Business Studies, 2021
Overall
I was looking forward to a great time studying at UNISA because it  has been a very long time since I last studied. However I was pleasantly surprised that I didn't have t go to campus everyday but only sometimes because we had to do all our assignments online which was a good refresher of many skills such as Excel, Publisher, and other software in Microsoft. It was very exciting because we got to know about the latest technologies such as AI, Cloud, and other applications such as global company trade simulations with stock trade and also about Logistics, Operational management and so on. In general the academic staff was on par with their knowledge and very informative.

Overall a great experience!

Law, Criminal / Criminology, 2019
Overall
I have completed two honours degrees through UNISA, and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience both times. Though it is challenging to study through a distance learning institution due to motivation and discipline sometimes lacking, I loved that I was able to study around my work schedule, and complete assignments in my own time. I would hihgly recommend UNISA!

Flexibility; ability to study from anywhere in the world; significantly cheaper than other universities
Cons
Not as personal as other institutions; no physical classes, so self-discipline is a must

Overall
Being a full time Analyst at a Global Listed Company,  I unfortunately have very little time on my hands, however Unisa has given me the option of distance studying. This will enable me to reach for my goals at my own pace and also assist me to achieve them.
