postgrad bursary


NSFAS pulling funding for postgraduate qualifications hit many students hard this year. Now, NSFAS has said that they are looking to raise funds and find donors to fund postgraduate qualifications.


Chevening provides full funding for one-year master's degrees at UK universities. You can now apply for a Chevening Scholarship for the 2022/2023 academic year.


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.
