Even if students have received bursaries during their studies, these often do not cover their full costs, leaving many students with unpaid fees at graduation. Graduating students receive a letter confirming their compliance with all the requirements for their tertiary qualifications. However, those with outstanding fees will only be issued with a degree certificate or an academic transcript once they have settled their debt. For those who have not yet secured employment, this places them on the back foot as they enter the search for employment. Our records show that graduates affected by student debt have increased over the past three years. On average, students carrying debt upon graduation owe more than R30 000 each. Their lingering debt hampers their capacity to contribute to a talented workforce. Your support can help them enter the South African economy with confidence.

Alhoewel studente beurse tydens hul studie ontvang, dek dié dikwels nie hul volle koste nie en heelwat studente het uitstaande studiegeld wanneer hulle afstudeer. Afgestudeerde studente ontvang ’n brief wat bevestig dat hulle aan al die vereistes vir hul tersiêre kwalifikasies voldoen het. Diegene met uitstaande studiegelde ontvang egter eers ’n graadsertifikaat of akademiese simbolestaat nadat hulle hul skuld vereffen het. Diegene wat nog nie werk het nie, is gevolglik op die agtervoet wanneer dit by werk soek kom. Ons rekords toon dat gegradueerdes wat deur studenteskuld geraak word, die afgelope drie jaar toegeneem het. Skuld by die voltooiing van studie beloop gemiddeld meer as R30 000 per student. Die langdurige skuld belemmer studente se vermoë om tot ’n talentvolle werkerskorps by te dra. Jou ondersteuning kan hulle help om die Suid-Afrikaanse ekonomie met vertroue te betree.
