The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) bursary is a government bursary which provides financial support to more than a million tertiary students in South Africa.

While NSFAS covers various costs they also provide students with digital learning devices, such as laptops, which they need to complete their tertiary studies. In order to receive these laptops students must place an order online.

Here is how to place an order and receive your laptop:

  • Register at a NSFAS accredited institution:
    • NSFAS funded students at TVET colleges: You must be a continuing student who was registered in 2020 and currently registered to study in 2021.
    • NSFAS funded students at universities: You must be registered to study at any public university; both first-time entering and continuing students may apply for a learning device.
  • Collect, complete and submit a Digital Learning Device (DLD) form to your Financial Aid Office (FAO) on campus.
