Bursaries and Loans
Annually, North-West University grants bursaries and loans to students who qualify.
First-year academic bursaries
These bursaries are awarded automatically to all full-time students who:
register to study at NWU for a first degree for the first time after Grade 12,
obtained an average of 75% or higher during the Grade 12 final examination.
The bursary is awarded according to the prospective student's true average obtained. This average is calculated by adding the actual percentages for six subjects excluding Life Orientation, obtained in the final exam. Please note: The percentage obtained for non-designated subjects is adjusted downwards by 10% for the purpose of calculating merit bursaries. For further information, see the table of designated and non-designated subjects under Admission requirements.
