Education Loan

Education Loans

Over the past two decades, the number of students who prefer higher education abroad has increased exponentially. In addition, there is a sharp increase in the number of students who choose an educational loan abroad because of higher costs for quality education abroad. Today, there are many lenders offering student loans.

A loan for India is also available for students who want to study at Indian colleges. However, there is a difference in the requirements for foreign student loans and research in India. In general, when applying for a student loan, you should keep in mind the following criteria:

  • A co-applicant is a must ( could be parents, a sibling or a spouse )
  • For loans between Rs 4 – 7.5 lacs a third party guarantor is required
  • Collateral needs to be provided for student loans above Rs 7.5 lacs
  • Loan repayment commences 6 to 12 months after course completion
  • If a student goes abroad, lender recovers the remainder from co-applicant

Lenders have their own developed criteria for the upper limit of the loan, the interest rate for payment and the period and method of repayment.

Lenders usually have pre-approved courses and institutions and usually pay student loans based on the quality of the institution, the relevance of the course for career options, the creditworthiness of the guarantor or the applicant.

For those applying for an educational loan in India, lenders will seek approval from AICTE or UGC
