Are we able to enroll to start this year?
I’m looking at doing the Higher Certificate in insurance.
Higher Certificate in Insurance
Students who have already passed MNM1502 in this qualification will retain the credit and will not be required to complete BNU1501. Students should note that during the course of their studies they would be required to have access to a computer, printer and the internet.
The typical learner who will enroll for this Higher Certificate will either be employed by short term insurance companies and insurance brokers. This course will specifically fulfil the Insurance Institutes’ requirement for membership on a general membership level. Learners not presently employed in the insurance industry, but who may want to obtain the credits attached to the Higher Certificate in order to obtain employment in the insurance industry will also benefit to enroll for the qualification. The Higher Certificate enhances the employability of learners in the sense that the successful completion of the certificate enables them to become short-term insurance practitioners with a good introductory understanding of the legal framework within which short-term insurance business is conducted, commercial insurance products and practice, transportation insurance and risk management. In addition, all intermediaries in the insurance industry who offer ‘advice’ on products need to be in possession of suitable academic qualifications and this Higher Certificate is in line with part of such requirements.
This qualification will be presented using both online and distance learning modes.
Qualification offered until 2023, and ONLY for students previously registered for this qualification.
Who can register?
- Applicants may only register once they have received confirmation from Unisa that their application for admission has been accepted. Unisa reserves the right to not process and / or to cancel your registration if it is found that you were incorrectly admitted to a qualification. Admission to the alternative qualification is not automatic. It will depend on whether you comply with admission requirements and if space is available.
- Re-registering students may register for the 2021 academic year once the registration period opens.
Please note: Should you wish to start a new qualification, please apply online for the alternative qualification during the prescribed application period.
