www.unisa.ac.za Job Vacancies (40 Recruitment positions)

In January 2004, the former Unisa merged with Technikon Southern Africa and incorporated the distance education component of Vista University (Vudec) to form the new Unisa. The merger brought together vast resources and infrastructure, while consolidating the knowledge bases built up over the years by the three former institutions.

Legal establishment: On 1 January 2004, the new Unisa officially came into being through the merger of the former University of South Africa and Technikon Southern Africa with the incorporation of the Vista University Distance Education Campus, Vudec.

Inaugural meeting of the Interim Council: On 5 January 2004, the Interim Council approved the structure of the academic units within the new Unisa, resulting in the creation of five new colleges.

Official launch: The new Unisa was officially launched on 28 January 2004 at a function attended by 500 guests. The keynote speaker was Prof Kader Asmal, then Minister of Education.
