UNISA RECOGNITION (SA PUBLIC UNIVERSITIES)
Unisa does not necessarily give automatic credits for ICB subjects, however they too (like us) have a RPL - Recognition of Prior learning department and they evaluate each application individually and on personal merit. So, if you have completed a level 6 qualification from anyone of our program streams you may submit an application to Unisa. Unisa will evaluate your application and determine if the qualification you have versus the one you are applying for can be given credits or serve as an entry into the Unisa qualification you are applying for. There is no guarantee that you will be accepted into Unisa though.
