NSFAS administers bursaries to those studying or wishing to study at one of South Africa’s 26 public Universities or 50 public TVET Colleges.

This means that should you be pursuing a Nursing qualification at one of those institutions, you will be covered.

There are a bunch of Nursing Colleges in the country. However, because they are private institutions, you won’t be able to get funding through NSFAS. There is however a chance that the institution has financial aid options available to you, which you can consult the college about.

An NSFAS bursary covers various things such as:

University Students

  • Tuition Fees
  • Accommodation As per the actual costs charged by the university (costs for private accommodation must not exceed costs for university residence)
  • Transport (up to 40 km from the institution) R7 500  per year
  • Living allowance R15,000  per year
  • Book allowances R5200 per year
  • Incidental/personal care allowance R2900 per year for students in catered residences

TVET College Students

  • Tuition Fees
  • Accommodation
    • Urban area R24,000 per year
    • Peri-urban area R18,900 per year
    • Rural area R15,750 per year
  • Transport
    • up to 40 km from institution R7,350  per year
    • R7000 per year
  • Incidental/personal care allowance R2900 per year

NSFAS applications open around August/September every year and close in November/December of that same year.

The main requirement to qualify for funding through NSFAS is that your household income must be between R0 and R350 000 per year. Applicants who are SASSA beneficiaries immediately qualify.

  • You are a SASSA grant recipient;
  • You are registering for the first time for an undergraduate qualification at a public university or you are registered at a TVET college for one of the National Certificate Vocational or report 191 programmes;
