Colleges funded by NSFAS

The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) provides bursaries to students who meet the NSFAS requirements and have a household income of less than R350 000. It's good to remember that NSFAS funds TVET College students in South Africa as well.


Can I got to college with only a Grade 9 report? Simply put, yes. According to the Western Cape Government, as part of the Higher Education system, TVET Colleges accept students who've completed Grade 9, 10, 11 or 12 at high school level. University post-graduates can also enrol for courses at TVET Colleges for more practical exposure.


Mopani South East TVET College is now taking applications from those who want to study at the College for Trimester study. This College is one of the TVET Colleges in Limpopo.


Recently NSFAS came under fire for a post by an employee which stated that students who receive the R350 SRD grant could not qualify for the NSFAS bursary scheme. They say that this post was factually incorrect.

NSFAS has decided to launch a Virtual Outreach Exhibition (VOE). VOE is a part of their new and exciting innovations. The VOE is a live streaming session which will be interactive to allow students to get the whole NSFAS experience.


Lectures, for tertiary education students, were moved online during the lockdown, in an attempt to save the 2020 academic year. However, this resulted in many students falling behind due to lack of resources.


University is not your only option for furthering your education. The Department of Higher Education and Training views Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Colleges as Institutions of Choice.
