Student Loans

Student loans are an integral part of most students' tertiary education. Very few students can afford to study further without some form of financial assistance, be it a bursary, grant or student loan. There are many ways to find a student loan - public institutions such as NSFAS and Eduloan offer student loans to those in need, as do all major banks. Student loans from public institutions are usually awarded based on financial need, while those offered by private financial institutions are more readily available and less strict in terms of qualifying criteria. Ultimately it is up to you to decide which route to take to finance your studies, but however you choose to do it student loans will certainly play a major role.
