Here's How Submitting Documents To NSFAS Works


Have you forgotten to submit documents with your NSFAS application and now you're confused about how the process of submitting documents to NSFAS works? We are here to clear up any confusion you may have. 


If you have completed your application for the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) bursary then you may have been asked to submit documents as part of your application, which verifies the information you have provided in the application. 

Applications for the NSFAS bursary closed on 7 January 2022. 

If you are worried that you didn't submit all the documents you think they may have needed, NSFAS has stated that the myNSFAS portal will request documents based on the information that you have included in your application. 

An applicant will not be able to submit more documents after their application has been submitted, so NSFAS says that applicants should wait for their evaluation team to request a document should they need it. 

So NSFAS will send you a communication if they require more documents from you. 

Here are the documents NSFAS applicants were required to submit with their online application: 

All applicants:

  • Copy of your ID
  • Must have consent from parent(s), guardian or spouse to submit their personal information for validation and verification. Once you accept the application terms and conditions, you confirm that you have received consent from all relevant parties.

If the applicant is dependent on their parents/guardian/spouse, they must provide:

  • ID copies of parent(s), guardian or spouse
  • Proof of income (payslip/UIF letter/appointment letter/recruitment letter) of parent(s), guardian or spouse where applicable

If the applicant has a disability, they must provide:

  • A completed Disability Annexure A (if their information is not pre-populated on the online application form)

To upload missing/outstanding documents for your 2021 application, follow these steps:

  • Sign into your myNSFAS account
  • Upload the requested missing documents
  • Press submit

Once you have done this, you should receive a notification confirming that the documents have been successfully uploaded.

Welding is one of the many kinds of trades that can provide a decent living and secure job. There are many jobs available for welders, but it's important to note what kind of welding you want to do before choosing your trade. It's also important to understand that besides knowing how to weld, you must know how to properly use tools and read blueprints, so that you can be as safe as possible while on the job.

When you hear the word "welder," perhaps your mind conjures images of a burly man or woman covered in a suit, hunched over an electric arc welder, furiously fusing two pieces of metal together.  Welding is a process that can be used in many different industries. Although the word "welder" might bring to mind someone who works with metal, welding is done in all sorts of industries – from construction to the manufacturing industry.
