EP 1: Preparing for the future

We started looking at the national student financial aid scheme (NSFAS) to kick off our first show. We asked matric learners what they know about NSFAS; university students' experience with NSFAS since it has been turned into a bursary scheme. We also discussed a telephone conversation with Ms. Thami Matiwana from the Rhodes University Financial Aid Office. The purpose of this show was to show some challenges that many first-time entering students face or make with NSFAS.
