To answer your question, yes, NSFAS funds the University of Mpumalanga courses. The institution is the public entity by which government is the majority shareholder, therefore NSFAS is obligated to deliver its financial mandate to support needy students at the institution.

University of Mpumalanga registered students have the opportunity to apply for various bursaries to enable them to study at the University.

All categories of university student funds, which include scholarships, bursaries, and loans, are administered, and managed by the Student Financial Aid team, which ensures their efficient distribution to students.
