5 ways to pay for an education

The new year isn’t too far away. Education can be expensive so planning ahead is essential.

You’ll need a Grade 12 certificate with university exemption and must prove your acceptance to an accredited tertiary institution. Someone will need to sign surety for the loan (often a parent), and in most cases repayments start once studies are completed.

Capitec Bank offers credit plans up to R200 000 over 84 months. The money is available immediately and you get retrenchment and death cover. READ MORE
