During the previous tax year I received student bursaries. My understanding is that bursaries are exempt from tax? I previously used TaxTim's tool to file my taxes and would like to use it again. When filling out tax information using TaxTim's tool, when/where should I input info about the bursaries that I received?

You can leave the bursaries out as you are correct, these are not taxable.
