TSiBA offers a limited number of scholarships to achievers and aspiring business leaders who would otherwise not have the financial means to study.

Applications for the 2018 academic year are closed. Keep an eye out on the website and our social media pages for an update of when applications for 2019 will open. Alternatively, send an email with your contact details to our Admissions office .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) and we will add you to our database for updates.

To apply for a TSiBA Scholarship, you must meet the minimum requirements listed below:

- You must be in possession of a National Senior Certificate (Grade 12)
- Bachelor’s Pass with Mathematics above 30%, or Maths Literacy above 75%, English above 50%
- Commerce subjects are advantageous

To apply to TSiBA Education follow these simple steps:

Submit completed application form ensuring every section is completed with all compulsory supporting documents attached, or your application may not be considered. For non-online applications you can deliver by hand at our Pinelands Campus or email: .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) (no faxes or posts accepted).

If your application meets our criteria you will be requested to book and write the National Benchmark Test, which is designed to assess your Numeracy and Literacy skills. If you have already written the NBT, you must attach a copy of your results to your application form before submitting it.

Please use Internet Explorer or Firefox to navigate on the NBT website.
• Access the NBT website
• Click on “Book a Test” and then follow prompts
• Where it says select institution you are applying to, select any institution on the list (TSiBA is not yet listed on the Institutions list).
• A letter confirming your registration and containing an EasyPay barcode will be available for you to download and print after you click SUBMIT.
• You must take your registration letter to an EasyPay Paypoint to pay for the testing fees.
• You may also pay on the EasyPay website:
• It is not necessary to bring these to the test site, but you should print out and keep copies, as results will only be issued for paid tests.
• Registration is date- and venue-specific. If you miss your scheduled test, you must re-register and pay again. You will be able to access your results only if you have paid for any tests for which you were registered.

To progress in the process you will be invited for an interview to assess your entrepreneurial and leadership achievements, attitude and compatibility with the TSiBA culture. This also provides an excellent opportunity for you to also meet TSiBA staff, ask questions and assess TSiBA for yourself.

Note to Foreign & Recognition of Prior Learning applicants: Interview will only be scheduled if all necessary documentation has been submitted (as per the application form and guidelines).

If you are in Grade 12 at the time of application, TSiBA may offer you a notice of conditional acceptance about your acceptance based on good results of your interview, NBT and other evaluations.

Please note: A final offer can only be made once TSiBA has received a certified copy of your final matric results. Applicants who have already completed matric must provide a certified copy for final assessment.

The final step in our selection process is full participation in the compulsory 1-day Orientation day in late January after registration. After demonstrating exemplary conduct and teamwork ability you will be awarded a TSiBA scholarship.

If you have any questions about any of the above mentioned requirements, or would like more information please contact: +27 (0) 21 532 2750 or email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
