Vut Bursaries

You can apply for Edu-loan at the VUT campus (Finance). Edu-loan offers hassle free educational finance. As long as you, or a family member, receive a salary, paid into a bank account then you could qualify for an Edu-loan. What’s more, if we have an agreement with your, or your family member’s employer, we won’t even have to carry out credit checks.

Once your loan is approved we will:

  • Pay your student fees to the educational institution of your choice.
  • Assure you of affordable interest rates with a fixed monthly instalment.
  • Give you the option of an Edu-Xtras Smart Card for books and accessories.

You don’t even have to pay a deposit.
