Over the period of time, international education has gained immense popularity among Indian students. But due to Covid, this has witnessed major disruption across the world. As a natural progression, the study abroad market witnessed a shift in the mode of learning – offline to hybrid and online. Now after a year of Covid-19, the fall season of 2021 looks hopeful for the students to realize their study abroad dreams. To choose right and to invest in a future which is bright, here are a few platforms that can help you study abroad in 2021:
Prodigy Finance for loans: It is a leading cross-border lender for international postgraduate students that lends based on your future earning potential rather than your current circumstances, and requires no co-signer or collateral for the loan. Prodigy Finance offers education loans without the need for security, a co-signer or guarantor at more than 750 schools around the world, in the fields of business, engineering, law, public policy and health sciences. Prodigy Finance’s unique global credit model is forward looking and assesses applicants on numerous variables. The entire loan application process takes place online, with the student signing their final loan agreement once they’ve reached campus. Interest is calculated using simple interest and is made up of a fixed margin, determined by Prodigy Finance, and a variable base rate, using 3-month LIBOR. There is only ever one fee for each loan (no hidden surprises) and there are no penalties for early repayments. Prodigy Finance is not a bank, rather their loans are financed each year by a community of investors who receive both a financial and social return.
StudyGroup for Universities: For 25 years, Study Group has been working with leading universities across the UK, Europe, North America, and Australasia.
