How to apply for financial assistance from the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS)

Are you in need of financial assistance to study at a tertiary institution? Apply for a NSFAS study loan or bursary through the Financial Aid Bureaus at your tertiary institution.

NSFAS is a loan and bursary scheme funded by the Department of Higher Education and Training for those who do not have the financial means to fund their studies and / or cannot access bank funding, study loans or bursaries.

Note:

  • Application for a study loan should be made at the institution where you would like to study, not at NSFAS.
  • Loans will be allocated subject to the availability of funds.
  • Loans are not guaranteed.
