What are the conditions attached to accepting a bursary?

If a prospective student qualifies for a bursary, they will have to sign a contract with binding conditions. Accepting DHET bursary funding will not require a beneficiary to pay back the funds in monetary terms.

However, it does require that the beneficiary meets and maintains certain academic conditions/criteria, as well as service requirements for the duration of the study period, as well as a commitment to the country over the longer term.

Any graduate funded through the DHET Bursary scheme who wishes to emigrate to live in another country will be required to pay back the funds before they leave the country.

Some of the conditions are:

  • In the first year of study, it is the responsibility of the student to focus on their studies and to acclimatise themselves to university life in a responsible and disciplined manner;
  • In the first year of study and every year thereafter, the student must comply with the following academic requirements:

o Attend and participate in lectures, tutorials and academic support programmes as required by the institution;

o Complete all set assignments and/or tasks as required in terms of the due performance requirements of the Institution;

o Undergo all tests and examinations (written and oral) as required in terms of the due performance requirements of the institution;

o Obtain satisfactory results for the above-mentioned assignments, tasks, tests and examinations;

and Meet the progression requirements of the institutions, as well as passing at least 50% of all courses in the first year of study, and passing sufficient courses in subsequent years to enable them to complete their studies in the minimum number of years plus one year (n + 1 years of study) [i.e. maximum of two years of study for a one year higher certificate;

three years of study for a two year diploma; four years of study for a three year degree or diploma;

five years of study for a four year degree; seven years of study for a six year degree].
