What is an Overseas Education Loan?

The idea of furthering your studies overseas can be extremely thrilling. Your child gets to experience a different life out of Singapore, meet new friends and more importantly, experience what it is like to study in well-known institutions across the globe.

All this excitement also comes at a hefty cost. Overseas education costs go well into the six figures, and few can afford this just from their pocket.

This is why an overseas education loan can be a huge lifesaver.

An overseas education loan is a form of an education loan which helps your child fulfil his / her dreams of studying overseas. You will be able to use it to cater to your child’s tuition fees and living expenses overseas, amongst other things.

This way, your child will receive the education that they have always dreamed of, and you can pay for that education slowly over time.

The difference is that an overseas education loan is specifically tailored to cater for any spends that might occur during your time overseas.

These include your tuition fees and living expenses (food, accommodation, utilities, travel, etc.).

With so much to account for and being in a foreign land, an overseas education loan can help you take care of your overseas living and studying costs, while you better assimilate into life overseas.
