While acknowledging the challenges in the higher education sector, Minister Nzimande believes the significant strides in the sector cannot be ignored. The minister was speaking during the SONA debate this week. 

Millions of students have applied for funding from the National Student Financial Aid Scheme. The scheme has revealed what is being done to ensure a smooth start to the 2024 academic year.

Funding is now available from NSFAS for 31,000 missing middle students. Students can apply for the missing middle student loans from NSFAS.

NSFAS applications are open and students are encouraged to apply on myNSFAS so that they can be financed for the first step to a great future. Part of applying is that you have to submit documents to NSFAS so you might ask yourself, which documents then? Well, here 's the answer. 

Thousands of learners who recently obtained their matric qualification will want to pursue tertiary education. These learners are encouraged to apply for funding from NSFAS in 2024. 

There is just over one month left to apply for a bursary from NSFAS for 2024. NSFAS recently briefed parliament on its efforts to ensure a smooth 2024 academic year, however, stakeholders are not convinced. 

While NSFAS is recognised as a critical government intervention which removes the financial barriers which prevent students from obtaining qualifications, several challenges have plagued the scheme. However, the minister is adamant that NSFAS is improving. 

Applications for South Africa’s most popular bursary are open and thousands of students have already been approved for NSFAS funding. However, a stern message has been sent to individuals who may want to defraud the financial aid scheme. 

More than a million students were funded by NSFAS during 2023. The number of funded students is expected to grow as thousands of students have already been provisionally funded for 2024. 

More than a million students are currently being funded by the National Student Financial Aid Scheme. The number of funded students is expected to grow as 2024 bursary applications are open, with new eligibility requirements for students
