Limpopo Colleges TVET Bursaries

  • The Department of Higher Education and Training offers bursaries which are available for National Certificate Vocational courses and courses at public TVET Colleges to students who meet the criteria. These bursaries are not loans. The bursaries are administered by the National Student Financial Aid Service (NSFAS).  Other bursaries are also available, which will vary from college to college. Prospective students should enquire at the college at which they plan to enrol as to what bursaries are available for the course that they would like to study.
  • In 2015 approximately 200 000 students at TVET Colleges benefitted from DHET bursaries administered by NSFAS.
  • Department of Higher Education and Training, TVET College bursaries that are administered by the NSFAS, are available but are subject to two important criteria:
  1. The prospective student will be required to undergo a ‘means test’ that will indicate that the student really does need financial assistance. A means test is not an actual test that you must be afraid of – it usually questions your personal situation in order to see if you are someone who must be assisted.
  2. That the student has a good academic performance record.
  • Prospective students who believe that they may meet these criteria should contact their nearest public TVET College.  The college will provide the application forms and oversee the application process.

 Job Shadowing and Practical Workplace Exposure

International Exchange

In an increasingly globalised labour market, a number of public TVET Colleges have international partnerships with similar institutions in various parts of the world. This ensures that education and training is internationally benchmarked with best practice in diverse international settings

    So great to see you thinking ahead!!! Very good spirit!
    Chat to your school’s guidance teacher and speak to your principal, they can offer counselling to you and other matrics.
    Contact the university and go in and see them during your second term, take your school report with you. Ask their advice.

    Present yourself professionally and show that you are determined to succeed. People love a great attitude and will do their best to assist you.

    Ask for assistance COMPLETING financial aid forms and have them ready for submission later in the year for when you need to apply. I’m saying get help from them completing the forms, they are often difficult to do so let them help you prepare them.

    Let me know!

    Best wishes to you!!!

    Hi Shadrack! Content the NSFS by using the links provided in the post or contact the funders directly. When you write to them you must specify the programme, the campus and the amount or no one will take you seriously and they will ignore your request.Unless you’re already registered, please consider other options and try to find alternative opportunities to further your studies by looking for learnerships, apprenticeships and skills programmes. Best wishes, keep looking, keep climbing – you’ll get there if you keep moving in the right direction.

    Hi Manyane
    You are already a step ahead of others as you know who to apply to. So why not apply to the NSFAS? This blog is called ‘Keep Climbing’ because you must take action every day, every minute and hold yourself accountable for failure.
