Thousands of South African students are studying using NSFAS, as they cannot afford to pay for their tuition fees.
Although education is considered to be the key to success, the ever increasing tuition fees could spell the end of many disadvantaged students dreams.
2016 NSFAS cut off date for application was 30 November which was difficult for many students to reach the deadline application due to the #FeesMustFall movement.
Therefore NSFAS has just announced that it will open a new window for students who didn’t apply by 30 November, students can apply from 9 Jan.
Students went crazy about the latest NSFAS update and this is what went down:
