Studying at UNISA

Long distance learning comes with the challenges and stresses of not having a physical classroom, lack of support, feelings of loneliness and isolation, as well as struggling with discipline, Skills Academy states.

According to UNISA, you need to take some time to think about how you will commit to the study process and what you need to put in place to focus on your studies. The institution also offers helpful tips and tools to assist students.

Gabi shares insight on her studies

Gabi told Briefly News that she chose this institution mainly because UNISA is an open-distance eLearning institution which allows students the flexibility to complete coursework in your time.

"This allows you to prioritise your career, family and other responsibilities that keep you busy. I was also inspired by my mother who graduated at the age of 42 years, Mrs MP Dlamini, who is currently a teacher at eNaleni High school."
