Does NSFAS Pay for Short Courses?


Advertisement

If you're a South African student who is looking to study short courses, you may be wondering whether you can be funded by NSFAS. You can keep reading to find out!

 

Sadly NSFAS does not cover short courses, even if they are at universities. The financial aid scheme only covers full-time qualifications administered through a University or TVET College. This means that NSFAS does not fund part-time studies students or students from private institutions. However, NSFAS does fund Unisa students. Because UNISA is a distance learning institution, the categories of allowances allocated to students are different.

 

The requirements are as follows:

  • You're a South African citizen
  • You have passed Grade 9 to 12
  • If you're a SASSA grant recipient, you qualify for funding
  • You have a combined household income of not more than R350 000 per year
  • Persons with disability: Combined household income must not be more than R600 000 per year
