How have you found the introduction of the direct payment system from NSFAS? There have been many protests by student organisations who aren't happy with the new system.

While it may be changed at some stage, you still need your monthly allowances now! So for the moment the best thing to do is work with the new system to avoid missing out.

Nsfas and Tenet - What is the Difference?

Nsfas decided that they needed help in distributing the allowances to Nsfas beneficiaries. They appointed four companies that would work with them to allow students to spend their allowances, and also buy goods and services with their cards.

Tenet Technology is one of the companies that has been asked to manage the payment of allowances to students.
