The Ikusasa Student Financial Aid Programme (ISFAP) is a bursary geared towards not only students from poor background but also students who come from the middle class who fall under the 'missing middle' category.

If you are funded by ISFAP, there are requirements which you have to achieve to stay funded by them.

ISFAP covers students for the minimum duration of their qualification. This means that should you be doing a 4 year course, they will fund you for 4 years. 

Progression to the following year of study is therefore important for when ISFAP assesses whether funding should be continued. 

The requirements to stay funded are as follows:

  • any module or course that will add to the minimum prescribed period would be looked at and you will need to pass them
  • if you fail a module which would add extra time to your qualification then that’s viewed as an unsatisfactory performance

If you no longer meet the requirements, you will lose your funding.

ISFAP is a foundation that offers academic and psycho-social support to undergraduate students at their partnered universities. They offer bursaries to students who have household incomes between R0 and R600 000 per year.

Welding is one of the many kinds of trades that can provide a decent living and secure job. There are many jobs available for welders, but it's important to note what kind of welding you want to do before choosing your trade. It's also important to understand that besides knowing how to weld, you must know how to properly use tools and read blueprints, so that you can be as safe as possible while on the job.

When you hear the word "welder," perhaps your mind conjures images of a burly man or woman covered in a suit, hunched over an electric arc welder, furiously fusing two pieces of metal together.  Welding is a process that can be used in many different industries. Although the word "welder" might bring to mind someone who works with metal, welding is done in all sorts of industries – from construction to the manufacturing industry.
