An Overseas Education Might Just Open New Windows Of Opportunities For Your Child

Broaden your horizons with an overseas education loan from Lending Bee®.

Most parents dream of giving their children the very best that life has to offer. When it comes to education that often means sending them to institutions of learning in nations known to offer the very best education in the world.

After all, providing your child with the best education is the goal of every parent. It also paves the way for their future.

In Singapore, parents typically send their children to these three countries for further education: The United States of America, the United Kingdom, and Australia.

Even though parents are excited about the benefits an overseas education can bring for their children, the financial implications are often daunting.  Such 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. Your child gets the education you have always hoped to give them, and you can pay for that education slowly over time.

What Is An Overseas Education Loan?

An overseas education loan functions in about the same way as a personal loan would. The difference is than an overseas education loan is specifically tailored to cater for any spends that might occur during your child’s 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, Lending Bee hopes that by helping you with the education costs, you child will be able to better assimilate into life overseas.

The power of a good education is largely unparalleled.

The Financial Implications Of An Overseas Education

At Lending Bee, we believe that an education loan allows you to shift your focus to what is truly important: your studies.

This is the number 1 destination for Singaporean students going to study overseas due to its proximity to Singapore and large Asian culture.

It is important to note that the above numbers stated are just the tuition fees alone. There are still other costs to factor in such as accommodation, your child’s day to day living expenses, phone bills, meals and any other costs that they might incur if they opt to travel out of state during their breaks.

Another factor to keep in mind is the duration of your child’s degree. Most undergraduate degrees are 3 – 4 years long. By having a relevant polytechnic diploma, your child can shave up to 1.5 years of the degree, saving you a substantial amount of money. However, be sure to check with your child’s polytechnic or the overseas education consultant on which universities gives you credit.
