Students need to meet the criteria as set out by NSFAS/DHET, and apply online directly with NSFAS on their website


Other sources of funding may become available during the study year when external donors or institutions offer bursaries, and they are then advertised on the University’s website.

SMS notifications are sent to students with special needs and disabilities who meet the criteria, when such external bursaries are advertised on our website. It is therefore essential for students to update their contact details on the UP Portal (“Student Centre”).

Students with special needs and disabilities are also welcome to apply for any other loan or bursary.
