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.

Student, False Bay College Khayelitsha Campus

I am currently a student at False Bay College Khayelitsha Campus, in Cape Town studying Office Administration. NSFAS is helping me to pay for my studies - they help many students like me who are hungry for education.


I attended Salt River High School in Cape Town. In my family, we are four children. My mother works hard to support the family and my father passed away in 2006, so it is difficult to pay for school fees for all of us.


Organisations like NSFAS inspire me; they are willing to assist people who cannot pay their study fees. When NSFAS was testing its new sBux system for giving students their money on a cellphone voucher at our college, I was one of the students who helped them and I appeared in the video they made to show how sBux works. I was very happy when the video was on YouTube.


My dream is to become an entrepreneur so that I can help create job opportunities for South Africans.
