Is Gauteng City College funded by Nsfas?

NSFAS is a public institution that funds college and university students from low-income families.

The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) bursary focuses on funding public institutions of higher education such as public universities and TVET colleges. NSFAS aims to give an opportunity to underprivileged students who might not otherwise afford to fund their tertiary studies.

Gauteng City College is a private institution which unfortunately means that it’s students won’t be able to receive funding from NSFAS. Students who attend Gauteng City College  may have other bursary options which may stem from bursary donations to fund their studies.

Whereas private colleges like Gauteng City College have stakeholders whose focus is on education and profit-making to keep operations running smoothly, these students may consider Fundi Educational leans or loans from South African banks. The College may also offer discounts on full payment of fees as well as flexible payment options.
