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 FET (Further Education Training) 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.
NSFAS has been highly successful in helping to educate the youth; available funding has grown from R441 million in 1999 to a whopping R8.5 billion in 2013.
DHET/NSFAS (National Student Financial Aid Scheme)
9.1. Academically deserving and financially needy students may apply to NSFAS for financial aid. A National Means test determines who qualifies for the bursary. Students, who do not qualify for NSFAS bursary, will have to pay the full appropriate tuition fees.
9.2. For students who still have some subjects outstanding (failed) at NCV Level 3 and/or Level 4, on conclusion of Level 4, may be funded further for an additional year (in full-time classes) in order to obtain the certificates. For further information contact the Student Liaison Officer and/or the Financial Aid Officer.
9.3. Repeaters- NCV
Students who do not meet the criteria to progress to the next level of study are viewed as repeaters and will not qualify for Financial Aid. Students, who wish to enrol,repeat a level or switch to another programme,will have to finance their studies.(You will not qualify for a bursary).
Financial Aid is linked to academic performance,financial need and class attendance. Attendance Policy of 80% attendance will be adhered to.
