  1. I am Nyasha dziva in full names a Zimbabwean national who applied on 8th for second semester 2014 admission process.My passport number is DN291419.I am kindly asking u to make a crosscheck for my application as for whether it was approved successful or unsuccessful because I didn’t get an email yet of notification of approval .The reason why I am asking is I doubt if my application Bcom Accounting Sciences was to be unsuccessful because of my acardemic results I scored at both advanced level and Ordinary level.I passed all of the subjects I did at school from primary to secondary and higher secondary certificate I never missed one which makes me to worry so much if my application was approved unsuccessful.


    1. you will have to wait a little while longer to get a reply from unisa. you can expect a reply via sms or email. it can take longer than a month sometimes. be patient

    Hi,I wanna apply to study LLB at unisa for the 2nd Semester,I’ve never applied before.and this will be my first application to you since I’ve completed school,what are my chances of getting in?, what do I need to do,and do you have any financial aid in the faculty of Law?#please respond #urgent


    1. I am not unisa. But from what I understand you need a 50 percent pass in English and a matric certificate. If you apply on time (before the 27th of April 2015) and get accepted you must register. You could apply to do the llb only. But I suggest you apply to do the Ba psychology and law or the business and law degree and then change streams once you have passed about 2 years worth of llb modules . The llb may be phased out soon.


  7. If you paid your application fee using a debit card at unisa accounts do u have to fax the recipt you got?


    1. you shouldnt have to.,. the lady at the terminal should have done that. but u can if you want to

    hi there…My name is lee…i am A Zimbabwean guy…i just wanna know what matric subjects do i need inorder for me to do LLB at Unisa

    thnk you


    1. 50% in english…. matric certificate with university exemption. If you dont have a exemption and you above the age of 23 you can get an age exemption and pay 450 Rand for it. If you are still under 23 Unisa has other avenues for you to enter the llb. My advice to you would be to do a BA law or BCOM Law, many firms prefer a person with other skills not just legal theory. good luck


  9. Hi, I applied to study LLB at Unisa to my surprise my acceptance letter stated I was accepted for higher certificate in law. Did they make a mistake or what? Please anyone advice.
