nsfas appeals


The College of Cape Town Management team has released a statement on how NSFAS funding will be allocated to all eligible students for the year 2021. They've also given answers to how much NSFAS beneficiaries will receive as allowances.


With NSFAS having released funding decisions for 2021, the Minister of Higher Education has now taken it upon himself to congratulate those who were successful in applying for the NSFAS bursary.


Unisa has given updates to students funded by NSFAS who have not received their NSFAS allowances. NSFAS funding for Unisa students is not the same as students from other Universities being funded by NSFAS due to the difference in teaching methods.


Good news, if you're a Unisa student and your NSFAS application was rejected, you still have time to send in an appeal. Appeals close soon so do it before it's too late.


If your application to be funded through NSFAS was rejected, you can appeal to NSFAS to reconsider it. NSFAS offers student loans and bursaries for students who qualify. 


Higher Education Minister, Blade Nzimande, gave updates on NSFAS laptops, NSFAS allowances and funding, Unisa and many other topics which are currently being discussed in Higher Education. This is in response to a list of demands submitted to the Minister by the South African Union of Students.


The South African Union of Students have expressed their displeasure with the death which allegedly is a result of plice bullets. They have also issued a list of demands to the Higher Education Minister which included NSFAS funding, free education and registration.


NSFAS has started revealing to students whether their application to be funded was successful or not. If yours was unsuccessful, here are the reasons why that decision was made.


NSFAS Administrator Dr Carolissen discusses why NSFAS students have had to wait until the next academic year for their promised laptops. 


With the 2020 school year coming to an end and the academic year for some tertiary institutions finishing, higher education now has to put plans in place for next year as we all try to live alongside the virus and minimise it's effects.


Minister of Higher Education, Blade Nzimande, has detailed when Universities will be completing the current academic year as well when they'll be starting the next. Surprisingly, these dates might not be what we originally thought they would be due to the pandemic.


The Minister announced that students who are not funded and affected by the N+ rule and have issued appeals will have their applications looked at more closely. This process is currently underway as Universities submit information to NSFAS.
