Can nsfas fund me if I failed

The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) is a government student bursary scheme that receives its funding budget from, and reports to the Department of Higher Education and Training. NSFAS will cover more than just your tuition fees, should you qualify. 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. NSFAS funds students depending on the duration of their course or degree.

Yes, they will continue funding you. According to the NSFAS policy agreement, students must pass at least 50% of their modules as well as meet the academic requirements of their institution in order to continue receiving financial aid during the course of their study period.

However, this question also deals with the N+ rule NSFAS has in place. Before NSFAS was changed from a loan scheme to a bursary, the rule was ‘N+2’ and after the change which came into action in 2018, it was changed to the ‘N+1’ rule.

The N stands for the number of years your qualification goes for and the number (+1) refers to the number of years NSFAS will continue funding you for if you fail.
