Buffalo City College Nsfas Application

The college offers financial aid by helping students with applications for bursaries at various institutions and agencies.

There are various companies, agencies and organisations you can apply to for financial support, but the main source of support for TVET colleges is the National Department of Education bursary fund administered by the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS).

Once you have been accepted at the college and you have been allocated a student number, you can immediately apply for financial aid.

Before registering as a student, you will have to establish whether or not you will have funds to finance your studies. In addition to the actual course/module fees, please keep in mind that you have to make provision for books, equipment if applicable to your programme, transport, accommodation and general living expenses.

Please consider the safety of the cashiers and make direct bank payment instead of cash payments at the campus. Use the student number as reference.

Buffalo City College offers financial assistance to full-time students in the form of bursaries in collaboration with the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) for financially challenged students.
