Ever dreamed of being able to study abroad? Studying abroad offers and opportunity of a lifetime to few students.

Studying abroad offers something even greater – an immersive experience that teaches you about different cultures, expands your general knowledge, broadens your horizons and offers greater opportunities while allowing you to fulfil your academic and travel dreams.


More and more opportunities for South African students to study abroad are popping up. 

Funding to study abroad

  • Visit your high school career guidance counsellor or the student career advice centre at your nearest university or college and ask them for advice on funding opportunities to study abroad.
  • There are many scholarships opportunities available for students to study abroad. Scout the internet and keep a constant eye out for organisations and companies offering these opportunities.
  • You can also apply for a student loan. Find a student loan option where the interest rates are competitive and you only have to repay once you've graduated and started working.

Global education is of vital importance and organisations are realising this. It takes effort and lots of perseverance, but it is a good idea to apply for more than one opportunity to increase your chances of pursuing your dreams of studying abroad.
