UWC Faculty of Education Bursary 2022
The Faculty of Education at the University of Western Cape is offering financial assistance to students in need of it. The university understands that not all bright students have the resources to complete their education. Therefore, it will cover the cost on behalf of such students.
For the academic session 2022, the UWC Faculty of Education is offering bursaries to MEd (Master of Education) students. Students can be studying either full-time or part-time but must be in need of financial assistance.
The bursary will cover the entire tuition fees, which depend on the available funds.
Shortlisted candidates would have to sign an agreement, thereby agreeing to register for each year of study and complete their education. The faculty will specify other terms to the shortlisted candidates via email. If you do not receive any communication regarding this, consider your application unsuccessful.
