Unisa Extends Assignment Due Dates
The University Of South Africa (Unisa) has announced new deadlines for the extension of semester one assignments. This has been a much anticipated announcement from the university, after students were negatively impacted by the new online system.
Earlier this year Unisa moved to postpone the due dates of assignments as the university battled technical difficulties with its new online system. This resulted in the inability of students to submit their assignments on due dates.
Unisa says that management has taken the decision to extend the all assignment due dates that were due before 8 April 2022.
The university said, “This is to provide additional opportunity to those students who have experienced challenges in their submissions and were unable to successfully submit their assignments. Students can expect to view their new extended dates from 12 April 2022”.
Unisa however acknowledges that some lecturers have made alternative arrangements to students through assignment electives.
The university said that assignments falling under these categories will be closed off by lecturers and students must continue submitting through elective assignments.
Unisa added, “The extension of assignment due dates will be done on a staggered basis with the first closing date of the extension starting 16 April 2022 and ending by 27 April 2022. The first semester examination timetable will be made available on the Unisa Examination Timetable Tool and will be available as from 15 April 2022”
The first examination period is set to commence on 16 May 2022.
The automated extension will not however apply to all students as some courses are unique in their assessment studies.
The automotive extension will not include Graduate School of Business Leadership, School of Engineering, CTA and Signature courses modules. These students must visit their course sites to view their due dates.
Unisa has thanked students for their patience as they work through the challenges.

Unisa extends assignment due dates after online portal crashes
Unisa has extended its assignment due dates after its online portal, used by students to submit their work, crashed.
- University of South Africa
JOHANNESBURG - Unisa has extended its assignment due dates after its online portal, used by students to submit their work, crashed.
With deadlines looming, students have been struggling to submit their work on the "mymodules 2022 portal" after the university implemented a new learning management system to replace the old, glitchy one.
However, this led to inaccessible study material, unstable connectivity and missed deadlines.
The institution's spokesperson Victor Dlamini has since apologised to staff and students for the inconvenience.

Unisa extends assignment due dates at start of academic year
- April 14, 2021
The University of South Africa (Unisa) has announced a blanket extension for the submissions of first assignments.
“Due to the extended registration date, the university will allow the submission of all assignments until 12 May 2021 where the due date of such assignments are before 12 May 2021. This does not apply to modules offered by the School of Business Leadership (SBL). The due dates of assignments scheduled later than 12 May are not affected by this extension,” the announcement reads .
The first assignments for Unisa modules are usually very important for the studies of students. Submission of first assignments before the due date are sometimes a requirement even if they do not contribute to the final mark for that module. Failure to submit on time can also sometimes lead to the student automatically failing that module and / or not being granted access to write exams.
Some students found themselves with little time to submit their assignments as registration closed very recently on 31st March . Just yesterday the university released a welcome message to new and returning students to kick off the academic year in earnest .
Being told “welcome to the school” so close to critical due dates for assignments is a little shocking to say the least.
These close dates are on top of many other problems both at Unisa and outside of it. Unisa has been experiencing problems delivering study materials , for example, and the COVID-19 pandemic continues to ravage the country as vaccinations trickle into South Africa.
“Although we have extended the due date for assignment submission, we urge all students who are able, to submit their assignments as soon as possible to reach the university before 12 May 2021,” the announcement ends.

UNISA Assignment Due Dates Extended 2022 – Check Full Details Here
The University of South Africa (UNISA) has recently announced that they intend to implement a new learning management system in an effort to resolve existing issues with the old system.
Thus, the university will be extending assignment due dates when the system is fully operational. UNISA further states that in doing so, they have taken the following considerations into account:
- UNISA has acknowledged that students may not have had access to their study material leading up to their assignment submission;
- Some students do not have access to their module sites due to late registration;
- Certain assignments are fully online, and students were not able to complete their assignments offline; and
- Some students were not able to submit complete responses as their connectivity was interrupted.
To guarantee that the academic assessment plan is implemented as intended, the due dates for all Semester 1 assignments will be extended in a staggered manner.
In addition to this, UNISA has also stated that all other matters will be attended to, while their project team is still working to restore myModules 2022 sites back to functionality.
Extended assignment submission deadlines will be communicated to students through their myModules 2022 sites, once the system is fully operational.

UNISA Assignments General Writing Guide
Planning your assignment will help you get focused and keep you on track.
ANALYZE THE QUESTION:
Before you can answer a question, you need to know what it means. Read it slowly and carefully, and try to understand what’s expected of you. Ask yourself:
- What’s the question about? What’s the topic?
- What does the question mean?
- What do I have to do?
DRAFT AN OUTLINE:
Drafting an outline will give you a structure to follow when it comes to writing your assignment. The type of assignment you are doing will give you a broad structure, but you should also check the question and marking schedule, as they will help you understand how the lecturer expects the topic to be structured, what must be included, and which sections are worth the most marks.
From there you can create your outline, using headings and gaps for the information you have to fill in.
Most of the assignments you will have to do are essays, which generally follow the same basic structure:
- Introduction (+ 10% of the assignment)
- Discussion (+ 80% of the assignment)
- Conclusion (+ 10% of the assignment)
Before you start writing, you need to research your topic and find relevant and reliable information. You will find some in your course materials and recommended readings, but you can also try:
- the Open Polytechnic Library.
- your local public library.
- talking to experts.
- online sources.
Once you’ve found the information you need it’s time to bring it all together and write your assignment.
EDIT AND PROOFREAD:
Once you’ve written your assignment, you can improve it by editing and proofreading, but before you do take a break. Even a short break helps you to get some distance from your work so that you can check your assignment with a fresh eye.
