Financial Aid


Mr Douw, hard at work


NMMU offers various forms of bursaries and loans, including our scholar and student merit awards which reward top academic performance. We also administer funds from corporate donors and from the National Student Financial Aid scheme (NSFAS). NSFAS funding is especially aimed at assisting needy students who display academic merit.


Aims and objectives of Financial Aid

The provision of financial aid to students has a threefold aim and is covered by the following objectives:

  • To recruit top students to the University,
  • To promote and reward academic excellence at the University,
  • To enable students who are both financially needy and academically deserving to gain access to NMMU.

The first two objectives will be met by providing merit bursaries to prospective and current undergraduate students, while the third objective will be met by allocating loans under the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS).
