    Question UNISA-University of South Africa

    Is anyone currently taking coursework through UNISA? I wish to know if universities and accrediting bodies in the USA recognize them. During the Reagan years and apartheid I was advisedby American univerisyt counselorsnot to take courses through them, but I sent away for their syllabi and reading lists and showed them to some instructors. They thought the required readings were sound and the same thing they would have students read. Your thoughts, please. Thanks!

    I was seriously considering UNISA's Doctor of Business Leadership degree last year. I ran UNISA by the admissions office at the RA-AACSB University I teach at. I was told UNISA is considered equal to RA.

    I was accepted to the program but must put my plans on hold for now.

    There are several people on the forum engaged in study through UNISA. Searching the UNISA threads will give you the best list. Charles has been helpful to many (including myself) who have had questions regarding his experience with this school and you might consider sending him a personal message with specific questions. In general, my impression is that this is an acceptable school and that access to programs has improved over the past several years. They offer a remarkable range of degree programs and the cost is better than anywhere else in the world (for RA equivalent, English speaking, 100% non-residential foreign universities)
