Prepare for your on-campus experience

Become a local expert before departure

We’ve sourced advice from international students, like you, to create a curated list of tips for navigating campuses and cities around the world. Community Members will have access to our City Lookbook to get an insider look at life in your new home.

Grow your network with our regular events

Want to meet other prospective students who are headed off to pursue an international masters? Our team hosts events around the world, for all Community Members.  Discover if one of these events is happening near you.

Reap the rewards of becoming a brand Ambassador

Prodigy Finance Ambassadors work directly with our team to host events, speak to prospective students, and share feedback.  In exchange we’ll treat you to regular rewards such as branded gifts, health and wellness experiences, and opportunities for professional development.

Prepare for your move

Our team travels. A lot. Years of experience with boarding airplanes plus feedback from thousands of students led us to create a series of resources to help you secure the best travel deals. We even put together a handy list to help you get started with packing! Community members will gain access to our comprehensive travel guide, including extra baggage discounts from our partner airlines.

Focus on your finances

Our financial support doesn’t stop with your loan. Your savings are now sitting in your bank at home, ready to be converted to a new currency and spent in pursuit of the student experience.  Banks usually charge 3% to convert your hard-earned cash but that doesn’t have to be the case.

When you join the Prodigy Finance community, you’ll be able to follow our guide to forex and use a service like Transferwise and CurrencyFair where we offer discounts to help you save your savings.

How can you make sure that you get the transformation you want from your degree? Our friends at Arieli & Company will make sure you walk in with a strong game plan. You’ll have access to exclusive online workshops and discounts to individual coaching sessions with this premier career strategy and intelligence firm.
