NSFAS Qualifying Criteria

Who is NSFAS?

The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) is a public entity reporting to the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET). It provides financial assistance in the form of study bursaries to qualifying students who plan to study at Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges and public universities.

This is what the scheme does:

  • Supports access to, and success in, higher education and training for students from poor and working-class families who would otherwise not be able to afford the cost of studying at a TVET college or university.
  • Provides bursaries to qualifying students at TVET colleges and public universities.

What does the NSFAS bursary cover?

To ensure that students get the most out of their studies, NSFAS makes their educational journey enjoyable and free of any financial burden by providing all necessary support from registration until graduation.

  • Registration fees
  • Tuition fees

They also receive allowances for the following:

  • Food
  • Personal care

  • Medical assessments: The assessment is limited to one assessment for the duration of the qualification and on request by the Disability Unit/Student Support.
  • Assistive devices: Limited to one assistive device for the duration of the qualification.
  • Human supportTo cover the cost of human support such as a caregiver, guide dog, scribe, tutor, or sign language interpreter.
