Fees that will be covered after Applying for NSFAS 2024

Does the funding cover short courses at universities? No. NSFAS funding covers only approved funded programmes at universities which are all undergraduate whole qualifications i.e. degree and diploma. Quite unfortunately this means all those enrolled in the sandwich programme and other courses will not be funded by the financial aid scheme.

Does the scheme pay registration costs for first-year and returning students? Yes. Registration costs are usually the first payment made towards your tuition costs, and if you have been confirmed for funding by them, universities and TVET colleges will not expect you to pay the registration fees upfront.

I already have a bursary from another organisation that covers part of my studies, can I apply to cover the balance of funds needed? Students on a full scheme bursary may not receive another full cost of study bursary from another source at the same time. If a student receives a partial bursary from another source, a scheme bursary may be awarded, but the allocations must be reduced accordingly so that the student is supported fully for their studies.
