1 UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH AFRICA UNISA S NEW APPLICATION AND REGISTRATION PHASES APPLICATION PHASE First-time students at UNISA must apply for admission on the prescribed form which is to be submitted together with the correct application fees, as well as the documents required for registration. Apply on-line: Default.asp?Cmd=ViewContent&ContentID=16832 or contact the UNISA Contact Centre at / Once the data has been recorded the system will allocate a student number which will be confirmed via , sms or mail depending on the contact details indicated on your application form. A registration package containing the relevant information brochure(s) and registration form will be mailed to you. Students who already have a UNISA student number proceed directly to the registration phase. REGISTRATION PHASE Once a student number has been allocated to an individual, this student number will remain his/her student number at UNISA for all formal qualifications Honours students may apply on-line for registration after the registration period for the particular academic year has opened. However, master s and doctoral students cannot apply on-line and are advised to submit their applications directly to UNISA Muckleneuk Campus, P O Box 392, UNISA, Regional offices can only forward master s and doctoral applications to the Muckleneuk Campus. i

2 The registration form together with the minimum instalment required for registration must be submitted before the relevant closing date. Students must please take note that certain degrees are by selection and have earlier closing dates than the normal registration closing dates. Any documents required for registration submitted must be included here, if not previously submitted. Kindly note that only certified copies of academic records issued by the Registrar of the University/Institution concerned are accepted for registration purposes. Degree certificates should not be submitted. All applications for master s and doctoral degrees will be referred to the Section: Postgraduate Qualifications where they will be assessed before being referred to the relevant academic department where the Executive Committee will rule on admission. If approved, students who have submitted their complete application (i.e. all required documents and minimum fees) will automatically be registered after admission has been approved. Other students will be informed of any remaining conditions to be complied with in order to finalise their registration. All other students will be informed of the outcome of their applications and, where applicable, the minimum study fees paid will be refunded. The process outlined above may be time consuming in some cases, especially when we approach the various closing dates when most applications are invariably submitted. It is, therefore, essential that prospective students apply well in advance, especially where deadlines set by employers and sponsors have to be met. ii

8 1. THE HONOURS BCom AND HONOURS BAdmin DEGREE IN TRANSPORT ECONOMICS 1.1 THE STRUCTURE OF THE DEGREE The curriculum consists of the following alternatives: (a) (b) Five * written papers selected from section 1 (see paragraph 8.) Four *written papers selected from section 1 and a report on a research project (TRRESPD). 1.2 OBJECTIVE OF THE HONOURS BCom AND HONOURS BAdmin DEGREE In our present era mention is often made of a changing world, and, indeed, perhaps nowadays changes are taking place faster than ever before. The rate at which transport economics is developing is certainly one of the more important factors contributing to the rapid changes. The changes are mainly of a transport economic and technological nature. Particularly where new industries have been established these give rise to an ever-changing demand for transport. This involves not only the availability of transport services, but also speedier and more efficient transport services. In this process of development and progress there is naturally also a constant evolution of transport. * Students may choose an Honours paper in a related subject (eg Business Management) in which they have passed the final course with the approval of the heads of the departments concerned. 2

9 Increasing competition and costs throughout the modern business world especially as regards transport, have contributed to the fact that the study of transport has developed into a recognised field of study. In practice, experience plays a vital part in the transport field, but the efficiency of practitioners ultimately depends on systematic training and a sound, scientific background. For the above reasons the University of South Africa offers tuition in Transport Economics as a two-year major subject or as a specialised study field. Students can now follow an Honours BCom degree or an Honours BAdmin degree in Transport Economics and the following papers can be taken, viz Urban Transport, Transport Management, Transport Planning and Development, Integrated Logistics Management and Transport Financing and Marketing. The purpose hereof is to promote specialised training and research in theory and practice in transportation. New papers and fields, and the content of the papers are being continually evaluated and adapted to changing circumstances and needs. 1.3 ADMISSION TO THE DEGREE (a) Admission to the studies for the Honours BCom degree in Transport Economics To qualify for admission students must - (i) hold a BCom degree and have passed Transport Economics on third-year level; or (ii) be in possession of another degree and have passed the following five BCom courses: 3

10 Transport Economics I and II, Economics I, Business Management I and Accounting I; or (iii) have obtained the Certificate in the Theory of Accounting at a recognised university and have qualified for or be in possession of the CA(SA) and have passed Economics I, Business Management I and Transport Economics on third-year level. (b) Admission to the studies for the Honours BAdmin degree in Transport Economics To qualify for admission students must - (i) hold a BAdmin degree and have passed Transport Economics on third-year level; or (ii) be in possession of another degree and have passed at least the following six BAdmin courses: Transport Economics I and II, Economics I, a course on second-year level in one of the subjects from Group A of the BAdmin degree, namely Development Administration, Public Administration, Municipal Government and Administration, and a first course in one of the following subjects from Group B: Accounting, Business Management, Industrial Psychology or Statistics. The University reserves the right to refuse admission to students with a poor undergraduate record, and to expect students whose degree curricula do not include certain courses, to complete such courses before commencing the honours degree. Students who completed their bachelor's degree longer than ten years ago will as a rule not be admitted to the studies for the Honours BCom or Honours BAdmin degree. 4

11 2. THE HONOURS BCom/BAdmin DEGREE IN LOGISTICS 2.1 THE STRUCTURE OF THE DEGREE The honours BCom/BAdmin degree in Logistics is offered jointly by the Department of Transport Economics and the Department of Business Management. The curriculum consists of the following alternatives: (a) (b) Five ** written papers selected from section II (see paragraph 8) Four written papers selected from section II and a report on a research project (TRRESPD). 2.2 OBJECTIVE OF THE DEGREE Since the early 1980's more and more private and public organisations worldwide realised the opportunities for improved efficiency by practising effective logistics. During the last few years the emphasis has shifted from a purely functional approach to logistics to a total supply chain management approach. These tendencies created a need for formal logistics training, resulting in universities worldwide to focus on this important field of study. UNISA did not lag behind and introduced a BCom degree with specialisation in Logistics as well as an honours degree in Logistics. ** Students may choose an Honours paper in a related subject (eg Business Management) in which they have passed the final course with the approval of the heads of the departments concerned. 5

12 The purpose of the degree is to promote specialised training and research in theory and practice in logistics where emphasis is placed on both functional and total supply chain issues. The degree offers students the opportunity to qualify in a specialised field, thereby keeping pace with the increasing demands within the logistics field. 2.3 ADMISSION TO THE DEGREE To qualify for admission, students must (i) hold a BCom degree and have passed Logistics as a major third-year level subject. (ii) be in possession of another degree and have passed at least the following courses: Logistics on third-year level, Economics I, Business Management I and Accounting I. (iii) Students who obtained a BCom degree majoring in Logistics or obtained a BCom degree with specialisation in Logistics may register for an Hons BCom degree in Logistics on condition that TRILOMG be completed before registering for TRINMA5, SCHAINY or a research project in Logistics (TRRESPD). Admission to the studies for the Honours BAdmin degree in Logistics To qualify for admission students must (i) hold a BAdmin degree and have passed Logistics on third-year level; or (ii) be in possession of another degree and have passed at least the following six BAdmin courses: Transport Economics I and II, Economics I, a 6

13 course on second-year level in one of the subjects from Group A of the BAdmin degree, namely Development Administration, Public Administration, Municipal Government and Administration, and a first course in one of the following subjects from Group B: Accounting, Business Management, Industrial Psychology or Statistics. 3. REGISTRATION AND FEES PAYABLE See and Postgraduate brochure for information in this respect. 4. STUDY GUIDES AND PRESCRIBED LITERATURE As there are no suitable textbooks for some of the honours papers the study guides are fairly complete. Selected periodical articles are however prescribed for some papers. These articles form part of the study material and will be indicated by means of a tutorial letter. A thorough knowledge of the prescribed literature and the study guides is an essential prerequisite for obtaining an insight in the subject and its problems. Therefore, both insight and factual knowledge are tested in the examination. 5. ASSIGNMENTS IN GENERAL The planning and writing of assignments constitute a very important aspect of study for the honours degree, for this because students are given an opportunity to exercise their scientific reasoning ability. Herein lays the essence of university training, and to a large measure of postgraduate education. A sound background in the form of thorough factual knowledge is, however, an essential prerequisite for a 7

14 scientific and critical study of the subject and for the development of well-thought-through independent opinions. The latter is also of great importance and value when answering assignments (and examination questions). It is usually best to attempt these assignments as soon as you have gained sufficient background via the study material. This enables us to mark and return some of your work at a relatively early stage of the year. In this way you obtain a faster feedback in the form of comments and an evaluation of your work which is reflected in your marks. Consult the relevant tutorial letters, which accompany the study guides of the papers for which you have enrolled, for the number of compulsory assignments which you are must to qualify for admission to the examinations. Assignments should be submitted before the due date direct to the Registrar and not to the Department or the lecturer concerned. You are of course welcome to make an appointment to come and see us at the office in Pretoria or make telephonic enquiries. 6. LITERATURE AND OTHER SOURCES OF STUDY Although the study guides are rather complete, students are expected to read widely and intensively. The UNISA library is well equipped, especially for postgraduate studies, and should meet your needs. In the study guides reference is often made to prescribed works for study and other literature is 8

15 recommended where necessary to give students a broad background for the completion of assignments. The library has a large collection of books and periodicals available which can be used advantageously. For the sake of general orientation students are advised to make a thorough study of the economic and business aspects appearing in our local newspapers and magazines. Please contact the library for relevant magazines. HONOURS ENQUIRIES: Telephone: International: Fax: CURRICULUM 7.1 WRITTEN PAPERS GENERAL The curriculum comprises four written papers and a report on a research project (which carries the weight of an examination paper) or alternatively five written papers. Only the study guides for the papers for which you enrol for the year concerned are forwarded to you. If you enrolled for all the papers simultaneously, all relevant study guides are forwarded. 9

16 The research project, where applicable, shall be submitted not later than the year in which students write their last written paper(s). The Head of the Honours Studies must first approve of the subject and title, nature and scope of the field study. A minimum of 50 percent must be obtained in the research project, which carries the weight of an examination paper. The examiners may recommend that the report be not accepted but that the candidate may revise it and again submit it for examination within a year. Also see regulations on research project, paragraphs to ANSWERING EXAMINATION QUESTIONS Make sure of the number of questions you are required to answer both as regards the total and the number per group if any. It is essential that you carefully read through a question several times until you understand exactly what is asked. After that it is very advisable to draw up an outline of the main points of your answer, write them down and discuss the question accordingly. This ensures that you will not omit any of the important aspects you initially wanted to cover, that your approach is systematic and that the lecturer obtains an idea beforehand of what you envisage. (The latter is also important in case you cannot complete the question in time). The outline and your answer must only relate to the question - however, do not overemphasise any subdivision at the expense of the others. You must distribute your time evenly over all the questions. Rather answer the full required number even if they are 10

17 not answered in full than to complete less than the required number. Think out your statements, opinions and motivations well and try to put them as lucidly and logically as possible. 7.2 RESEARCH PROJECT GENERAL COMMENTS ON THE RESEARCH PROJECT The purpose of the research project is to determine whether students can apply the theoretical knowledge they have acquired through their studies to practical situations. The subject and accompanying proposal must be submitted to the Head of the Honours Studies before the end of May and the report must be submitted not later than 30 November of that year. The approximate length should be to words (tables and graphs excluded). When writing a report special attention should be given to the following aspects. These must also be fully covered in your outlines NATURE OF THE RESEARCH PROJECT The research project must be empirical in nature and it must relate to practice. This means that it can assume the following forms: Research on a relevant aspect in your own working environment whereby you utilise data which has been specifically collected for this purpose or which is already available in your firm. In both cases, however, you must make an original contribution as far as the analysis and evaluation of the data is concerned. Consequently the research itself must be your own work. 11

18 In the case of research on another suitable subject outside your working environment, you may use original data (obtained by means of a survey) or other (secondary) data such as published data. Again original work is expected of you as regards the evaluation and analysis of the data OBJECTIVE OF THE RESEARCH PROJECT The subject of the research must be clearly formulated and its objective must directly relate to it. The findings of the research must be critically analysed, for example what the shortcomings are and what advantages the current set-up has. Recommendations must be made on this basis. This all forms part of the objective which consequently is directly related to the title and vice versa. The rest of the research must deal with the topic - nothing more or less. The objective must always be achieved. If not, the research literally does not fulfil its objective and students will invariably lose many marks. Therefore you must stick to your approved outline when conducting the research SCOPE OF THE RESEARCH PROJECT The scope or range of your research must be clearly demarcated before you start. This occurs in the determination of the title as well as with the description of the objective. The most suitable scope of the research must be thoroughly planned beforehand. Do not frame it too wide; otherwise the research becomes too superficial. If the scope is too narrow it means that there is insufficient material for a fully-fledged research. As a result you must go into some depth without demarcating the field 12

19 too narrowly. If you are uncertain of this aspect we are willing to assist you. The research project must not be less than and not more than words in length. This should be a guide to you to determine whether your scope is too wide or too narrow. There are still students who do not stick to these minimum and maximum requirements. Consequently, their projects are too wide or too narrow in scope which causes them to lose marks. You must, therefore, definitely abide by this stipulation METHOD OF INVESTIGATION FOR THE RESEARCH PROJECT The method(s) of investigation must be clearly described and set out in the outline. This will enable us to evaluate the method(s) thoroughly and suggest improvements before you submit the report in its final form. In the report itself you must of course also disclose the entire methodology together with any problems you experienced in this respect and how you overcame them. This forms a central part of the research - without a sound methodology as foundation, the validity of the findings cannot be determined and the project will be of little value. This is especially valid in cases where original data is collected, as for instance by means of statistical sampling methods ANALYSIS, DISCUSSIONS AND FINDINGS Data must be thoroughly and systematically analysed and discussed. This forms the largest part of the written content of the research on which the findings appearing at the end of the report are based. It is permissible to indicate findings during the course of the report but the main points thereof should be summarised again at the end. 13

20 7.2.7 CONCLUSION, RECOMMENDATIONS AND RÉSUMÉ The conclusions based on the findings and even other aspects such as problems regarding the methodology, should appear at the end of the report. It is possible to integrate the findings and conclusions - depending on the nature of the research. If the nature and objective of the research demand it, recommendations must also be made, provided that the findings justify this. The recommendations can likewise be integrated with the conclusions and findings but if the findings are important or comprehensive they should preferably appear separately and after the conclusions. For the sake of clarity you may briefly summarise the main findings, conclusions and recommendations in a résumé TABLE OF CONTENTS, BIBLIOGRAPHY AND APPENDICES The research project must contain a complete table of contents with page numbers which must appear at the beginning of the report and a bibliography of consulted works which must appear at the end of the report. In cases where use is made of a number of tables containing detailed information, these must be added in the form of an appendix at the end of the report. Only the main tables must appear in the text itself. Please number all the tables but distinguish between the two groups. Comprehensive parts which do not form an integral part like questionnaires must also appear as an appendix. The outline of the report should appear in a preliminary table of contents and should also indicate whether the report will contain appendices. 14

21 8. PAPERS The curriculum comprises, either (a) (b) four written papers and a report on a research project (TRRESPD), which carries the weight of a paper; or five written papers. The papers for the honours BCom/BAdmin degree in Transport Economics must be chosen from section 1 provided that students may choose an Honours paper in a related subject in which they have passed the final course with the approval of the heads of the departments concerned. (Particulars of the honours papers offered in the subject(s) that students offered for their other major principal subject(s) appear in the brochure(s) for the Honours course(s) concerned.) The papers for the honours BCom/BAdmin degree in Logistics must be chosen from Section II below. Students are strongly advised not to register for more than three papers in their first year of study. In highly exceptional cases the Head of the Department will consider applications from students to register for more than three papers, provided that motivated applications accompany their registration forms. In order not to delay their studies such students must indicate for which three papers they wish to register in the event of their application being unsuccessful. NB: The codes, comprising seven characters, which appear in brackets after the names of the papers, must be indicated on the registration form. 15

23 Paper 4 Supply Chain Management (SCHAINY) Paper 5 Advanced Operations Management (ADPRODE) or Advanced Strategic Marketing Issues (STRMAR6) 9. COMMUNICATIONS (VISITS AND CORRESPONDENCE) It is expected of students to make appointments annually with the heads of their respective fields of study at the beginning of the academic year if it is at all possible. You are further welcome to visit us at any time during the academic year in connection with your studies. It is advisable, however, to make an appointment with the lecturer of the relevant paper to ensure that they are available at the time of your visit. All correspondence relating to general academic matters regarding the honours course in Transport Economics or Logistics should be addressed to: The Head, Honours Studies, Department of Transport Economics or Logistics. This includes the submitting of the original outline of your research project, the submission of your completed report and general enquiries. All correspondence relating to the subject must be addressed to the lecturer concerned. All purely administrative enquiries and enquiries relating to the despatch of study material must be addressed direct to the Registrar and not to the Department or lecturer concerned. If you have enquiries relating to more than one of the groups named above, please try to separate and to 17

24 address them in separate letters to the persons in question. This will expedite matters. 10.
