Posted by on Tuesday, October 23, 2012 Under: SA Student Loans

NSFAS - National Student Financial Aid Scheme  Unisa

A NSFAS loan is an award that a student can receive from NSFAS upon applying and qualifying for such loan. This loan has to be repaid with interest (interest of each year is linked to the national inflation rate). A maximum award size is determined for each year by NSFAS. A portion of this award can be converted into a bursary based on academic performance. The size of this bursary is determined by the number of courses which the student has passed. A 100% pass rate will result in a 40% bursary rebate on this NSFAS loan.

  • Only South African students studying at public South African Higher Education Institutions;
