Scholarships and bursaries reduce the cost of postgraduate study and the burden of debt because they don't have to be repaid.

1. What is the difference between a Bursary and a Scholarship?

  • A scholarship is a financial award granted to a student on the basis of the student’s academic or sporting excellence.
