More than 175 348 University Students Receive NSFAS Funding for 2017

The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) can confirm that by the 08th of February, 175 348 students have received financial aid to further their studies at any of the 26 public universities for 2017. This includes 67 875 first-entering students and 107 474 returning students. Although the NSFAS application closing date was 20th January, some universities are still in the process of concluding their examinations. We therefore expect these numbers of funded students to increase.

The Scheme worked tirelessly with the assistance of all the institutions of higher learning and the Department of Higher Education and Training, to ensure that the allocation of financial aid for first-time and returning students are allocated before the end of the academic registration period.

We have agreed with universities that while the allocation of grants to new students was a priority, the management of returning students must be coordinated to ensure that universities can immediately accept and register NSFAS returning students if they meet the following criteria:

  • Received NSFAS financial aid in 2016;
  • Satisfied the 50% module pass requirement for the 2016 academic year;
  • Satisfy the N+2 completion requirement; and
  • Signed their 2016 NSFAS agreement forms.

NSFAS has also communicated with at least 9 976 applicants whose applications were unsuccessful, as they did not meet the NSFAS financial eligibility criteria. Students who are unsuccessful may appeal by submitting the “Appeals Form” before a pre-determined closing date in order to be considered by the Appeals Committee. Details of the appeal can be found on the NSFAS website or 0860067327.

Minister Nzimande Says Holders of Fake Qualifications Will be Prosecuted

The Minister of Higher Education and Training, Dr Blade Nzimande, says serious action will be taken against perpetrators of fake qualifications, including prosecuting and publicly naming and shaming those caught doing so.

Commenting on the scourge, after receiving an update this week from the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA), as it continues with its work to track forged national and foreign qualifications — as commissioned by the cabinet last year — the Minister said fraudulent qualifications posed a grave danger to the credibility of the country’s education system.

“This is a matter which we take very seriously, and it is also the reason why we have embarked on legislative measures to curb these phoney qualifications, where we are proposing a roll of shame for holders of such bogus qualifications.

“One of the most precious things any country can have is the credibility of its qualifications and higher education system, which is why we are acting robustly on the scourge. By the way, if one lies about one’s qualifications or produces a false certificate, that is fraud even in terms of existing law,” Minister Nzimande said.

The Minister published new regulations late last year, which will force employers to refer their employees’ degrees for validation and verification.

“Unless employers, institutions and citizens can feel confident that individuals have earned the qualifications that they purport to have, the entire system will lose its legitimacy,” he said.

As part of the regulatory move, SAQA will register the names of holders of bogus certificates on its website — a move that the government hopes will end the growing prevalence of qualification forgeries.

Over the past few years, a number of cases of qualifications fraud — including those involving high-profile figures — have been reported by the media.

The fraudulent qualifications that have been uncovered have ranged in quality from poor copies of legitimate qualifications, to high-quality forgeries that are very difficult to differentiate from the original.

Meanwhile, SAQA reports that between October 1 and December 31 last year (fourth quarter of 2016), 52 foreign qualifications had been found to have been forged, while 17 national qualifications were misrepresented.

As at the end of January 2017, a total of 1 276 qualifications (444 national and 832 foreign qualifications) were also recorded on its list of misrepresented qualifications — with 78 affidavits completed for handover to the Hawks for prosecution.
