HCI has a bursary program that will cover study in any field at any University, The University of Technology and only a few selected FET colleges in South Africa. They purely provide learners with financial assistance if they deserve it and they will assist in any year of study.
The HCI bursary program is developed to assist financially strained candidates that deserve an academic qualification and to obtain such a qualification. They assist in undergraduate studies and any other year of studies for a first-time qualification or candidates that enroll for Honors at any University in South Africa and also including the University of Technology in South Africa.
Their bursaries are only partial bursaries and they provide the candidates with an amount of R33000 making up 67% – 75% of the tuition fees. The amount will differ depending on the candidate’s needed assistance according to the household income.
It is only a partial cover so does not include housing, books, meals, transport or expenses. HCI will NOT pay for REPEAT studies or modules.
