Does NSFAS Fund MANCOSA Students?

MANCOSA is an online learning platform where students have the opportunity to study from home. You may be interested in studying at MANCOSA but unsure whether NSFAS funds their courses.



MANCOSA is a private, accredited business school that offers distance learning courses with full online support to help students if and when they need it. Their qualifications range from Higher Certificates to Doctoral qualifications.

They strive to provide management programmes that are affordable, accessible and accredited. 

Unfortunately, the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) does not fund MANCOSA students because the institution is a private higher education provider.

NSFAS only funds students at TVET colleges or public universities and sadly MANCOSA does not fall under those categories.

However, there are other funding alternatives at MANCOSA, such as the Fundi educational loans and student loans.

Fundi offers student loans to cover the cost of studying at any tertiary institution. The student loan is paid directly to the Higher Education Institution the student attends. 

Fundi provides a variety of student loans such as tuition, device and MBA loans. The loans cover the cost of accommodation, learning materials, outstanding tuition fees and much more.

Repayments are made easy through deduction from the students’ salaries or debit orders. No collateral needs to be paid after the loan has been received.

Students may also apply for student loans from banks to cover all study-related expenses such as textbooks, tuition fees, student accommodation and transport.

These student loans are typically paid back during or after the student has graduated.
