Varsity College NSFAS
NSFAS is a loan and bursary scheme funded by the Department of Higher Education and Training for those who do not have the financial means to fund their studies and / or cannot access bank funding, study loans or bursaries.
SCHOLARSHIPS, BURSARIES AND AWARDS
First year students can apply for academic awards based on their Grade 12 results. And while studying with us our current students can apply for awards based on their academic achievement in the previous academic year with us.
In acknowledgement of our new students’ previous leadership roles at their school, we reward these students for their roles as Head Prefects and Deputy Prefects, or equivalent.
Teacher education scholarships
We are investing in the teachers of the future. Scholarship opportunities are available for those who wish to follow a career choice in teaching. Our School of Education has a range of qualifications to consider in line with this career area.
Student Engagement Bursaries
At Varsity College we encourage our students to participate in sports, social and our community. We have two committees that dedicate their time to organizing and engaging in such activities. Members of these committees have an opportunity to be awarded bursaries for their involvement.
Sporting success earns our students opportunities for scholarships and bursaries. Our students can apply for campus sports bursaries, or form part of our Sports Life programme. Bursaries and scholarships apply to sports where students may represent the brand for team sports or at an individual level. Discretionary bursaries may also be granted where student has achieved at a national or provincial level. A number of sports bursaries are campus specific.
Please book an appointment with a campus sports administrator at a Varsity College campus in your area
