Durban - The University of South Africa (UNISA) will be extending their registration period for all undergraduate qualifications; higher certificates, diplomas and degrees, advanced certificates, advanced diplomas, BTech degrees and postgraduate certificates, to Monday February 17.

The decision to extend the registration period was taken to ensure that students are not disadvantaged by the recent strike action experienced at Unisa.

As a result of the late registration the delivery of hard-copy study material will be delayed. However, Unisa students will be able to access their study material via the myUnisa platform once their registration has been finalised.

Students whose registration has not yet been finalised can access their official study material via the following link: https://myadmin.unisa.ac.za/tool/af040db7-120b-4090-a500-19357ea638f1/default.do.

Unisa students should take note that because of the late registration the semester will be shorter, thus leaving less time to complete assignments and prepare for examinations. The due dates for compulsory assignments will be communicated to students shortly.

The university apologised for any inconvenience its students might have experienced during the recent strike.

On Thursday, Unisa announced that they had reached an agreement with trade unions, National Education, Health and Allied Workers' Union and the Academic and Professional Staff Association which led to the suspension of the strike.

The parties have also agreed to reconvene for mediation within 72 hours from the conclusion of the agreement; in a bid to resolve the dispute on the 2020 salary increases.

The conclusion of the agreement effectively means that all striking employees are required to report for duty with immediate effect.
