When the above is in place the Division For Internationalisation will process your loan application and notify you in writing confirming the amount you are eligible for. The confirmation letter together with the acceptance letter from UJ can be used to apply for your student visa.

The funds will only be disbursed to you after you register. As UJ is a foreign school it will take approximately 30 days for the funds to be in your South African Bank Account.
