About Undergraduates Bursaries

South Africa is a diverse country with a variety of people, religions, and educational opportunities. However, becoming educated requires large amounts of money which are something that is not always available. Therefore, paying for further studies to get a degree or higher qualification is a big issue.

University and college funding per year can be between R20 000 up to R30 000 for minor studies. If a candidate wants to study a specialized profession costs could rise significantly. Many of the undergraduate studies run over a 4 or 5-year program. Which can make even the lowest fees almost impossible for a normal household!

There is other options for candidates to consider and bursaries for undergraduates is one. Candidates will be required to meet certain specifications and these will depend on the company or institute that offers the bursary. Candidates can also look at student loans, National finance, University financial aid and other options.
