They provide funding for registration, tuition and allowances, these allowances cover transport, living expenses and learning materials.

When applying to NSFAS they need students to upload supporting documents in order to approve them for funding and the bursary will often withhold any allowances unless all the necessary documents have been submitted and approved.

How To Upload Documents
