About government bursaries
Government-funded bursaries are offered to students to help pay for the courses and training required for certain professions. You do not have to repay a government bursary after you graduate.
Most of these bursaries have eligibility criteria based on the course you’d like to study and the specialism you choose within that course. The funding you are offered may be graded based on the length of the course and/or your household income. Some government bursaries require you to apply for the bursary so the provider can assess your eligibility.
More funding options
Students are sometimes able to receive funding from multiple sources. So, whether you’re eligible for a government bursary or not, you can still explore other options. Here are some other scholarships and bursaries you may be eligible for:
