Students who wish to apply for financial assistance must do so as soon as possible. A National Means Test for NSFAS loans will determine the amount payable by each student. The expected family contribution will differ for individual students, depending on his/her unique circumstances.
The National Means Test will take the following into consideration:
- Academic performance during the year.
- Annual family income – supportive documentation needs to be submitted in this regard.
- Actual cost of study for the academic year.
Applicants will know about the outcome of their applications by the second week after reopening for the first term. Students whose applications are not successful should register with the normal initial amount payable by all other students.
