Financial Aid

The University of Pretoria cares about all our students. We know that studying at a university comes with a host of expenses for you and your family.

We know that sometimes life gets tough and that your family isn’t always able to help with paying for your fees. Job losses, cash flow crises, unexpected medical expenses and unforeseen tragedies often affect our financial status negatively. #UPCares and we understand this. We know that your education is a priority to you, and that’s why we’re trying to help students by making every rand go further for you and your family. This is how we LIVE THE UP WAY.

To have an IMPACT, we’re compiling a database of all our students who want to be considered for discounts, bursaries, and other forms of funding and financial aid benefits.

Remember that registering on this database is not a guarantee that you will receive funding, but it will help us to offer you funding when there are suitable opportunities available. This database is open to all students, regardless of household income, study programme or year of study.

Current Students

We’re calling on all current students to register themselves on our database to be considered for financial aid in the form of bursaries, discounts, and other funding and financial aid benefits. This database is a means of allocating funds, when they’re available, to where they’re needed the most. Simply register on clickUP by following the simple steps shown there.


Are you a recent graduate with historic debt? UP cares about you and wants you to be able to access the world of work as soon as possible. Apply here so that when there are funds available these can be credited to your student account to offset some of your debt.

Parents and Guardians

We know that paying for university fees might be a strain on your budget. Encourage your child/ward to register on our financial aid database and, as funding becomes available, it will be credited to their student accounts.
