The Minister of Higher Education, Science, and Innovation, Dr. Blade Nzimande, has given the green light for the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) to start online applications for 2022.
The NSFAS online applications for 2022 are for students who need government assistance to continue their education at one of the 25 public universities or 50 TVET colleges, including those who have previously studied without NSFAS.
Minister Nzimande paid a visit to the NSFAS headquarters in Cape Town on Tuesday, October 26 to examine the readiness of the online application system for first-time students and returning students who previously studied without NSFAS in 2022.
“I am fairly convinced from the demonstration I have seen, that we are ready to start the 2022 online application for qualified students,” the Minister added, praising the system upgrades and major considerations made to streamline the application system process for eligible students.
