So You Wan to Apply For a Student Loan?

Many students pursuing higher education at some point go through the hustle and bustle of applying for a student loan. Most financial institutions here have this facility available and usually go on educational campaigns to get students to come in and take loans. It’s a two-way street whereby students can access the monies they need and the financial institution has secured business to be repaid over the coming years. Usually, it is a long and tiring process but students and parents alike will go through the hustle to get that all important loan.

A letter of acceptance together with a detailed costing from the University is the simplest of documents to get. Property seems to be most commonly used form of collateral in securing that student loan. Many students find difficulty in convincing willing persons with the necessary assets to pen their signature in the banks documents. After securing your loan you may be required to pay your interest, or your loved one may do so during your study period.

Persons are finding it more difficult to secure loans for persons since many persons are still defaulting even after they find jobs. With financial institutions now threatening to take stringent measures against students who default in payments, the student loan process may just become more and more difficult.

  1. The sad part is not being able to get suitable employment up on returning.I am evidence,got a huge loan at Aid Bank,and was looking forward to coming back to serve my country,but only God knows how i make it every month.

  2. What I want to know is how they expect us to meet their payment deadlines when the interest rates are so high in the first place. Isn’t the actual loan amount enough to keep us in debt for a decade or two? Must they add more complication to what we have on our heads already: will they accept me? where do I get the collateral from? will my loan be approved? how will I pass these courses? how do I get a job? how do I repay my parents/sponsors? how will I pay my bills and buy food? Even working as hard as we humanly can, it is so difficult just to get by here. And still SOME people want a university graduate in every household?! But you know, such is life, and so on…
