TVET Courses that NSFAS Funds


Can’t afford to pay for your own studies? Join a government-funded training course and get financial support from the National Student Financial Aid Scheme(NSFAS). Here are the fields that NSFAS funs in TVET colleges.

What is a TVET college?

Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Colleges have been established by government to respond to the scarce skills shortages in the country.

A TVET qualification equips students with the vocational and occupational skills needed to find employment in South Africa.

The colleges offer a variety of technical programmes that vary in duration allowing learners to choose between short courses and formal diploma programmes.

Who is NSFAS?

NSFAS is government’s leading agent for administering funds to underprivileged students in South Africa for the purpose of increasing access to higher education.

Through its procedures and systems NSFAS identifies students who meet the criteria to receive financial support and dispenses funding accordingly.

NSFAS Funded Training

Both these government backed entities are working together to promote further education amongst poorer students.


As a result NSFAS funds Ministerial approved programmes at TVET colleges.

Students must find out from their respective colleges whether or not their courses are funded, however NSFAS has released a general list of funded programmes offered through TVET colleges. These include:

Engineering courses – (National Certificate -Vocational) NQF levels 2-4 & Report 191 N1-N6; Engineering and Related Design; Electrical Infrastructure; Civil Engineering Construction and Information Technology & Computer Science

Business courses – Business & Utility Studies (National Certificate – Vocational) NQF levels 2-4 & Report 191 N1-N6; Management; Marketing; Office Administration;

Commerce courses – Finance; Economics & Accounting;

Hospitality and Tourism

Safety, Transport and Logistics

How To Pass UNISA Supplementary Examinations

How To Pass UNISA Supplementary Examinations

Here are a few helpful tips from students studying with us and from around the web!

1. Study everything; do not stick to past papers

This provides you with valuable knowledge of the course and you wouldn’t get thrown off with a new style of question during the exams. Set out a realistic timetable for your study. Write down your exam dates, and then organize your study time accordingly. Allocate more time to courses you find more difficult. Cramming your text doesn’t help.

2. Use mind maps as a method of making notes

A Mind Map is visual map of your ideas, laid out according to importance and centered on a central thought. Take the central subject and then organize your notes around this point.

3. Self-attempt exam papers

Attempt exam papers by yourself first and then meet together in your study group to discuss your answers. Study groups work well only if you are prepared to put in the effort.

4. Create an exam atmosphere

Write answers as if you were literally in the exam room – time yourself using standard exam times. Be sure to complete the past paper under exam conditions as this will give you a perfect idea of how ready you are for the exam.

5. For Multiple choice exams

Use the process of elimination to arrive at the correct answer. Try to anticipate the correct response before you are distracted by seeing the options that your instructor has provided. If you see the response that you anticipated, circle it and then check to be sure that none of the other responses is better. Eliminate the options you know for sure are wrong and select the best option that answers the question.

Plan Your UNISA Studies: 7 Tips to Consider

 Plan Your UNISA Studies: 7 Tips to Consider

Cathren has been kind enough to explain to us how she plans her studies and keeps track of all the modules she still needs to pass to complete her qualification.

  1. When planning your studies always consult your curriculum it tells you how many modules you need to do to pass that year
  2. Compile a spreadsheet with the modules you passed and what year they fall under.
    1. (See the Example Spreadsheet for more information)
  3. Before choosing your modules, calculate how many modules you need to pass to complete an academic year. For example: the BADMIN degree has 32 modules; the first year is 12 modules, second year 10 and third year 10.
  1. Look at your compulsory modules and do those first – they normally form the prerequisites for the second year and sometimes third depending on your degree.
  2. Each degree normally has two majors. The first is determined by the degree. In the case of BADMIN degree; it is Public Admin and you choose the second major.
  3. As long as you meet the prerequisites you can register the modules of your choice from the second year.
  4. Lastly, register for the amount of modules you are comfortable and can cope with. The speed at which you complete your degree is up to you.

Once you have a plan it is time to begin studying. Here are some amazing study tips provided by a professional UNISA student to get you started.

How to deal with Study Tiredness

How to deal with Study Tiredness

Tired. Weary. Burned out. Worn down. Drained.

Whatever you call it, there will probably come a point in which you’ll feel absolutely exhausted by everything going on in your life.

It’s tough stuff juggling academic studies, family and work responsibilities all at the same time.

Why, it can be enough to have you thinking of dropping out of college.

But don’t. The key to avoiding academic fatigue so you can stay in college and finish your degree is pretty straightforward: manage your energy, not your time.

Here are 5 effective fatigue fighters:

  1. Take care of your physical body. Eat right. Sleep well. Breathe deep. Get some exercise. Hydrate enough. A little self-care goes a long way.
  1. Pick your peak time. Do the hard stuff when you’re at your sharpest. That may be 4 a.m. or 3 p.m. Everybody’s different. Not sure when’s your best time? Keep an activity log for a few days and note when you have the most energy and mental clarity, then structure your activities accordingly.
  1. Learn to let go. Sometimes you can’t do it all. Remember, work is infinite but time is finite. There’s always more to do. And there are only 24 hours in a day. Top tactic: focus on the most important tasks, and focus on only 3-5 of those at most.
  1. Give yourself a break. Long hours don’t necessarily equate to productivity. While seemingly contrary, a short or long break can boost productivity. Try stepping away from things for a little bit and see if you don’t come back stronger, fresher and more focused.
  1. Reboot. A nap. A walk. A snack. Everyone has something that re-energizes them. Find what works for you and build it into your day. Need help? Search “energy break ideas” for a list of things to try.

All of us have experienced anxiety, stress or tension at some time or another. Many students suffer from stress at some time during their course. This is usually caused by feelings of not being able to cope with the workload or situation. Stress symptoms include physical emotional, mental and social manifestations.

The following are some of the many symptoms that might indicate that you are experiencing anxiety, stress or tension:

  • Exhaustion/getting tired very easily
  • Muscle tension
  • Heart palpitations/accelerated heart rate
  • Sweating or hot flushes
  • Shortness of breath
  • Nausea or abdominal discomfort
  • Dry mouth or the urge to swallow repeatedly
  • Feeling dizzy or light-headed
  • Feeling sad or depressed
  • Feelings of helplessness
  • Fear of losing control or going crazy

How to deal with stress related to your studies

It is not abnormal to feel some anxiety at times, in fact feelings of anxiety can help to motivate you. If, however, you feel that stress or anxiety is affecting your studies, a first option is to seek help, by contacting the Career Counsellor, via our Call Centre.

The aim of this section is to equip you with techniques, in order to maintain control when you feel that situations (i.e. studies), people and events place excessive demands on you.

  • Relax: Take deep breaths as this automatically slows down your breathing and creates a calming effect. Breathe deeply for several minutes.
  • Remove yourself from the stressful situation: Give yourself a break if only for a few minutes.
  • Prioritise: Try to prioritise a few truly important things and let the rest slide for now.
  • Realistic goals: Set realistic goals for yourself. Reduce the number of events going on in your life in order to reduce the feelings of overload.
  • Don’t overwhelm yourself by fretting about your entire workload. Handle each task as it comes, or selectively deal with matters in some priority.
  • Think Positive Thoughts: Try to avoid continually thinking negative thoughts, such as, “I’ll never be able to do this” or “It is too much work to get through”. These are very destructive thoughts, and they can affect your confidence and your performance. Try to make a list of positive things, such as – “I can do it with a bit of hard work”.
  • Exercise Regularly: Physical activity is a great stress reliever because it channels physical and mental energy. Exercise also promotes deeper, more restful sleep.
  • Get enough sleep
  • Make a timetable if you are overloaded with work and do not have enough time. Identify what you can and can’t do.
  • Ask your tutor for advice if you need to.
  • Hand something in. Some students delay getting down to assignments and then rush them and start to worry. Other students again, try to perfect one piece of work and then cannot complete other course work and start to worry. Then there are also the students who are so concerned that the work is no good that they cannot hand it in. To hand in an assignment will alleviate your worry, and the comments you receive back from your tutor will assist you in your next assignments.
  • Avoid self-medication or escape: Alcohol and drugs can mask stress. They don’t help you to deal with the problems.

How to study for exams

How to study for exams

Everybody studies differently and we all have certain things that work for us. Each school subject or university module demands different types of studying and it’s up to you to decide the best approach that will get the information into your head and onto that exam script.

However, there are a few things that everyone can do to study more effectively. Having worked with thousands of students (and having been students ourselves once upon a time), we have put together 5 simple tips that will help you minimise the stress and maximise the marks in the upcoming exam period.

Read also: How to Pass Matric with Distinctions

Make a study plan (and stick to it!)
We all know the old saying: “If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail”. This most certainly applies to studying and one of the most important tips we can give is to make a proper study plan. Start off by marking all your exams down on a calendar – this can either be an electronic calendar (Google or Outlook, for example) or you can print a blank calendar for the exam period and stick it on your wall. The most important thing is that it’s easily accessible and allows you to see each day and week clearly. Once you have your exams marked on the calendar, figure out what material you need to cover for each exam. This can be broken down by the different sections of the course/subject, or even by the chapters of the textbook. Then allocate enough time on your calendar for each section or chapter and be sure to leave time for revision before the exam.

Write notes as you study
Even if you’ve made great notes during classes or lectures, the process of writing down key pieces of information as you study will help you to retain the information while also organising it in your memory more effectively. Use different colours if you want or even draw diagrams and pictures – figure out what works best for you and develop your own system. While some people may recommend typing the notes out, our advice is to hand write the notes as this has been proven to be the most effective method. Read more about  this research. Whether it’s formulas, lists or concepts, this approach is extremely effective for memory retention because the act of slowing down to interpret what you’re writing will force you to internalise the knowledge. Then, when you get to the revision stage, you can go back over your study notes and make sure everything is in your head.

Work in pairs or groups
This doesn’t work for everyone but studying together with one or two friends can be very effective in understanding important concepts and organising your thoughts. You’ll be surprised how much a discussion with a peer can help you to work through and understand concepts, which then makes it easier to retain that information. One approach you can take is to ‘teach’ each other different sections or topics. By teaching your friends, you’ll be able to find the key points and organise the information into a coherent structure.

Eat, sleep and exercise!
Although it’s not exactly a study tip, we can’t stress enough the importance of your physical and mental health during the stressful exam period. Try and eat regular, healthy meals and ensure you get between 7 and 8 hours of sleep a night. Even if you’ve left things late and need to do a bit of ‘cramming’, proper nutrition and sleep will make your study time much more effective. Trying to force concepts and information into a tired, hungry brain gets more and more difficult as your brain gets more tired and hungry. It’s also important make time for exercise – this will increase your energy levels and reduce stress. Even a quick 15 to 20-minute walk can do wonders for your concentration and memory retention.

Be kind to yourself and remember, they’re just exams!
Of course exams are important and of course there is a lot of pressure to succeed. But don’t forget that one exam or set of exams is not the ultimate test of your ability or the final mark of success. Believe in yourself and be kind to yourself – take breaks when you’re tired and treat yourself when you’ve stuck to your study plan. And remember, you’ve got this!

Means: Application successfully processed and funding process has been completed.

What you need to do: Register and attend Classes.

Awaiting Evaluation

Means: The application has been received and needs to be assessed by a case worker at NSFAS to ensure that all information on the application has been correctly captured.

What you need to do: Wait. No action required. A message will be sent if funding is approved and academic admission is confirmed.

How to Do Your Budget as a Student

Everyone needs a budget, whether you’re married with kids or a student embarking on an educational journey. While making and sticking to a budget may seem like a daunting task, the process can actually be easier than you think. There are a number of ways to save a few bucks every month.

Here are 4 helpful tips to get you started.

1. Skip the Credit

If you don’t have the liquid cash to buy something, then don’t. Adding onto mounting credit card debt can be a dangerous thing, especially if you don’t have much willpower in the spending department. Sure, having a credit card may seem like a life-saver at times, but if you don’t have the funds available to pay off your bills in full and on time every month, you can find yourself quickly being buried in interest charges.

2. Don’t Let Food Eat Up Your Finances

As a student, eating out may seem like the easiest thing to do when it’s feeding time. While there most likely isn’t a shortage of restaurants and eateries in and around your school, you might be leaving your wallet empty at the end of the month while your stomach may be full.

It’s fine to eat out every now and then, but the majority of your meals should be eaten in. Make sure you are careful about how much you’re spending on dining out. Take advantage of grocery store specials and prepare most of your meals yourself to save a bundle at the end of the month.

Creating a budget – and sticking to it – can help you keep your finances in check

3. Buy Used Textbooks Whenever Possible

Textbooks can be a massive expense when you’re in college. While you can’t really do without them, you can buy them at significant savings when you shop in used book shops.

Many colleges and universities have used student co-op bookstores where you can either buy textbooks used, or even rent them for a certain time period. In addition, unless you need your old textbooks for future needs, sell them when you’re done with them, and put that money towards next year’s books.

Click here to download the XLS file student budget template.xls.

4. Sit Down and Create Your Budget

An effective budget needs to be put down on paper or via a spreadsheet from a student budget template. On this budget, make a list of all your forms of incomes (including your job, loans, parents, etc.), followed by all your expenses (such as rent, books, food, etc.).

Make sure to differentiate between your needs versus your wants. The final number that you calculate should not be a negative number. If it is, you need to make some adjustments to make sure your take-home pay covers all your expenses.

To make things simple for you, consider taking advantage of an effective online tool to help you set up a budget and manage your finances. Mint.com offers free, unbiased recommendations to help you save money and budget effectively.

President Zuma Announced Free Education For Poor and Middle Class Students Starting from 2018

President Zuma has responded to the Fees Must Fall campaign with a major announcement on student fees for varsity and college students.

President Zuma has made a surprise announcement that poor and middle class students will be fully funded for university and college education.

In a statement on Saturday the President has announced changes to the funding of post-school education but gave no details on how the policy would be funded. The changes are expected to cost R12,4 Billion in 2018.

2018 Bursaries and Scholarships

With changes to the definition of ‘poor and middle class’, over 90% of SA households will now have access to free higher education.

The new programme will begin next year and be phased in over 5 years. NSFAS loans will be converted to grants that don’t have to be paid back. The grants will cover tuition, study material, food, transport and accommodation.

The Director General of the Department of Higher Education and Training was confident that the institutions would be ready to roll our these plans at the start of 2018. He praised the announcement as it was putting more investment into the system and would ensure that education would be accessable for more poor families.

This decision is a culmination of many engagements with the inter-ministerial committee and other departments and roleplayers. The DG was confident that universities and colleges had already been in discussion with his department ahead of the announcement so would be able to implement the policy for next year’s intake.

There will be no fee increased next year for students from households earning up to R600 000 per year.

The statement from the President was released just ahead of the ANC’s elective conference where the party’s next leader will be chosen.

Some of the major elements of the announcement include:

ON HISTORIC DEBT

The matter in relation to the management of NSFAS debt due to its complexity will be dealt with by the Minister of Higher Education and Training after due diligence has been undertaken by the Department of Higher Education and Training; Department of Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation and the National Treasury to determine the quantum of funding required.

ON THE NATIONAL STUDENT FINANCIAL AID SCHEME (NSFAS)

• Grants for poor and working class South African students at universities and TVET colleges will continue to be managed and administered by the National Student Financial Aid Scheme through their recently completed student centred-model.

ON STUDENT ACCOMODATION

• The building of new student accommodation and refurbishment of old student housing at both universities and TVET colleges will be given urgent attention, with priority given to Historically Disadvantaged Institutions.

ON ONLINE AND BLENDED LEARNING

5 Tips to Help you Find The Right Courses to Study

Finding the fight courses to study can be a hustle sometimes, that is why I have compiled this short article to help you and others to make an informed decisions.

5 Tips to Help you Find The Right Courses to Study

1. What are you really interested in?

It’s really important to think about what you are interested in, and what course you want to study. Is it because you can see your exciting, glittering career ahead? Or is it because it’s what your parents want? By questioning yourself now, you can work out the exact path you want your course to take you on.

2.Where would you like to study?

There are really two parts to this. Where is the best country to specialise in this subject area? Maybe it’s a country with plenty of internship and graduate work opportunities in that industry, or a city that has access to specific resources. If you’re interested in marine biology, why not head straight to the world’s largest coral reef in Australia and learn right at the source?
It’s also a good idea to ask yourself: where in the world would you love to live for a few years? This is an opportunity to learn a new language or adopt a new culture, make amazing friends, and experience a very different way of life. And if you’re happy in your life, you’ll be happy in your study.

3.How do you like to study?

Hopefully you have some idea by now of how you prefer to study. And hopefully the answer is not ‘by sleeping’ or ‘by crossing my fingers as I walk into the exam hall.’ Some people prefer final exams, others like regular assignments to keep them busy throughout the year. Some like theory, others like practical hands-on application. Some like to work in groups, others like to work individually. Some like to present their assignment verbally, others prefer to create written reports. Choose a course that suits your study style, and you will be more confident in your success. Or, if you want to challenge yourself, choose a course that will take you out of your comfort zone!
