The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) provides loans and gives various NSFAS bursaries to students at all 25 of our public universities, as well as the 50 public TVET colleges. Instead of having to repay the monetary value as with loans, bursars who apply for a NSFAS bursary will enter into a contract to work in a specific sector in South Africa for a specified amount of time after their graduation.
Who Can Apply
South African citizens who comply with the entry requirements set by the universities or TVET College of their choice / have proof of registration or acceptance to said university or college.
Unless otherwise stated, the bursary fund will allow for a portion of, if not all of, the following study-related costs:Tuition, Accommodation, Meals, Travel, Prescribed books/study material.
The amounts prescribed for the above-mentioned costs will be dependent on the outcome of the NSFAS Means Test.
