The National Student's Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) is the government's way of ensuring that all qualifying prospective university students from an underprivileged background are afforded the opportunity to pursue an academic career at a higher education institution.

However, will they fund students who attend or wish to attend the University of Limpopo?

The University of Limpopo is among South Africa's 26 public universities and with NSFAS funding students in public universities, the answer to that question is therefore: yes, they definitely do.

NSFAS unfortunately only funds undergraduate programmes and not postgraduate qualifications.

The NSFAS bursary will cover both your registration and your tuition fees so you won't have to worry about any finances when you start. This bursary will also cover the following:

  • Accommodation
  • Transport
  • Books and other learning materials
  • Meals
  • Living costs

Should you be asking whether your age is a factor, it is not and NSFAS does not have an age limit. If you meet the requirements, you will be funded.

NSFAS provides funding to students from disadvantaged families and it funds studies from most academic programmes. This means that if your household income comes to less than R350 000 per year, you are then eligible to be funded by NSFAS.

Should you be living with a disability, the household income threshold is then R600 000.

NSFAS is funded by the Department of Higher Education and Training.
