Funding your tertiary education can be challenging, but the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) aims to provide financial support to students who are in need. If you're a TVET college student, here's how NSFAS funding works.
Learnerships can be a crucial part of learning for students as they get to experience what their daily life will be like once they graduate with their qualification. However, questions have recently been raised around the impact of learnerships on the bursaries of government funded students.
Applying for NSFAS funding is often a stressful process, especially when waiting to hear if you've been approved. If your NSFAS application has been rejected, there are the steps you can take to try again for funding.
NSFAS is a bursary that helps many of the country's students financially throughout their tertiary education. Students are provided with an allowance that has the purpose of covering most of their study-related expenses, which includes accommodation.
Student accommodation remains one of the most frustrating challenges students find themselves dealing with when entering or returning to tertiary institutions. Although the Department of Higher Education and Training, alongside NSFAS, have pledged to resolve some of the problems, there is still a long way to go.
Details highlighting the Department of Higher Education and Training's state of readiness have been revealed by Minister Blade Nzimande in his annual address. The Minister gave insight into when applicants will receive communication concerning their NSFAS applications.
