We understand the need for individuals to receive financial aid for their studies. One of the key solutions is to visit the student finance office of the institution in which you are studying at. Along with applying for student loans through finance houses and of course self funding your studies is another option…yes you may actually have to get a part time job to pay for your education. However there is the route of applying for a bursary or a scholarship which can help assist individuals in financing their studies. The World Wide Web provides a great research platform and we put together a breakdown of online options for individuals in need of financial assistance for their studies in South Africa! Good luck and all the best with your studies!
South African University Options:
The University of the Free State has put together a student portal which has a list of financial aid options for students.
The University of the Witwatersrand Johannesburg has financial aid options for local and foreign students! Nicely done.
Monash South Africa: Has both bursary and scholarship options for students.

The National Sea-and-Sand Institute came to being in 1971 in Hermanus in the South Western Cape.
The main aim was to train the youth as life-guards to do duty on the country’s beaches. Since then more than 10 000 students qualified successfully as life-savers who have been involved in some 15 000 recorded rescue operations. In the past December holiday season alone Sea-and-Sand life-guards on 18 Overstrand beaches rescued 274 bathers in trouble.

Your first steps out of high school may not lead directly to your eventual career but they will begin to shape who you will become. That is why Spirit of Adventure Magaliesburg restructured its GAP year 4 years ago so that we could offer something better. We don’t have much time to waste on earth so we have to pack as much as possible in. With this in mind, we have set up a program which allows you to have a partial break from studying and do a whole lot of living!

Getting an education has never been so important, but how does one go about financing such an expensive investment?A student loan is probably the first and last dread of every student! It’s the endless thought of debt hanging over your head with a little factor called interest still playing with your mind…
However it is still probably the most utilised option and this method has helped thousands of South Africans achieve successful qualifications! So how do you go about sorting out your student loans?
