For those who see the distance in open and distance learning, Unisa’s Science Campus in Florida, Johannesburg may come as a surprise. This is a hands-on, face-to-face facility where students and researchers work in purpose-built laboratories, equipped with the finest apparatus and equipment available. Whatever your stage of education, we have the expertise to take you to the top.
UNISA is well established in the higher education market and have gained a reputation as a leader in computing.
Unisa’s ODeL (open distance e-learning) model makes it possible for students to enrol for science-related qualifications wherever they are. In the natural sciences, theory and practice go hand-in-hand, and students are therefore, required to complete scheduled practical sessions as part of their studies. Fortunately, Unisa students are able to do this in the stimulating environment of the Science Campus. Working in tandem, the ODeL model and Unisa’s modern Science Campus are opening doors for thousands of students who might not otherwise have had the opportunity to follow their dream of studying in the sciences.
The Science Campus’s modern facilities and laboratory equipment position Unisa as one of the most advanced institutions not only in the country and the African continent, but globally as well. Attracting students and researchers from all over the world and having such equipment not only boosts its research output but also ensures that the University takes centre stage in accelerating Africa’s development.
