Student Financial Assistance: Case For Support

Many young South Africans aspire to finish their degrees in order to contribute meaningfully to their country’s rapidly evolving society. The University of Cape Town (UCT) has pledged to take on the challenge of funding this long-term investment, making sure that no student will be turned away due to a lack of funds. Through increased financial aid programs for both undergraduate and graduate students, we try to make the most of this potential.

In light of the rapidly shifting higher education landscape in South Africa and the lack of stability around government funding, UCT seeks to increase its resource capacity by expanding its donor base. Even if there is a lot of ambiguity surrounding annual price hikes and students’ incapacity to pay these escalating costs, it is imperative to give our kids more choices for postsecondary study. Many of our brightest students are unable to attend university or are forced to give up their studies and pursue compromised career options as a result of financial pressures on families, especially those from middle-class to low-income homes. This results in a loss of the potential contribution that these creative brains could make to modernizing social, political, and economic systems.

Financial Aid

Students pursuing their first undergraduate degree in South Africa (or as permanent residents) have access to financial aid under the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS). The Central Application System that NSFAS is introducing will have an influence on our financial aid policies.

The University of Cape Town is dedicated to offering a comprehensive financial aid program. When a student applies on time and is approved for financial aid, the university wants to help them. Visit the Undergraduate Financial Aid website to learn more about eligibility.

UCT makes sure that the bursaries are given to deserving applicants who exhibit academic distinction and financial need by using a strict screening procedure and detailed application standards. These scholarships have an impact on UCT’s academic community as a whole, strengthening its diversity and inclusivity.
