Concerning Financial Assistance
The Directorate of Financial Aid’s main function and mandate is to oversee and administer various student funding alternatives for qualified students in accordance with sponsor standards. Our goal is to guarantee that all qualified students on all of our campuses have access to these monies. We intend to distribute the monies through a fair and open application and review process.
We provide over R1.4 billion in financial aid to around 30 000 TUT students each year. If you’re not one of them, you should do everything you can to secure financial assistance.
