The Department of Higher Education & Training’s TVET Colleges Bursary Scheme has been established to give financial assistance to students who have the potential to succeed at NCV or NATED (Report 191) Studies, but would not be able to do so without financial aid. This scheme is administered by NSFAS (National Students Financial Aid Scheme).

A National Means Test Tool determines who qualifies for the bursary. Students, who do not qualify for NSFAS bursary, will have to pay the full appropriate tuition fees.

Who is eligible for the TVET College Bursary Scheme?

You are eligible to apply for the bursary if you are:

  • A South African Citizen,
  • Registered or intend to register for NCV or NATED (Report 191) Programme,
  • In need of financial assistance,
  • Able to demonstrate potential for academic success.

Will the bursary fund cover all eligible students who apply?

No. It is not possible for the bursary to cover all students in the college due to the limited bursary funding available.

Will students who are awarded bursaries have to pay money back after completion of their studies?

No. TVET College students do not have to pay the money back as it is a bursary allocation and not a loan.

Which Programmes are funded by NSFAS?

  • National Certificate Vocational (NCV) Programmes
  • Nated / Report 191 Programmes

What are the documents that students have to submit when applying for a bursary?

If a student has been granted a bursary and does not progress to the next level, is he/she still eligible for a bursary? NO

Students who do not meet the criteria to progress to the next level of study are viewed as repeaters and will not qualify for Financial Aid. Students, who wish to enrol, repeat a level or switch to another programme, will be expected to finance their studies.
