-The bursaries are available in all fields of study to full-time students who are registered at SU in any postgraduate degree programme, provided that the candidate is not already in possession of a degree on the same level or higher. Full-time students are students who do not work for remuneration for more than 15 hours a week over a period of ten months during the academic year. -Students who meet the requirements for application at the NRF / MRC, are strongly advised to apply, as the values of the bursaries of the NRF and MRC are more substantial than SU Postgraduate Merit Bursaries, and it is in the students’ interest to apply at these statutory councils. -Very few bursaries are available to foreign students and preference is given to students from the South African Development Community (SADC) countries. Students from the SADC countries who have obtained an eligible qualification at a South African university may compete for funds during the regular application round.
