Welcome to UNi4 Online
You can find information about the accreditation and credits for your chosen course on the course's Product page. Before making a purchase, it's important to be aware of the course's accreditation, industry endorsement, external registration, and any exam requirements. Our Student Advisors will guide you through the purchase process and help regarding all the course requirements, particularly for conditional courses.
It's important to note that the accreditation
of the Brand-partner you choose to buy your course from is crucial. UNi4 Online
ensures that the respective Brand-partner's accreditation with the relevant
educational authority is in place. They make it easy for you to access this
information by providing a link on the Brand-partner's page and/or on the
product you purchased. This allows you to conveniently reference and verify
You've chosen the Debit Order option, which
will kick in on a specific date and get the funds from your bank account. Just
make sure you accept the DebiCheck mandate, as it ensures smooth and uninterrupted
service by ensuring regular payments. It's important to have enough funds in
your account before the debit order date to avoid any issues. Remember, if
there are payment failures, there might be some penalty costs involved. So,
let's keep it cool and make sure everything goes smoothly!
A. Accessing your Programme
To get started with the program, you'll want to have a specific email address ready to go. This will be the username you'll use to access everything. Besides that, make sure you have a computer, laptop, or tablet handy, along with a reliable internet connection. It would be helpful if you can read PDFs using Adobe PDF Reader, use Microsoft Excel, view PowerPoint presentations, and create and read documents in Microsoft Word.
B. Programme Fees
If someone else is covering the cost of your online short learning program, that person or organisation will have to follow all the rules and conditions mentioned in these Terms. If you're under 18, you'll need to get written consent and help from your parents or legal guardian before you can agree to these terms or sign up for an online short learning program. To make sure we follow all the necessary laws, our academic department will handle your registration separately.
Debit Order Mandate
We utilise a debit order service called Debicheck, this service requires customers to electronically authenticate collections by approving their debit order mandate. As a result, the debit order can be collected from your account without being disputed.
A Debit Order can be a convenient payment plan however it is crucial to ensure that you can comfortably afford this arrangement. Any payment failures will result in additional administrative work and will therefore incur a penalty fee of R100 per failed debit order.
Failure to make a Payment.
Failure to pay an instalment towards your Course Fees by the agreed-upon due date (as discussed during registration and specified in your invoice), will result in suspension of your participation in the program. While you are under suspension, you will not be able to access the Learning Environment until you clear the outstanding instalment.
We reserve the right to cancel your
registration and remove you from the course should you not rectify your arrear
account with 14 days. Unfortunately, no refund will be granted in such a situation.
C. Cancellations and Refunds
Should you wish to cancel your registration for the programme, you need to formally request a cancellation. A request for cancellation must be substantiated with a reason and relevant supporting documents. A designated Retention Officer will be appointed, and they will be happy to chat with you about your intention to cancel and help you make an informed decision. Should you decide to proceed with the cancellation, your Retention Officer is your point-of-contact.

touch with us immediately. We have you
covered, don’t fail to pay, we can always work it out. Our philosophy is aligned with PASA’s

both want you to complete your course successfully. You are making this agreement, now you should
honour it. Honour your agreement, honour
your debit order and be respected.
If you have problems, it is better to contact us to make arrangements that to be dishonourable. To honour your debit order and be respected, there are a few things you should plan:
1. Make money available in your account to cover the amount of the correct debit order, or
2. Contact us to try and make a different payment arrangement other than what you have in place according to the debit order mandate you have given, or
3. Cancel the debit order mandate in the correct way if you are unable to or unwilling to pay the monthly amount.

We'll then review your request and propose flexible options. Use this option especially when you have trouble making payments. Note that your request must be reasonable and executable, and we do reserve the right to a final decision.
If any deferral charge is payable, your Student Success Coordinator will discuss that with you so that you are aware of all your obligations.
