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.
