A surety is a person who takes responsibility of your performance in fulfilling your Tuition Grant Agreement bond obligations.

You must nominate 2 sureties to sign the agreement with you. You and your sureties will be jointly liable to pay the liquidated damages if you fail to serve your 3-year bond.

If you do not have 2 sureties, you will not be able to sign the agreement and will have to pay full fees for your studies.

Your sureties:

  1. Must be between 21 and 65 years old
  2. Must not be an undischarged bankrupt
  3. Can be of any nationality
  • As part of the application, you need to upload photo-identity proof of both your own and your sureties' residential addresses.
  • You cannot be your own surety. We encourage you to nominate your family members to be your sureties.
  • You should not nominate someone who is a surety of another tuition grant recipient who has not served their bond obligations.
  • If you have signed the tuition grant agreement with 2 sureties for your polytechnic tuition grant bond, the same sureties can also sign the tuition grant agreement for your university tuition grant bond if they meet the above criteria.
