All students can apply for a loan from the National Students Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS), a government loan scheme with the added incentive of a bursary conversion (max 40%) depending on academic performance. The parent’s/family’s contribution to the student’s study cost is called the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) and is calculated using the Government’s National Means Test.

HOW TO APPLY FOR VHEMBE TVET COLLEGE BURSARIES
It is important for students to apply for bursaries, scholarships and or loans before the closing date. Students are advised to plan for their studies prior to registering at Vhembe TVET College. Once a student is registered with the university, it is advisable to always check his/ her emails for information about bursaries that have been advertised.
Applying for a loan, bursary or scholarship does not guarantee you will get it as we deal with large number of students that exceed the funds that are available.

Students are urged to attach all the necessary documents as stated in the application form.
