Bad news for NSFAS recipients

NSFAS got more than 650 000 applications for the year 2021.

Training lobbyist Hendrick Makaneta has approached the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) to distribute all capabilities that won't be supported on its site.

"There's no uncertainty that right now there is a ton of disarray in light of the fact that most of understudies don't have data about courses that won't be financed. NSFAS is by all accounts speaking with establishments about choices that influence the eventual fate of understudies, yet understudies are not welcomed ready. It is justifiable that as we progress into the fourth mechanical upheaval, a few capabilities may must be eliminated to get ready understudies for the new world economy that will require distinctive skills."Higher Education Minister Dr. Edge Nzimande said the National Student Aid Financial Scheme (NSFAS) has gotten in excess of 650 000 applications for the 2021 scholastic year.

Nzimande has ascribed the expansion to the effect of COVID-19 on positions.

"We anticipate that this number should increment considerably as past experience has shown that it is over the most recent fourteen days of the application cycle when a few understudies will in general apply in more prominent numbers. Harsh appraisals propose that there will be more than 800 000 new applications for the 2021 application cycle by the end date at end of November 2020. This expansion additionally is because of conservations and loss of occupations or pay because of COVID-19."
