Onprettig slapen voor je beurs

Durban. Studenten werden gisteren wakker nadat ze 's nachts in de rij hadden gelegen op de parkeerplaats van de Universiteit van Zuid-Afrika in Durban. Ze wilden zo op tijd zijn om zich aan te melden voor een, zeer populaire, studiebeurs van de overheid.

The number of students applying for assistance from the scheme has been increasing in the last few years, with the latest 2009 figure peaking at more than 138,000, according to figures from the NSFAS.
