The NSFAS is a student's financial aid that is intended to helps students, includes both students in the Universities and Colleges.
It helps Student with finance to pay for Tuition Fees, Books, Accommodation, and Transport. After students completed their studies, they will have to pay back certain amount.

To use NSFAS you have to apply, then they will tell you if you qualifier to use it. Before you can receive any amount from Nsfas, you have to sign contract first with them.
Only SOUTH AFRICAN learners/students are covered by the NSFAS programme. Government and Companies they wants only South African citizens to benefits from this
Program by doing they don't allow other people from other countries to take part or use bursary. Reason is that since most of learners and students are from poor family
Background, they cannot afford to pay for themselves.
Vision and Mission
Nsfas is there to close a gap between Rich and Poor families. Before Nsfas was introduced only children from rich families, were able to access and study in tertiary levels.
Children from poor families, their dreams were demolishing after completed matric; some with good marks were not able to further their studies because of their family background.
Now NSFAS have closed the gap, we see all the students studying at the tertiary. Since these programmes were introduced, many students have benefited from it.
This programme is also closing the gap, for scarce skills jobs in South Africa.
