Here's Who Qualifies for NSFAS in TVET Colleges
NSFAS provides fully subsidised free higher education and training for poor and working class South Africans through bursaries. NSFAS funding is available to TVET College students as well so what's the criteria for TVET students to be funded?
The National Student Financial Aid Scheme, what we all know as NSFAS, is a government bursary that is available to underprivileged South African students.
TVET College students have not been left behind as they can get funded through the NSFAS bursary as well.
The NSFAS criteria for TVET students is as follows:
- Must be a South African citizen
- Must be registered or intending to register on a PLP, NC(V) or Report 191 programme at any public TVET College in South Africa
- Must be admitted/received a firm offer for enrolment in a College
- Must be in need of financial assistance
- Applicants will qualify if they fall within the maximum threshold of up to R350 000 of combined gross family income per annum
- Returning students must demonstrate proven and accepted academic performance (academically deserving) in line with the College’s progression policy or the progression prescriptions of the Bursary Rules and Guidelines (whichever is higher)
- Must not be enrolling for a qualification that duplicates previous learning that was state-funded
If you meet these requirements, then you will be eligible for NSFAS TVET College funding which covers tuition fees, accommodation fees, and transport allowances.
NSFAS funding for TVET students looks a little but different than that of University students. TVET College students who are also NSFAS beneficiaries will receive their allowances through NSFAS Wallet.
