More than 690 000 students are currently benefiting from a National Student Financial Aid Scheme (Nsfas) bursary. The bursary covers tuition costs, accommodation costs, living expenses, transportation costs, and textbook costs and provides students with a meal allowance.

Nsfas provides updates to students via their social media accounts to ensure that students keep up to date with the latest developments from the scheme. However, a prominent Nsfas social media account is currently not available.

The Nsfas Facebook page has been blocked and is no longer available for use. The page is regularly used by students to pose questions and queries to the fund to get a speedy response. This will no longer be available to students due to the blockage.

Nsfas said, “Please note that our Facebook page is currently blocked by the platform provider”.

They added that their official page is currently not visible on Facebook and cautioned students against responding to messages from people posing as Nsfas asking for personal information.

This is as many students have fallen victim to fraud after providing personal information to fake Nsfas accounts. 

Students Can Use The Following Platform For Nsfas Updates

Nsfas apologised for any inconvenience the issue may have caused and assured students that they are working with Facebook to fix the issue.
