As one of the largest Universities in the country with over 400,000 students, the University of South Africa (UNISA) offers quality academic education to the public. Students based both locally and Internationally take courses from its many colleges or affiliates.
Through the UNISA Postgraduate Diploma and Honours bursaries programs, students have been given the opportunity to complete their postgraduate studies. The purpose of these bursaries is to provide financial aid to committed and hard-working students in need of financial aid.
Many students have successfully completed their studies through these programs, which have enabled them to further their education.
The UNISA Postgraduate Diploma and Honours bursaries application will be available from 4 January 2021 until 31 March 2021.
The UNISA Postgraduate Diploma and Honors bursaries are available to all South African students who study a postgraduate diploma or honors degree in any field. Bursaries are awarded based on the availability of funding, eligibility, and academic performance.
A selection committee will consider all applications and decide on the disbursement of tuition fees to the successful candidates. Students need to complete their qualifications within a three-year period.
Students who wish to renew their bursaries must comply with the relevant conditions set by the Postgraduate Bursaries Administration Office. If they cancel a bursary, they will require the student to pay back any monies used from the bursary that was awarded to them.
