Career guidance is helpful before settling on a study program, that is why it is important to know the modules required to complete your studies. For you to graduate, UNISA dictates that for each qualification, you must pass a specific number of modules and NQF level credits within a specific period of time. Each academic year, there is a minimum number of modules/credits that you have to pass so as to re-register and proceed to the next level of your qualification. It is therefore important for learners to be aware of the UNISA modules/credits under the qualification that they are pursuing.
