Financial aid

There is a wide range of possible sources of financial support for higher education students in South Africa.  These range from bursaries to study loans from government or private institutions, e.g. commercial banks and mines, etc.

It is the students’ responsibility to apply for financial aid and you are therefore encouraged to investigate all possibilities and make sure that you apply in time for financial aid.
