The amount of financial aid a University of the Free State (UFS) student may receive from the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) can change depending on a number of variables, including the student’s financial need, their year of study, the price of tuition and housing, as well as other related expenses. NSFAS offers a variety of financial aid, such as financial aid for travel, books, meals, and lodging in addition to tuition.
The precise amount a student may receive will be based on their unique situation and the funds that are available at the time. NSFAS offered eligible students enrolled in South African public universities for the academic year a maximum annual combined allowance for tuition, housing, and additional allowances. On the basis of government financial allocations and other variables, this sum could, however, vary from year to year. How Much Do UFS Students Get From NSFAS?
