UNISA School Fees and Banking Details 2022

University of South Africa (UNISA) Fee Structure Saves as Fees Guide to help the student of the institution through the payment processes.

UNISA School Fees

Unisa’s study fees are generally lower than other higher education institutions, but studying is still a significant investment either way. The cost depends on the qualification, obviously, as well as the number of modules you choose.

The average student registers for between 4 and 6 modules per year at a cost of between *R1 665,00 and *R4 835,00 per module (*these amounts are subject to change). The module costs do not include your prescribed books. Books are an additional cost that you must factor into your calculations for your full costs of study.

UNISA Payment Method – Unisa Banking Details

Debit card payments are accepted if you pay or register in person at any Unisa Regional offices.

Credit Cards
