Introduction

This section of the Calendar contains the rules for the various degrees, diplomas and certificates offered by Unisa. If, aer having carefully read this part of the Calendar you still have problems in deciding on a course of studies or doubts as to the interpretation of the rules, you are most welcome to write to the Registrar. You may also discuss the maer in person with the staff of the Department of Student Admissions and Registrations (Tel: 0861 670 411) or staff aached to one of the registration facilities. When reading the composition of the various curricula, you must take into account the modularised semesterised tuition model. See Part 2 of the Calendar to check whether and in which semester a specific module for which you wish to register is being offered. Unless otherwise specified, the admission requirement for studies at Unisa is a certificate of exemption from the matriculation examination. See G13 in Part 1 of the Calendar. The following is an abstract of Rule G13. NB Part 1 of the Calendar contains the General Rules applicable to registered students and is issued to them together with their registration material.

Recognition of prior learning (RPL)

Recognition of prior learning (RPL) is the recognition by Unisa of prior learning which has occurred in the life of the candidate.

The RPL programme at Unisa enables you to gain recognition and credit for what you already know and can do. You receive credit for what you have learned from your experience rather than from the experience itself. For example, if you have worked as a police official for ten years, you will have learned a vast number of skills, such as how to effect an arrest, how to write a statement, how to negotiate. If you have started up and run your own successful business, you will be experienced in budgeting, stocktaking and preparing proposals for clients. If you have done research and wrien research reports, you could request credits in the field of research.

RPL may make it possible for you to earn credits towards a Unisa qualification, thereby shortening your study time and decreasing your study fees. Applications or enquiries can be directed to: Dr E Smith at 011 471 3795 or [email protected]

Science Foundation Provision

FROM 2010

To be registered as a candidate for BSc (Life Sciences) degree, a student must have the following: (1) The minimum admission requirement is a National Senior Certificate (NSC) as certified by Umalusi with an achievement rating of 4 (Adequate Achievement, 50-59%) or beer in four subjects chosen from the following recognised 20-credit NSC subjects (which will be known as the designated subject list): Accounting Agricultural Sciences Business Studies Consumer Studies Dramatic Arts Economics Engineering Graphics and Design Geography History Information Technology Languages (one language of learning and teaching at a higher education institution and two other recognised language subjects) Life Sciences Mathematics Mathematical Literacy Music Physical Sciences Religion Studies Visual Arts (2) In addition to the above requirement the following conditions apply: The three NSC subjects from the list should include three of the following:

DEFINITION OF SCIENCE FOUNDATION PROVISION

Science Foundation Provision describes the additional learning that selected students in some of the undergraduate Degree and Diploma programmes are offered in selected modules in the first level. Additional learning is provided in the form of tutorials, facilitated peer collaborative learning and assistance in language, mathematics, information and computer literacy. Learner support is provided at no additional cost to the science foundation student. The learner support doubles the learning time prescribed in the mainstream modules. The first level should therefore be covered over a longer period as the extra tutoring increases the student's workload. The recommended distribution of modules within a year in the first level, which should normally be completed over a two year period of study, is as follows Semester 2 Maximum 3, including science foundation module (s) Year Modules Maximum 5, including science foundation module(s)

Semester 1 Maximum 2, including science foundation module (s)

All the requirements for admission and completion of the normal programme apply.

PURPOSE OF SCIENCE FOUNDATION PROVISION

The primary purpose of science foundation provision is to equip students with appropriate learning skills in order to improve the success rate.

QUALIFICATION INTO SCIENCE FOUNDATION PROVISION

First level students registering for the 1st time A calculated point score of 17 or lower.

The points can be calculated by following steps 1 and 2 using the table below: Step 1: Step 2: Write down the score for your two language papers Add the points from four other subjects: first the score of the prescribed required subjects for admission, and then the scores of your best other subjects.

qualification(s) at Unisa. The sixteen modules on second and third level prescribed in accordance with Rule Sc5(1)(a) must be passed at this University towards the second BSc degree. Exemption from these modules cannot be granted. A student may not choose as a major subject for the second BSc degree a subject which was passed as a major subject for the first BSc degree. Application for registration for a BSc degree aer a completed Bachelors degree Students who have completed a Bachelors degree (not necessarily in Science) must pass the sixteen modules on second and third level prescribed in accordance with Rule Sc5(1)(a) at this university. Exemption from these modules may not be granted. If a student is exempted from one or more modules (or a course) on third-year level on the grounds of courses passed at this or another university towards a completed degree, such modules/ courses will NOT be counted as part of a major subject towards the BSc degree, except in the case of third-level modules that were previously passed at this university for the National Certificate in Datametrics or for non-degree purposes (NDP) in accordance with the provisions of Sc13(1)(d). See also Sc7(3). The sixteen modules on second and third level prescribed by Rule Sc5(1)(a) must be passed at this University. Students who want to register for Computing as a major should (a) have access to an Internet Café or a Unisa Regional Learning Centre or other Internet facility.

Definitions

Study units in all subjects are known as MODULES. A student receives credit for each study unit passed ­ see Sc6 in Part 7 of the Calendar. If Module A is a PREREQUISITE for Module B, a student must pass Module A before he/she enrols for Module B. If Module A is a CO-REQUISITE for Module B and a student wishes to enrol for Module B but has not yet passed Module A, he/she must register for Modules A and B simultaneously. A student may NOT cancel his/her enrolment for a co-requisite unless the module(s) for which it is prescribed is(are) also cancelled. Modules, courses and the papers of second- and third-year courses are designated by codes consisting of seven characters. The first three indicate the subject, the fourth the level of the study unit and the next two the number of the unit. The seventh character is for purposes of control. CHE101N is module number 1 (or 101) on level 1 in the subject Chemistry CHE213V is module number 3 (or 213) on level 2 in the subject Chemistry MAT301S is module number 1 (or 301) on level 3 in the subject Mathematics

NB If you hold a senior or school leaving certificate without a matriculation exemption, matriculation or university admission endorsement, you should contact the University in connection with conditional exemption (e.g. on grounds of age (+23)) ­ see Sc1(1) NB 1. If you first obtained a senior or school leaving certificate without a matriculation exemption, matriculation or university admission endorsement, and then began studies for an approved THREE- or FOUR-YEAR DIPLOMA (e.g. at a Teachers' College, a Technikon, a University or a Nursing College that was affiliated to a South African university), you can normally apply to the University for a certificate of exemption on completion of the diploma. A certified copy of the relevant document under AG17(1)(a) AND evidence that you have satisfied the Mathematics requirement in AG117(1)(b)(i)­(iv) or AG17(1)(c), must accompany your FIRST application for registration. See G13 in Section 1 in connection with applications for a certificate of exemption, conditional exemption and exemption by virtue of qualifications obtained in other countries. Application for registration for a second BSc degree A student who has completed a BSc or another degree in Science or Engineering may not register for a second BSc degree without permission of the Senate. Applications must be submied on the prescribed form which appears at the end of Section 6. The application must be accompanied by a statement of all the courses already passed, unless he/she completed his/her previous

EXAMPLES

NB The FULL CODE (eg MAT101L or MAT102M) for each study unit must be used by students in all cases. The full codes will be found in the respective subject chapter in Part 2 of the Calendar.

Consult the Chair of the Department before registering.

All the modules are not necessarily offered each year and the Chair of the Department must be consulted beforehand. The theoretical examination in each module with a theoretical component consists of one two-hour, three-hour or four-hour paper. Interdisciplinary degrees contain modules from various departments and colleges. They must be designed as packages; however, a minimum of 50% must come from the home College. In the College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences, and subject to the approval of the Chair of department concerned, students may replace not more than two of the papers of their Honours Bachelor of Science degree by an Honours paper in another subject if the department Chairs concerned are of the opinion that the students have sufficient background knowledge to be able to offer that paper and it is in the best interest of such students.

General Information

Co-operative education in Agriculture and Environmental Sciences (CAES)

Co-operative education is an educational model that incorporates productive work into the curriculum as a regular and integral element of a higher education course. There are three co-operative partners in this model, the educational institution, the student and the industry. Co-operative education not only produces an able work force, it reinforces the link between the institution and industry and provides access to onthe-job earnings. It is an effective means of developing a nation's human resources by reducing training costs, ensuring short lag time between hiring and productivity and by lessening supervisory time. In Agriculture and Environmental Sciences National Diploma programmes are designed and devised with a specific, specialised career in mind in the private, the semi-public or public sectors and the needs of the actual industry determine the structure and contents of the instructional programmes. The following figure highlights the different components of co-operative education as we practise it in Agriculture and Environmental Sciences:

CO-OPERATIVE EDUCATION

THEORETICAL COMPONENT

WORK-INTEGRATED LEARNING COMPONENT

Theoretical Career studies experience

Practical courses/ Laboratory work

Formal training modules

Vocational learning experiences

Focus on Learning outcomes: Specific Critical

Focus on

The National Diploma and BTech programmes have: one or more compulsory practical contact courses a structured work-integrated learning component and provide guidelines and/or logbooks to record the activities at the workplace formal evaluation of work-integrated learning and practical contact courses The theory, the practical component and work-integrated learning cannot be separated because of the distance education model. All three aspects must be regarded as a unit. During the practical weeks students not only apply the theory, but are also taught practical skills they need and must apply in their work-integrated learning. Students

47

are expected to apply the skills acquired during the practical contact courses and work-integrated learning in their theory. Therefore the distinction between practical, theory and work-integrated learning is mainly for administrative purposes. The primary focus of co-operative education is to achieve the formalised learning outcomes in each programme or course. This describes the: knowledge-base the student should accumulate skills the student should be able to apply vocational aitudes that should have been instilled on completion of the course of study. The learning outcomes can be subdivided in `specific outcomes' that describe the outcomes or competencies expected in a specific course or module and `critical outcomes' that are prescribed as regulations under the South African Qualifications Authority Act, (No. 58 of 1995). In distance education the critical outcomes are accommodated especially in the work-integrated learning and practical contact courses. According to the SAQA Act, all qualifications should achieve the following critical outcomes: (a) identifying and solving problems in which responses display that responsible decisions, using critical and creative thinking, have been made. (b) working effectively with others as a member of a team, group, organisation, community. (c) organising and managing oneself and one's activities responsibly and effectively. (d) collecting, analysing, organising and critically evaluating information. (e) communicating effectively using visual, mathematical and/or language skills in the modes of oral and/or wrien persuasion. (f) using science and technology effectively and critically, showing responsibility towards the environment and health of others. (g) demonstrating an understanding of the world as a set of related systems by recognising that problem-solving contexts do not exist in isolation. (h) contributing to the full personal development of each student and the social and economic development of the society at large, by making it the underlying intention of any programme of learning to make an individual aware of the importance of: (i) reflecting on and exploring a variety of strategies to learn more effectively; (ii) participating as responsible citizens in the life of local, national and global communities; (iii) being culturally and aesthetically sensitive across a range of social contexts; (iv) exploring education and career opportunities; (v) developing entrepreneurial opportunities. `On co-op, a student experiences the real world. They enhance their transferable skills and gain first-hand knowledge of the practical applications of what they learned in the classroom. A student learns how to interact, to be a true team player; how to influence, negotiate and be successful; political hazards are navigated or not navigated. With co-op, a graduating student has a beer set of tools with which to sell themselves, and with which to be successful aer graduation.' (Karl Zimmer in Cates, C. and Jones, P. 1999. Learning outcomes. The Educational Value of co-operative education. Columbia: Co-operative education Association, inc.).

To fulfil the requirements for programmes offered in CAES, a student must have completed a period of six to twelve months' work-integrated learning. (See specific programme requirements). Work-integrated learning can only be done at organisations approved by each programme. Students can undertake work-integrated learning with more than one organisation. Work-integrated learning in the workplace should be done under the guidance of a qualified supervisor (or mentor) according to the syllabus guidelines. These guidelines are given in an work-integrated learning guide or logbook. Specific requirements for each programme are explained in the respective programme sections.

STUDENTS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR FINDING THEIR OWN WORK-INTEGRATED LEARNING OPPORTUNITY

Although UNISA is not responsible for finding placement for students to complete their work-integrated learning, we will assist students find opportunities to do this component. Various institutions frequently contact us when they require students for specific periods or activities. These opportunities will be placed on myUnisa. It is also the student's responsibility to ensure that the work-integrated learning received is of the required standard and complies with the guidelines In the work situation the mentor should take on the role of the lecturer. He/she should therefore act in such a manner that trust and understanding is fostered thus allowing a trust relationship to develop between the mentor and student. The role and responsibilities of the mentors are described by each programme and may include: orientation before the students starts their experience in the workplace guidance and academic assistance of students during their time at the company acting as co-evaluators of projects and experiences continuous development of students and helping them to develop a work ethic Students may select one of the following models to complete their work-integrated learning: Formal tuition and work-integrated learning simultaneously. This applies to students employed full-time or part-time by an accredited enterprise OR Work-integrated learning on completion of theoretical component of tuition. It is however strongly recommended that students register for WIL to receive the guides and/or logbooks and to start logging their workintegrated learning as soon as possible.

1.2.1 Registration for workintegrated learning

The work-integrated learning component for CAES programmes is offered as one subject or as multiple subjects. For the specific requirements for work-integrated learning, refer to the specific programmes further in this calendar. Students must register for the work-integrated learning subjects and complete the appropriate work-integrated learning time in industry in order to meet the requirements of work-integrated learning. Registration for work-integrated learning is on a one-off basis and is valid until all the requirements of work-integrated learning have been met, but not exceeding five years. However, if the instructional programme is recurriculated during this time, students will have to change to the new programme. A guide and/or logbook as well as a tutorial leer explaining the requirements for work-integrated learning will be issued to all students who register for the work-integrated learning component. Aer registration with UNISA, students are also required to forward the CAES co-op registration forms included in the courseware to The College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences. This will allow staff to:

1.2

Work-integrated learning in CAES

Work-integrated learning (WIL) refers to the period of time when students are placed in the relevant industry to receive specific in-service training in order to apply theory in practice. Unisa, the student and the specific industry jointly determine what is expected of a student during this work-integrated learning period.

48

identify students who need work-integrated learning placement assist students in finding placement opportunities and/or mentors for a specific project, activity or experience identify co-operative education employers for closer collaboration with UNISA identify mentors and provide mentor training, if necessary

the national diploma and his/her performance is not up to standard, the student can be asked to redo some of the activities/projects, or the period of work-integrated learning can be extended. For specific requirements for evaluation of WIL please refer to the specific programmes

1.2.2 Record of work-integrated learning

Students are expected to record all learning received at the workplace experience in a logbook. The employer/mentor must sign these logbooks to certify that students have personally completed the activities according to the required standard. Students are also required to keep a portfolio, write reports on their experience, and do specific projects during this year.

1.2.6 Recognition of prior learning (RPL) or work-integrated learning (WIL)

RPL is a process through which an individual may obtain formal recognition for achievements of past learning and experiences. Students who are interested in being exempted from registering for the full work-integrated learning component and repeating activities in which they can demonstrate competence, have to: Complete the RPL application form for recognition of prior work-integrated learning in full. These forms are available from the regional offices. Fax or post the completed application form to: Aention: RPL Officer UNISA Private Bag X6 FLORIDA 1710 FAX: 011 471 3572 E-mail: [email protected] As soon as we receive the completed application form, we will contact the student to discuss further actions. An RPL fee is payable per work-integrated learning subject credit requested.

1.2.3 Placement for work-integrated learning

While institutions will provide assistance to students in securing placements for work-integrated learning, they cannot guarantee these placements. It is the student's own responsibility to find suitable employment (full-time or part-time) that will ensure adequate workintegrated learning. The implication of this is that if students are not able to do work-integrated learning, they will not be awarded the national diploma, even though they have passed all the theoretical subjects. We wish to stress that UNISA will only provide the names and CVs of students to institutions that enquire. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR PLACEMENTS. For the most part, the conditions that apply to full-time employees at organisations also apply to students in work-integrated learning placements. The students cannot displace full-time employees; they are not guaranteed a job at the end of the training period and they are not entitled to wages during work-integrated learning, although some organisations do pay a nominal allowance or bursary to assist students. UNISA made provision for possible third party claims emanating from work-integrated learning activities of students at the workplace and practical contact courses. (The Executive Director: Finance can be contacted for more information regarding the Insurance.) It is, nevertheless, the responsibility of a student to inform the College in writing of any unsafe or unhealthy conditions in the workplace at which a student has been placed.

1.3

Practical contact courses in CAES

The practical skills component of the programmes is offered in the form of compulsory practical contact courses. The contents of these courses are based on the requirements of the industry. Practicals are offered in co-operation with the specific industry. In addition to UNISA lecturers, experts from industry are appointed as guest lecturers to offer certain modules of the practical courses. The practical training is assessed during the course. Students must aend and pass all the prescribed practicals in order to be awarded the relevant qualification.

1.3.1 Provisional dates and costs

The dates for practical contact courses in this calendar are provisional and thus SUBJECT TO CHANGE. The provisional dates and costs for accommodation and meals are given in the tables under each programme. The date that full detail of the course is available (D1) is a fixed date, even if the date for the contact course changes. Students must arrange their own transport to and from the practical course. Students are welcome to contact the contact person for the relevant practical course three weeks before the practical course for contact details of fellow students in order to arrange lis to the practical contact course. Students are also responsible for their own accommodation and meals during practicals. However, at certain practicals accommodation and/or meals are organised by UNISA. This information and costs will be available at D1.

Work-integrated learning

NB Read these notes together with the general instructions for work-integrated learning in section 4 par. 1.2. Work-integrated learning takes place under the guidance of approved mentors within the animal health and veterinary public health industry at either governmental or non-governmental services. Employees enrolled by their employers should enquire from their employers whether they are accredited (approved) by Unisa to offer practical and work-integrated learning (See list of recent accredited directorates) This must be done BEFORE registration for the work-integrated learning subject. Work-integrated learning involves all the competencies and skills that students must acquire in their experiential service period (minimum 6 months) within the animal health industry. On registration students will receive a manual and a log-book for work-integrated learning which will enable them to structure and complete their work-integrated learning according to the requirements laid down by the animal health industry. Students are expected, inter alia, to plan and execute specific projects under the guidance of the approved mentor. The student must submit a detailed report for each completed project, which is then evaluated formally. More information regarding the approval of a mentor may be obtained from the lecturer. The practical experience of candidates will be assessed according to the completion of tasks prescribed in the logbook sheets of the Logbook for Work-integrated Learning and information on their ability to apply their theoretical knowledge in practice. Candidates, who have worked for at least three years as Animal Health Technicians in the field of veterinary services, may be accredited for work-integrated learning.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONAL DATES, COSTS AND VENUES FOR PRACTICAL CONTACT CLASSES: Please note that at the time of printing of this calendar arrangements for practical contact courses were not yet finalised The dates are provisional and subject to change. Students must register for a practical course when they register for their other subjects to indicate that they plan to aend the practical even though it may only be offered later in the year.

communities and farmers, veterinarians and the scientific world in Southern Africa. Furthermore, they will be able to support the state and private sectors of animal health in Southern Africa by effectively select and apply essential procedures, operations and techniques. The general employability of the students will be strongly enhanced. The possibility for students to specialise in a particular field of expertise and the emphasis that is given to management as well as research maers will qualify them to perform in senior positions in their profession. The purpose of the qualification is to provide animal health professionals with an integrated and effective mix of skills and knowledge in the field of animal health that builds on prior graduate level knowledge, skills and competence. As part of an animal health team the graduates of the qualification will be able to deal with unfamiliar problems and issues using evidence based solutions and therefore be able to apply their skills and knowledge effectively and very specifically in the preventive and curative medical care of animals and related fields. As they are able to present and communicate information effectively, graduates will be able to assist and advise livestock farmers on all levels within their field of specialisation. They will also be able to liaise with other role-players in the agriculture and animal health sector, like veterinary professionals and para-professionals, to solve problems that may arise in a scientific way. In so doing, they will support an important sector of fi doing agriculture on a large- and small-scale level and therefore contribute to the development of a sustainable food supply in Southern Africa.

The DATES, COSTS and OPTIONS available are all PROVISIONAL and subject to change. See table below. The D1 date indicates the date by which the full detail of the contact course will be available. Final details will be available at a specific date (called D1) for each course. Students must register for a practical contact course and Site Planning workshop when they register for their other subjects to indicate that they plan to aend the practical, even though it may only be offered later in the year. Students aending the Beginner's Practical Course should be busy with their second year of study. This is not a prerequisite for aending, merely a Unisa recommendation. Students who have completed some of the theory have an advantage because they understand the terminology and some theory behind the practical skills demonstrated. Students aending the advanced practical course must have successfully passed the subject Site Planning I (SIT141R). Ideally students should be busy with part 2 or 3 of their studies. Please note: Some of the practical contact courses are offered more than once. Use the subject code next to the date and venue you would like to aend when you register for the practical contact course. The different last leer indicates the different venues, e.g. PRA001G for Gauteng, PRA001K for Kwa-Zulu Ntal, PRA001N for Limpopo and PRA001W for Western Cape. It is COMPULSORY for ALL students to aend and pass ONE SITE PLANNING WORKSHOP as well as ONE BEGINNER'S and ONE ADVANCED practical course during the course of their studies. Students must register for the compulsory workshop (SIT001) when registering for the subject Site Planning I (SIT141R). Final information about the Site Planning Workshop is available in the tutorial leer that students receive when they register for the subject Site Planning 1 (SIT141R).

NOTE:

The PRA001 and PRA002 practical contact courses are presented over five consecutive days. The SIT001 practical contact courses are presented over three consecutive days. NB Unisa generally recommends that ideally students aending the Beginner's Practical Course should be busy with their second year of study. All practical contact courses are presented in English only We plan to hold a Beginner's and an Advanced practical contact course each year in Gauteng. In order to present a practical contact course in Durban, Limpopo or the Western Cape, we need to have a minimum of 10 students in order to make the course viable. Unisa reserves the right to amend, supplement or cancel any information contained below without prior notice. Please note that the practicals will only be presented if there are a minimum of 10 students. Registrations for practical contact courses are valid for one year only. Students who do not aend in the year that they are registered for will not be refunded and will have to register for the practical contact course in the following year. In the instance where Unisa cancels the
