The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) will this week educate more than 3000 learners on not only the new application process but to also provide teachers with information on the admission requirements at tertiary institutions.

On Monday, the organisation partnering with the provincial education department launched their Open Week at Sinethemba High School in Philippi.

During the launch information regarding NSFAS’ bursaries and student loans, and encourage them to apply early for academic admission and funding will be shared.

“The aim of this week long workshop is to empower the teachers and the learners regarding applications for admission, funding options available to learners as well as career guidance for the learners.

We have partnered with the education department and the tertiary institutions so that they can share their information so learners can make informed decisions. During the course of the week learners from various schools will come here to be part of the workshop,” said Nsfas Chief Executive Msulwa Daca.

Daca said that the event was also important that they were introducing the new application process for Nsfas funding.

“The application process for year 2017 will be for the first time conducted online with applicants receiving their results before the start of term next year.

Before students had to have money to register before applying at the student financial office of the particular but this has been changed now they can do it either submitting online, via email and even by post for those that can’t access the internet,” he explained.

Education department metro south district director Glen van Harte emphasized the importance of these learners acquiring the sufficient information regarding high learning institutions.
