I have had numerous queries about studying Graphic Design at UNISA. So, for those of you who would like to know more here is some information to get you started.
UNISA does not offer a degree or diploma in Graphic Design. What they do offer is a Degree of Bachelor of Arts (Culture and Arts) with specialisation in Multimedia Studies. This Degree has a distinctive contemporary art focus and students are required to do practical painting, drawing and sculpture as part of the course.
|Qualification stream:||Multimedia Studies: Multimedia in Digital Visual Arts|
|Qualification code:||02305 – MMD|
- The first step is to apply for a student number. For application dates visit www.unisa.ac.za/myChoice
- Submission of portfolio of artworks and completed questionnaire (PDF) to obtain a “permission slip” (accepted all year, student number required). All applicants receive a student number in admission phase in Step 1
- Registration website: www.unisa.ac.za/registration
Prospective students must keep in mind that they have to attend TWO workshops for every practical module they enrol for. This is a requirement of the university and the department. Workshops and exam assessments are done in Pretoria, Cape Town and Durban only.
