The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) is planning to establish operational centres in all of the country’s nine provinces. 

This was revealed in a briefing on Monday morning. The NSFAS Board and Executive Management, under the guidance of Acting Chairperson Prof. Lourens Van Staden, convened the press briefing to address these key areas.

NSFAS offers comprehensive bursaries and student loans to deserving students enrolled in approved courses at public universities and Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Colleges. NSFAS also provides money for allowances.

Van Staden disclosed plans to establish NSFAS offices in all provinces, emphasising the importance of nationwide accessibility for students and applicants.

"We are diligently finalising our plans to establish operational offices in all provinces to ensure NSFAS's presence across the country," he stated, promising to share more details once plans are finalised.

Recognising the annual challenges associated with registration, NSFAS has deployed servicing administrators to institutions for the past two weeks to assist students.

Our aim is to alleviate tensions and foster a harmonious academic environment across all institutions.

This intervention aims to facilitate seamless interaction between NSFAS and its beneficiaries, necessitating increased financial resources, upgraded information technologies, and skilled personnel.

These necessary system changes will enhance NSFAS's ability to efficiently handle a large volume of student applications, process them promptly, and provide timely feedback to all applicants.

Since its inception in 1991 with R21.4 million in funding, NSFAS has seen its funding increase to nearly R50 billion, demonstrating its commitment to expanding access to post-school education and training.
