Welcome to NSFAS 

NSFAS is the South African government student loan and bursary scheme. We provide loans and bursaries to students at all 25 public universities and 50 public FET colleges throughout the country.

NSFAS funding has grown from R441 million in 1999 to R8,5 billion in 2013.

We have helped leaders in all fields. Read about their success stories here. When NSFAS students graduate, and pay back their loans, we can help more students in future.

Xolisa Peter

Chief Information Officer NSFAS

I am originally from King Williams Town, Eastern Cape. I matriculated at All Saints Senior College in Bisho. My mother, a bursary from Nedbank and Sales House contributed towards my first two years of study. I wanted the exposure the city of Johannesburg offered in Information Technology so I studied Information Technology at the University of Johannesburg and made use of NSFAS funding in my final year.


As a student I never imagined I would end up as CIO of NSFAS. I am now involved in the biggest, most exciting IT project of my career - the impact will mean a radical change in how students are serviced all over the country.
In small ways we can all do great things.
