UCT Undergraduate student funding
As of 1 August 2016, the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) opened its student-centred application model. First-time applications for financial aid, as well as funding renewal for those students who are already recipients of NSFAS funding, will be handled centrally via NSFAS. Although applicants may have applied to multiple institutions for admission to study, only one financial aid application directly to NSFAS will be required.
UCT will co-fund and be part of this new student-centred application model and all students and learners who need financial assistance should apply to NSFAS via the latter's on-line application system.
