Loans for US Students in the UK

For US Students who are planning to enroll directly in a foreign school, your funding options are a lot more limited than for those studying in the USA. Exchange rates continue to eat away at the value of a dollar, making it even more expensive to study overseas. However, International Student Loan provides you with a complete funding source to cover your education costs in a foreign country.

The most economical way to fund your education when you are enrolled in a foreign school is to borrow all you can on Federal Stafford Loans, so make sure you complete your FAFSA and get your federal funding. But typically you will need a lot more than is available through the Stafford program, so you can also borrow any remaining funds that you need through our Foreign Enrolled Private Loan. Because it is school certified, you will not borrow more than you need.

Co-Signer Recommended for All Applicants

The Co-Signer must be a US citizen or permanent resident, with good credit, income history and who has lived in the USA for the past 2 years. There are very few students who have good enough credit and income history to qualify for a loan without a co-signer.

Foreign Enrolled Private Loans offer:

  • Funding limits up to the total cost of education, as determined by your school, minus any other aid received. Total cost of education includes tuition, room and board, and living expenses.
  • Fast online application and approval
  • No application fee and no out-of-pocket costs
  • Hundreds of approved foreign schools, including medical, dental, business and law schools

UK Immigration crackdown on Tier 4 students sees 70% fall in applications to private colleges

City AM reports that the UK government’s policy to cut immigration is having a devastating effect on private higher education, according to a new report published last week.

Prohibiting some international students, those studying at private institutions, from working part-time to support their studies in the UK must be reversed, the Centre Forum think tank argued.

“Since these controls were introduced in 2011, enrolment numbers are estimated to have dropped by around 70 per cent,” the report said. Continue reading
