National Students Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) will be cutting funding from some programmes this year but there are other options for students who qualify for the national support scheme.

The NSFAS N+ Rule has been around for some time, making the lives of some students difficult. Students said this rule has been negatively affecting them, as some were not able to finish their degrees with funding from NSFAS. 

NSFAS laptops have been taking a bit longer than expected. Minister Blade Nzimande has finally given some good news to students who have been waiting for months for devices. 

If you plan to study next year, but need funding then you should consider applying for NSFAS. Applications for 2021 funding opened this year in August, but they're coming to an end in a few days.

Solidarity Youth has decided to file an urgent court application against NSFAS. Some students were reportedly kicked off the bursary scheme without much notice and this has caused outrage.
