What are Loans and Grants?
Student loans and Grants are funded by the government. Loans will need to be repaid after your study period ends. However, grants do not need to be paid back. Both the student loans and grants are provided based on your eligibility.
When to apply?
You can apply for a loan before you are admitted to a program or registered in classes. Apply at least 2 months before the start of classes. You must apply for funding every semester. Loan applications are processed within 6 weeks.
How to apply?
You are automatically assessed for grants when you apply for a student loan and if you qualify, you will be advised with your loan approval.
