Students whose family income was just a little too high for them to access NSFAS bursaries will now have the opportunity to access government loans to complete their studies. The Higher Education Minister has announced a new scheme which he promised would be open for applications within a couple of weeks.


Thousands of students will not be able to obtain qualifications due to the high cost of tertiary education. The higher education department is investigating several options to ensure students who do not qualify for National Student Financial Aid Scheme bursaries can attend tertiary education institutions.

 


There is a group of students who cannot afford to pay the costs of tertiary education and do not qualify for the government bursary. These students are known as the missing middle, and they can apply for this bursary. 


The FessMustFall movement was critical in ensuring that millions of underprivileged students will not be prevented from studying at tertiary institutions due to their financial circumstances. However, there is a group of students whose financial circumstances could prevent them from obtaining degrees.

 


Several bursary schemes seek to ensure these students are not left behind and can achieve academic success. This as the cost of tertiary education often prevents many students from achieving their full potential and academic goals.

 


Caught in the gap between the rich and poor, the missing middle faces a unique set of challenges when applying for university funding.
