Nsfas Qualifying Students 2024/2025
Nsfas Requirements For Qualifying Students 2024/2025
Only South African nationals who intend to attend a public university or TVET college and who fall under one or more of the following categories as SASSA grant recipients and applicants whose total family income is not more than R350 000 per year will be qualified for NSFAS bursaries.
Because tertiary education is so expensive, many students worry that they won’t be able to pursue the degree they want because they won’t have the money to complete it. However, it’s been established that NSFAS will pay for all eligible students throughout their qualification pursuit.
The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) is a public entity reporting to the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET). It provides financial assistance in the form of study bursaries to qualifying students who plan to study at Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges and public universities.
