NSFAS is the National Student Financial Aid Scheme which is a government loan and bursary fund for students.  NSFAS bursary applications and registrations are open in the later part of the year for students who want to study in the next calendar year.

NSFAS Online Applications are open now for the 2020 academic year. To check your status login to your NSFAS application account and check your status. If you need help we have all the details about how and where to apply for a fully funded bursary from NSFAS.


There are less than 23 days for students to apply for assistance from the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) for the 2020 academic year. Applications for eligible learners will officially close at midnight on 30 November 2019.


Staff at the National Student Financial Aid Scheme have gone out on strike. Workers at the head office who are part of the Nehawu union are striking for better benefits.

The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) has engaged various provincial governments where a low number of applications have been received for 2020.


To apply online, applicants will be required to first register and create a MyNSFAS profile on the NSFAS website, which will serve as their personal account where they can log in for updates on their applications and funding throughout the year.

NSFAS was put under administration in August 2018, and Higher Education Minister Blade Nzimande has extended this to August 2020.  "NSFAS would like to reassure the public that the arrest of the three employees will not have an impact on the 2020 applications cycle, which is expected to close on November 30, 2019," Carolissen said.
