Student's Stories

The reason for my fees being outstanding is because I am not employed. I don’t have parents. I support myself by working jobs when I can. I last worked my night shift job in September 2016
amount outstanding R29 000

I have applied for NSFAS funding for 2018 but I am still awaiting the outcome. I find myself in this situation because I was previously classified as an international student and as such could not apply for financial aid from the government. My father is a driver for Shoprite and only makes a salary of less than R 122 000 a year
amount outstanding R56 820

I am a private paying student ever since I started in this institution (2013). NSFAS has always rejected my application since then till now. I am supported by my mother who has had to take loans each year to cover my expenses at school
amount outstanding R20 000

My NSFAS application for 2016 was not received, accorded to phone calls. When I called I was told to apply on the next application period for 2018. I had no study material, pushed through with notes from lecture both semesters. There is no one in my family who can afford the fees. I am supported by a pensioner who earn R1600.00 p.m. Please consider my application I cannot access my results
amount outstanding R27 230



The SRC and the Student Alumni Society (SAS) hereby present to you the MyMandela Challenge. This is an invitation to all staff and students to donate R100 towards the #MyMandela_Fund- an SRC fundraising initiative that assists students with paying off outstanding debt, meals and purchasing textbooks.

The Student Alumni Society (SAS) has proposed to their members to donate 20% of each members’ membership fee towards the SRC #MyMandela Campaign. Question is what will you do?

The Challenge

1. Pledge your R100 to the MyMandela_Fund
2. Take a picture with your name and I support e.g. I am Amanda MEMEZA and I support the MyMandela_Campaign
3. Send the picture to (we will upload it on the SRC website and social media)
4. Challenge someone in your network to do the same

On Madibaz Tuesdays the SRC will release an update on how much has been raised through the MyMandela_Challenge.

The SRC remains committed to changing the lived experiences of students at Mandela University. We look forward to partnering with you in this endeavour.
