Bursaries & scholarships

UCT merit & need awards

Despite active steps taken by UCT, it is impossible to support all needy postgraduate students. Financially needy students are those whose family income amounts to R200 000 per annum or less. Students applying for need will be considered but must ensure that they are able to provide some contribution towards their studies via their own resources, external bursaries or part-time employment.

The following criteria have to be met:

  • The students must be South African citizens or permanent residents
  • They must be financially needy (see above)

Bursaries are not available for diplomas, certificates, the LLB or the HDE & BArch degree.

The bursary value may vary.

The closing date for new applications for merit and need-based have been extended to: 9 November 2015.
