If you're a Unisa student, yes you can get funded but your funding would work differently. You would not get all the allowances students at contact universities get because University is basically online. Unisa students only get their tuition fees paid and a learning materials allowance for books or devices. Unisa students who are registered for ten modules or more are also allocated an incidental allowance.
Qualifying and getting funded by NSFAS means nothing if you are not registered to a University or TVET College.
You are also encouraged to apply to NSFAS as soon as you can as the demand for funding is expected to grow due to the effects Covid-19 and the lockdown has had on employment and finances.
NSFAS applications for 2021 are now open. NSFAS does not accept emailed or posted applications. For more information on how to apply, click here.
