National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) has decided to reopen 2017 loan applications after receiving requests for deadline extension from parents and students.
The application process for students in colleges will open from January 9 to February 14.
University students will have 11 days to send their applications, from January 9 to 20.
They received about 230 000 applications this year. And it seems like this is more than what they received in previous years.— Xolani Koyana, EWN reporter
NSFAS said they looked at the applications they received and database of the Department of Basic Education and Social Development Department and realised there are more students who will need funding next year.— Xolani Koyana, EWN reporter
