ENTRANT STUDENTS

 

If you wish to apply for financial aid for 2017, you need to make an online application for NSFAS (National Student Financial Aid Scheme) funding on their website – www.nsfas.org.za   - as universities no longer issue NSFAS financial aid applications.  If you are unable to access the internet,  you may call the NSFAS Call Centre (Telephone Number 086 006 7327) for information or to post you a financial aid application to fill in and return to them by post.  If you wish to contact NSFAS by email their address is info@nsfas.or.za – they are also able to assist you through the application process or clarify any funding queries that you may have. The NSFAS application process for 2017 will open on 1 August 2016 and close on 30 November 2016.  Late applications will not be considered.  Before commencing the online application process,  please remember to scan a copy of your SA identity document as you will need to attach it to your application.  The online system will also advise you of any other supporting documents that you may need to attach.  NSFAS will advise you of the status of your application once they have received it.  Please note that NSFAS can only make final funding decisions after they have received your Grade 12 Final Examination results.

RETURNING STUDENTS

NSFAS has advised all Universities of its decision to move all financial aid applications onto the NSFAS Central Applications system for 2017. 

In view of the above, Student Funding has not printed any financial aid applications for 2017. 

Students who have received NSFAS loans in 2016 will be automatically migrated to the NSFAS 2017 application system and DO NOT need to submit financial aid applications again for 2017.

The following categories of students ARE required to complete the NSFAS application process if they wish to be considered for NSFAS loans in 2017:

  • All first time applicants for NSFAS funding 
  • All students who received bursaries in 2016
  • All students who were not NSFAS loan recipients in 2016

§  If you wish to apply for financial aid for 2017, you need to make an online application for NSFAS (National Student Financial Aid Scheme) funding on their website – www.nsfas.org.za 

NSFAS Financial Aid Applications open 01 August 2016 and close 30 November 2016.


 

HOW TO APPLY?


The guidelines relating to entrants and returning students who wish to apply for financial aid are explained above.  Applications for financial aid must be done on the NSFAS website – www.nsfas.org.za and NSFAS will respond to applicants in January before registration.


Depending on your family income, and on your academic progress, UKZN may award you a bursary or a scholarship. There is never sufficient funding for all applicants and all applicants are financially screened and listed in academic priority.


Follow the instructions exactly with regard to information required, documents requested, and deadline dates.

Note that we try to give opportunities to as many people as possible so we do NOT offer funding if you already have a degree at the level at which you intend to study or if you already have a post-graduate vocational qualification, or if you are registering part-time or for a "self-funding course".

WHAT YOU MAY BE AWARDED

IF YOU ARE FROM A REALLY NEEDY FAMILY WITHOUT OTHER FORMS OF FINANCIAL AID AND YOU HAVE REALLY GOOD RESULTS YOU ARE LIKELY TO BE AWARDED FINANCIAL AID.

If your results are mediocre or poor you are UNLIKELY to receive financial aid from the university.

YOU DO NOT NEED TO APPLY FOR A UNIVERSITY SCHOLARSHIP. Whether you are an entrant or an undergraduate, the Scholarships Committee will compare all students with excellent results, and will tell you whether you have been awarded one of the many scholarships. If you are an entrant you may also be awarded a merit award based on achieving excellent results in the Senior Certificate Examination. See under Scholarships for details.
