With regards to how long NSFAS funds their students, it depends on the duration of your course or degree. Most degrees take about 3 to 4 years, whereas medical degrees for example take up to 7 years. And if you fail one year, NSFAS has granted students an extra year of funding.

 

In regards to the other expenses NSFAS will cover, a bursary from NSFAS can cover: 

  • Tuition fees
  • Accommodation
  • Transport
  • Living allowances
  • Book allowances
  • Incidental/personal care allowance for students in catered residences
