US loans

The U.S. Department of Education offers a Federal Direct Loan Program to help American students fund their studies overseas. Sallie Mae also provides private lending for educational purposes.

American students and their parents can find out more about US loans, loan regulations and how to apply for US funding on the US loans page.

Canadian loans

Canadian students can borrow federal and provincial loans.

International Admissions (based at our High Holborn building) can assist students with the pre and post enrolment loan forms that will be sent to you by the government. Additionally, we can assist with TL11A tax forms.

Please read through our Canadian Financial Aid Guide (PDF 139KB) for more information.

Canadian students can also borrow up to $10,000 to study at University of the Arts London through the Royal Bank of Canada.  The line of credit offers a competitive interest rate and may be helpful to supplement federal government loans that may not cover all of your study costs.

The programme is managed by Global Education Management Services (GEMS) who also works with our US students and their private bank loans.

Indian loans

Indian nationals can now borrow a Credila Bank loan to fund their study costs at University of the Arts London.

Students over the age of 18 can apply but will need to have a creditworthy co-signer.

This loan programme is offered through Global Education Management Services (GEMS) who also work with banks and private companies to provide loans to our Canadian and American students.
