Financial Support

Your investment towards your future career is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. In the past, Technical and Vocational Education and Training was not always affordable to all. However, with the financial options that are available today studying has become accessible to everyone.

The aim of this section of the website is to illustrate the various options that are available to you to assist in financing your studies and to demonstrate just how manageable it is to pay your studies.
