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 TVET 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.

Getting educated to work in education

I studied with NSFAS funding for a National Diploma in Entrepreneurship at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology. I started working at NSFAS in 2010, and my aspiration is to study further (after my M.Tech.) and to contribute to education in South Africa through research, teaching and learning or through being part of NSFAS.
