The guidelines relating to entrants and returning students who wish to apply for financial aid are explained above. Applications for financial aid must be done on the NSFAS website – www.nsfas.org.za and NSFAS will respond to applicants in January before registration.
Depending on your family income, and on your academic progress, UKZN may award you a bursary or a scholarship. There is never sufficient funding for all applicants and all applicants are financially screened and listed in academic priority.
Follow the instructions exactly with regard to information required, documents requested, and deadline dates.

WHAT YOU MAY BE AWARDED
IF YOU ARE FROM A REALLY NEEDY FAMILY WITHOUT OTHER FORMS OF FINANCIAL AID AND YOU HAVE REALLY GOOD RESULTS YOU ARE LIKELY TO BE AWARDED FINANCIAL AID.
If your results are mediocre or poor you are UNLIKELY to receive financial aid from the university.
YOU DO NOT NEED TO APPLY FOR A UNIVERSITY SCHOLARSHIP. Whether you are an entrant or an undergraduate, the Scholarships Committee will compare all students with excellent results, and will tell you whether you have been awarded one of the many scholarships. If you are an entrant you may also be awarded a merit award based on achieving excellent results in the Senior Certificate Examination. See under Scholarships for details.
