International accreditation of Unisa’s qualifications
One way for the accreditation of Unisa’s qualifications in foreign countries with an established Qualifications Authority is for the two qualification authorities involved to negotiate the mutual recognition and accreditation of each other’s qualifications.
In other cases, the publication of an institutions name in specific authoritative publications forms the basis of accreditation. Unisa is inter alia listed in the International Handbook of Universities published by the United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and officially verified by the International Association of Universities.
Students must, however, enquire from the specific foreign country/university whether Unisa’s qualifications are accredited/recognised.
