These bursaries are awarded only for studies in the following Engineering study field.

Learners who have completed or are currently in Grade 12 must have achieved the following minimum marks:

Required subjects % Level
Mathematics  60 5
Science  60 5

Candidates who are already studying towards the degree course cannot apply for this opportunity as we only award University of Technology bursaries to S1 or first year students.

University of Technology bursaries are strictly for S1 level of study. Students who have completed S1 will NOT be considered.

If you have passed or are currently busy with Grade 12/N3 Math’s, Physical Science and English, you can apply for a University of Technology bursary.

University of Technology bursaries are only available for those who intend to register for a Bachelor of Engineering Technology degree (the new 4-year programme) which is available at Universities of Technology across South Africa.

The Sasol bursary is a comprehensive bursary which includes the following:

  1. 100% of the prescribed University of Technology tuition fees, registration fees and exam fees.
  2. An amount equal to the average rate for accommodation in a single room at a University of Technology residence at which the Sasol bursar is studying.
  3. This rate is determined by Sasol in conjunction with the university.
  4. An amount for meals based on three meals per day, as determined by the University of Technology.
  5. Book and pocket money.


Please note:

  1. Prescribed tuition fees, registration fees and exam fees are paid directly to the University of Technology.
  2. Students will be required to pay for any repeat subjects.
  3. Fees for accommodation are paid directly to the University of Technology if the student is staying in university-administered accommodation.
  4. In cases where the student elects to stay in non-university administered accommodation, monies in lieu of accommodation and meals will be paid directly to the individual. In such instances, the amounts will be limited to that prescribed in point 3 above.
  5. Book and pocket money will be paid directly to the individual.
  6. Payments in respect of the above are made twice a year. The first payment is made at the beginning of the first semester, and the second payment is made at the beginning of the second semester.
  7. Full details of the payment process and the requirements which must be met are communicated to successful applicants once a bursary has been awarded.
