About this course

Apply for Bachelor of Visual Arts at UNISA

Prospective students must obtain prior permission from the Department of Art History, Visual Arts and Musicology on 0124296798 before registering for the degree. In addition to the normal study fees, a studio fee is payable for each module in Drawing, Painting, Sculpture and Visual Arts. Students are expected to attend two workshops at one of the university’s approved centres. Workshops are normally conducted at least twice a year, for a period of approximately three to five days each, in Cape Town, Durban and Pretoria. Further details are sent to students early in the year. Students are strongly advised to attend all the days of each workshop presented for their particular modules as these are important modes of tuition. Please note: these practical subjects demand much of a student’s time and the equipment and materials required are expensive. The university will not be responsible for any loss or damage to a student’s work. The Department reserves the right to retain the student’s practical and written work for study material, teaching purposes and/or for exhibitions.Admission and re-admission requirements
