Choosing modules for your next registration

Before you choose your modules for next semester, make sure that you understand your qualification’s curriculum. We recommend that you create a document for yourself to capture how you plan to complete your qualification and to check that you understand the rules for your qualification. If you are unsure about your curriculum, contact the Unisa regional centre closest to you for advice.

  • Reflect on how you managed this semester. Did you manage the number of modules you took? Or do you need to make adjustments either in terms of the number of modules or how you approach your studies?
  • Find your qualification’s curriculum on the Unisa website and mark the modules you’ve already passed.
  • Select the module(s) for which you plan to register during the next semester. Check that you meet the pre-requisites and co-requisites for your chosen modules, and ensure that your selected modules fall within the curriculum.
  • Check the provisional examination timetable to make sure that the modules you choose don’t clash in terms of examination dates.
  • Add or change modules accordingly.

How many modules should you register for?

Before you decide on the number of modules to take, think about the following:

  • Your time: You will need between 6 and 8 hours per week for each semester module and between 4 and 6 hours per week for each year module. How many hours do you have available to study in a week? Take into account your other commitments, such as working, spending time with family and friends, and participating in sport and community activities. Then divide this total number of hours by 8 – this will give you an idea of the number of modules you should be able to manage. If you have too little time to study, you may need to start thinking about where you are able to sacrifice so that you could complete your qualification in a reasonable period of time.
  • Minimum number of modules: You need to pass a minimum of 36 credits in your first year of study and then 48 credits in your second and further years of study. For example, in your first year of study, you pass one module of 12 credits during the first semester and two modules of 12 credits each during the second semester. This means that you have completed 36 credits for the year and may re-register. Click here to read more about Unisa’s re-admission rules.
