We’re proud to partner with hundreds of universities and schools worldwide - and regardless of whether you have a school in mind or would like to explore your options further, you can browse our entire catalogue of supported schools to find the right option for you.

How does Prodigy Finance’s loan application process work?

Our application process is simple, and takes just a few minutes.

  • Once you’ve created your account and provided us with some basic personal information, we’ll be able to review your application and present you with a personalized and non-binding offer.
  • You’ll have up to 14 days to accept your quote and upload your supporting documents.
  • Once your documents have been reviewed and verified, you’ll be matched to funding in one of our matching rounds - after which we’ll send your loan confirmation letter, and you can then proceed to secure your international study visa. If you're attending a school in the US, your school will need to confirm your loan before we can send you your loan agreement to sign.
  • You’ll then sign your application agreement on reaching your country of study, and after we’ll countersign.
  • Your loan will be disbursed directly to your school - meaning you won’t need to worry about complex international transfers when arranging funds for your study abroad journey - and you’ll be able to begin your studies! As a full time student, you’ll only begin your repayments 6 months after your classes end.
  • Remember - by registering your Prodigy Finance account, you can submit as many applications as you like. If you receive conditionally approved funding from us for your second period of study, you can also submit a new application for this funding closer to your class start date of your second period!

Am I eligible to get an international student loan?

We’re able to finance students from 150 different countries - and regardless of which of our supported schools you intend to apply to, we can assist you with an international student loan so long as you meet some basic eligibility criteria.

Broadly, you’ll need to be seeking admission to a school and programme we support, you must be seeking to study your masters abroad, and you must not reside in a country we do not support.

APR (Annual Percentage Rate) is a rate that shows your total cost of borrowing, including the interest rate and any fees or additional costs. When comparing education loan offers from different lenders, it’s best to use APR rather than monthly interest rate. Your monthly interest rate will always be lower than APR because it only represents part of the total cost of your loan.
