FINANCIAL AID FOR PROSPECTIVE, CURRENT, AND POSTGRADUATE STUDENTS

The university reserves the right to amend without prior notice, the regulations and bursary/loan values and/or conditions applicable to the awarding of bursaries/loans.

A quality product is never cheap. However, this should not dissuade you from studying! At Kovsies, we do our best to assist you in dealing with these financial challenges.

NATIONAL STUDENT FINANCIAL AID SCHEME (NSFAS)

Important notice

NSFAS does not fund the University Access Programmes (UAP), as it is a bridging programme.  You must fund your own studies and apply the following year for mainstream studies, if you have successfully passed your UAP year.  NSFAS funding is ONLY applicable for the Higher Certificates presented via the UFS South Campus. Students who obtained a Higher Certificate must reapply for NSFAS funding.
