Stellenbosch University takes note of the urgent concerns of students regarding their NSFAS funding for 2021. All first-time entry students (FTEN) who have received confirmation of their NSFAS funding will be able to register. Returning students with confirmation of funding in the form of a bursary or loan will also be allowed to register if their confirmed funding exceeds their debt of the previous year. The media statement by the Minister has just been released indicating “that Cabinet agreed that funding should be reprioritised from the budget of the Department of Higher Education and Training in order to ensure that all deserving NSFAS-qualifying students are able to receive funding support for the 2021 academic year and NSFAS will now be able to release funds for new students qualifying for NSFAS bursary support".
