Students have begun receiving their learning materials allowances. Since the change from vouchers to cash, university students are encouraged to spend their allowances in ways that benefit their education. Rather than using their allowances for other unrelated expenses. This change has also affected academic industry sales and businesses. Critiques have also shown concern about the effect the change to cash would have on students' academics. 


You may have read recently that NSFAS would be changing the way applications worked. The organisation has adopted what they call a Student Centered Model, completely overhauling the applications system. So what does this mean for you?

The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) has called on all learners, who have not yet applied for 2019 financial aid, to submit their online applications before the closing date.


If you’ve decided to get financing from a South African bank, you’ll need to fit certain requirements before you can take out a study loan.
