In South Africa, a parent’s duty to support a child does not cease when the child reaches the age of majority (18 years) but usually ceases when the child becomes self-supporting. A parent’s responsibility and right to apply for maintenance on behalf of a minor child ceases when the child becomes a major, namely 18 years of age. However, this does not mean that a parent’s duty to maintain the major child now ceases. It means that in this instance, the child is deemed to be old enough to bring an application for maintenance in his or her own name. It has also been held that the wording of a court order regarding the responsibility of maintenance is the deciding factor as to when the maintenance obligation will lapse. So where a maintenance order provides for payment of maintenance until a child reaches a certain age (even beyond majority), such an order will not cease to exist when a child becomes self-supporting and will need to be set aside by way of an application by a parent that is able to prove that the setting aside of the maintenance order is warranted.

Yes, a Laptop or Chromebook is required for studies at TSIBA Business School.
Students accepted to TSIBA on Full Scholarships will be issued with a Chromebook on the commencement of their studies in 2023.
Students on Partial Scholarships will be required to bring their own devices. An entry-level Laptop or Chromebook would suffice for your studies, with our suggestion of a device equipped with an Intel® Celeron® processor, a minimum of 4 GB RAM and a built-in camera and microphone.
TSIBA recommends a Mecer laptop as they are manufactured locally, so local support for the device is available and provided. An alternative recommendation for an entry-level laptop would be an Asus laptop, as this brand also offers acceptable after-sales service. These laptops typically range from R3500 upward, depending on any additional hardware added (such as 1TB hard drive, 8GB RAM, etc).
