joining myUnisa is free and you will also receive a free Unisa e-mail account. The benefit of registering with myUnisa as soon as possible is that you will immediately have access to your first tutorial letter, study guide and list of prescribed books. This will ensure that you have adequate time to prepare for your first-semester exams.

Appendix 3 ­ Student funding

Do I qualify for a NSFAS loan and what are the criteria? Financially needy and academically deserving students who are applying for formal qualifications may apply for funding. Foreign students do not qualify for NSFAS funding. What does it cover and is the funding renewable? Study fees and academic essentials such as prescribed books and tutorial classes are funded. No accommodation, meals, pocket money or transport is covered. A NSFAS loan is renewable on proof of academic progress and is subject to the availability of funds. How should I obtain my prescribed books? Please indicate to the Student Funding Officer accepting your loan agreement as to which bookshop is well situated for the collection of your Eduxtra card. An Eduxtra card can be used to purchase books from any official Unisa bookstore. How do I apply for funding? Fill in the NSFAS Loan Application Form and hand it in at any of Unisa's regional offices (Student Administration), the Registration Hall on the Sunnyside campus or post it to the Directorate: Student Funding (PO Box 392, Unisa, 0003). Do a temporary registration during the first two weeks of registration. During the third week of registration, the Student Funding Division will notify all applicants of the outcome of their applications. Only approved applicants will be required to sign a loan agreement at any Unisa regional office on specified dates. Your legal guardian must sign a consent form and submit a certified copy of his or her ID if you are not yet 18 years of age. Collect your Eduxtra card within 14 days of submitting your funding contract. How and when should I repay the loan? A loan is repayable as soon as you secure employment (irrespective of whether or not you have completed your qualification) and are earning an annual salary of R26 300 or more. Repayments can either be deducted from your salary, by means of debit order or by depositing the money directly into the NSFAS account (contact NSFAS on 021 763 3232 in this regard).
