A Diverse Set of Western Cape Government Bursary Opportunities 2018 for Intended Undergraduate or Postgraduate Students
The Western Cape Government’s Bursary Programme’s Schemes
Western Cape Government offers bursary supports to help to finance South African people who intend to take their first Undergraduate or Postgraduate degree, yet have problems in fully-funding their university-related costs by themselves.
Bursary schemes from the Western Cape Government vary from the fully- or partially-funded ones to the “work-back” loan schemes that permit recipients to pay their fees after working and graduating from the assigned university. In addition, bursaries are given to each specific study programme’s students depending on the Western Cape Government’s national- or provincial-based skilled work needs.
