Will NSFAS Continue Funding Me If I Take A Gap Year?

We are here to answer all your NSFAS questions. If you find yourself wondering whether NSFAS will still fund you even if you took a year or two off and they funded you before, we have an answer for you. Don't forget that NSFAS applications are now open.

During a webinar with Careers Portal Live, NSFAS answered this question and said that gap year students, whether that be before you start your qualification or during, will still be funded by NSFAS if they were approved before and qualify.

When Will I Get My NSFAS Results?

So, you've completed your application to have your higher education studies funded by NSFAS. Now, you're waiting to hear whether it has been successful or not. Here's what will happen and what you can do if your application was unsuccessful.

NSFAS has said that application results will be communicated to all applicants once NSFAS received confirmation from the Institution that an academic offer has been made to you. This will be communicated to you before the start of the academic year via SMS, email and through your myNSFAS account.

Will NSFAS Fund My Online Studies?

The National Student Financial Aid Scheme, better known as NSFAS, offers bursaries to South African students who plan to study at public universities and TVET colleges. They cover funding for registration, tuition and allowances.  

You may be wondering if they fund students who pursue online studies.

The answer is yes they do but only if you're doing a full-time programme or university degree at a public university or TVET College. 

How To Check Your NSFAS Balance

NSFAS-Funded students who qualify to receive allowances directly from NSFAS will receive cash funds in their NSFAS Wallets. If you have been wondering how you can check your balance in your NSFAS Wallet, keep reading to find out. 

The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) provides students with a NSFAS wallet which allows NSFAS-funded students at certain tertiary institutions, to withdraw cash or spend it at any merchant registered by NSFAS.

Allowance amounts are determined through consultation with institutions, communicated to NSFAS when you register.
