National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) | NSFAS Students Portal | my.nsfas.org.za

The cost of learning in South African universities is way above the ability of a majority of households. In order not to allow great grades to go to waste, the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) was created. So basically, loans and bursaries can easily be accessed  for this major purpose. National Student Financial Aid Scheme is therefore, an organization that is responsible for  financing students through loans and scholarships for training at public institutes, which are recognized by the South African Department of Education.

NSFAS loans and bursaries are accessed on the platform’s online portal. This means that, in order to have access to the bursaries and loans, one needs to register online first. Those interested in the bursaries must also be Financial Literate before applying.
