National Student Financial Aid Scheme

The University of Johannesburg offers a loan option for financially needy and academically deserving students. It is called a NSFAS loan, which is an acronym for the National Student Financial Aid Scheme. A NSFAS loan is an amount of money you borrow from NSFAS to cover the costs associated with your tertiary studies. NSFAS is a statutory body, funded primarily by South Africa's National Department of Education, providing study loans to academically able but financially needy students who wish to study at one of South Africa's public higher education institutions.

NSFAS has appointed the University of Johannesburg (UJ) to administer funds on its behalf. The loan is for full-time undergraduate students with South African citizenship. A NSFAS loan may be used to pay tuition fees, books and University accommodation fees. Students must apply annually for the loan before 1 October of each year.
