Bursary Loans

Bursary loans for financially needy students

The University also offers bursary loans for needy students. Remember: A bursary loan is not the same as a bursary.

A bursary refers to money that you do not have to repay, except if you discontinue your studies. A Bursary loan (for example SU or NSFAS bursary loans) is money that you have to repay after completing or upon discontinuation of your studies.
