Unisa is now giving away data to students and you don’t have to do much to get it! Students only have until 17 October 2020 so hurry up before it’s too late and you miss your chance to get free data! All you need to do is update your contact information to redeem.
Unisa made students aware of the following:
As a currently registered Unisa student living in South Africa, you will receive 30GB per month (10 anytime and 20GB night owl) for the period 19 October 2020 to 18 December 2020 on the cellphone number Unisa has on record for you.
This data would be there so that students can upload their assignments and do their online exams without any issues concerning data and connectivity.
Students are urged to make sure that their cellphone numbers are correct on their myUnisa so that they can benefit from the data.

Students have until Saturday 17 October at 08:00 to update their details to redeem the data. Thereafter, the list of numbers will be taken to serve as a master reference for Mobile Network Operators to activate the data.
Your current and existing network provider will be used to allocate the data. You will need to opt in and request the Unisa offer via your own Mobile Network Operator.
Students who have mobile contracts via Mobile Virtual Network Operators such as FNB or Standard Bank will need to enquire with their service provider to find out who the Mobile Network Operator is, if they do not know. Some students may have ported to another Mobile Network Operator, keeping their original number and having forgotten about it.
Unisa will be hosting a Student Funding Virtual Indaba on 16 October at 09:30.
The Curriculum Transformation Unit, in collaboration with the Dean of Students, the Department of Finance and Department of Planning and Quality Assurance, invites Unisa students to a virtual indaba to discuss their student funding experiences.
Unisa is asking the question, ‘How can we ensure quality student funding experiences for our students?’. The aim of the indaba is therefore to provide a platform for students to interact with the custodians of student funding with a view to improving current practices at Unisa.
