Rules:
* The College has replaced DTM1502 with SUS1501, replaced DTM2602 withTRT2601, replaced DTM3702 with TRT3702, and replaced DTM3606 + DTM3607 with DTM3609. The name of module DTM3701 has been changed from MICE Operations to Business Tourism. Students who have already passed DTM1502, DTM2602, DTM3606 +DTM3607, DTM3701 and/or DTM3702 in this qualification, will retain the credit(-s) and will not be required to complete the relevant replacement module(-s). However, please note that DTM3606 or DTM3607 may still be completed during 2017 by those students that have completed only one of the two modules. As these two modules are replaced by one module from 2017, students will need both these credits to be exempt from DTM3609 after 2017.*Students should note that during the course of their studies they would be required to have access to a computer, printer and the internet.
This qualification will be presented using both online and distance learning modes.

Who can register?

Successful applicants and re-registering students must register to study through Unisa in 2016. Applicants can only begin the registration process if they have received an official approval of their application from Unisa. Re-registering students can begin the registration process after receiving their registration details from Unisa. Should you wish to change to an alternative qualification, please apply for the alternative qualification during the next application period.



How to choose your modules

Each Unisa qualification is structured in such a way that you need to pass a certain number of modules within a certain amount of time in order to graduate. You must pass a minimum number of credits / modules annually so that you are able to re-register and continue with your qualification:



  • At least 36 NQF credits (3 modules of 12 credits each) in your first year of study;
  • At least 48 NQF credits (4 modules of 12 credits each) in your second or further years of study.

You may not register for more than the allowed maximum number of credits / modules per semester:

  • At least 60 NQF credits (5 modules of 12 credits each) in a semester;
  • At least 120 NQF credits (10 modules of 12 credits each) per year for year modules.

The maximum number of credits do not include supplementary and/or aegrotat examinations from a previous semester. Modules taken for non-degree/non-diploma purposes also count towards the maximum number of credits allowed.
You must take your available time into consideration when choosing your modules, as this will impact your academic performance. You need approximately:



  • 6 to 8 hours per week for semester modules;
  • 4 to 6 hours per week for year modules.
