Unisa Degrees Recognised Internationally

Unisa is internationally recognized to the extent that it has students from different parts of the world. The question whether you might be required to take some sort of test in the host country if you go and work overseas doesn’t necessarily speak to the international recognition of the institution you studied at. Often it speaks to different curricula designs in the different countries.

In SA, for instance, there’s an authority which evaluates all foreign qualifications. If, say, you did your first degree in the USA and you wish to do your Masters at a South African university, your initial degree might need to be evaluated by the South African Qualifications Authority. But the reason isn’t because SA doesn’t recognize US qualifications. Rather, the reason is to check whether in your initial degree you did everything which is required for you to do advanced studies in that area in a South African university. If you haven’t, you might be required to do a bridging course.

If you apply for a job which requires a particular degree in a particular country, I would imagine that pretty much the same consideration applies: the employer might want to know that the curriculum design of the university you studied at matches the criteria the employer had in mind when stipulating the particular degree as a requirement for the job.

And then I can add that the job you want to go and do overseas might also be a factor. Different countries have different legal systems. Getting a legal qualification in one country might not qualify you to work in another country without the need to do some bridging courses.
