postgrad bursary


The Standard Bank Group bursary fund considers undergraduate and postgraduate studies. Bursary beneficiaries will be required to work for Standard Bank if in the event they receive an offer of employment by the Bank upon graduation.


Santam, in partnership with StudyTrust, is offering a bursary to students, undergraduate and postgraduate. 


As a technology company, CONLOG is looking for exceptional candidates studying towards relevant qualifications in computer science, engineering, supply chain management, actuarial science and commerce. In addition, they offer students the ability to experience industry first-hand through their vacation work programme.


With very short notice after NSFAS announced that they would no longer be funding postgraduate qualification, PGCE students were left without funding. Thousands of students are now calling for NSFAS to reverse this decision and fund PGCE students again.


The issue of postgrad funding has been a major issue for a while now and NSFAS has added fuel to that fire. NSFAS has said that they will not fund any postgrad qualifications anymore as there are not enough resources available to do so.


The issue of missing middle funding, along with postgraduate funding, is ongoing. The Minister of Higher Education is now pushing for NSFAS to introduce a loan scheme to support these categories of students.


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.
