Prospective students wanting to apply for 2023 NSFAS bursaries will be able to go ahead and submit their NSFAS applications on my NSFAS from 28 September.
In efforts to make applying for NSFAS easier and more accessible, the scheme will be providing applicants with more options when it comes to how to apply. These include through a USSD code, a new mobile app and through WhatsApp.
Not only will applicants be able to apply using these platforms, they will also be able to track their NSFAS application and cancel it as well.
Earlier this month, NSFAS explained that they recently conducted a testing exercise to test the readiness of their application system for the 2023 academic year application period. It was that a group of students took the opportunity to submit a funding application during the testing exercise.
NSFAS has made it clear that these students will not need to reapply when the 2023 NSFAS application period opens.
