How Long will NSFAS fund me?

NSFAS, the National Student Financial Aid Scheme, funds students for their studies from money they receieve from the government. If you are funded by NSFAS, not only will your studies but also further funding for other expenses. 


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.


Does NSFAS Still Provide Book Vouchers?

The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) provides funding for students at higher education institutions. So does NSFAS still provide book vouchers now that students are using online learning? 


In the past NSFAS has provided book vouchers as part of their funding so that students are able to purchase any books related to their course of study. But now that many universitites are using online learning, will NSFAS still provide book vouchers? 


What is the NSFAS N+2 Rule?

NSFAS N+2 Rule

The rule that NSFAS applies for the length that they fund students is called the N+2 rule. Keep reading to find out what the rule is! 


The rule means that students have N+2 years to finish the degree they have applied for. N refers to the minimum number of years allocated by the institution to complete the qualification a student is registered for. The +2 refers to an additional 2 years that NSFAS includes for the number of years they will fund a student.
